Good evening,my dear friends…..
I’m spending this weekend alone since my Big man is away for job and, as always in these occasions, there are a lot of crafty hours at my disposal… for which,honestly, I’m thankful a lot, otherwise I’m not sure if I would be able to craft all the items on my to do list before winter’s holidays…. well,I confess that sometimes it happens that I have to make a hard choice… which those of you who love to read can easily understand….
…… during the day it is not a problem, crafting is like working for me,but during the evening hours….. well,at the end,even if I’m deadly tired, at least ten pages of this nice book are read… 🙂
I obliged myself to go out early this morning and spend some time downtown… I’m not a sport kind of girl,I’m definitely a sofa kind of girl and of course my waistline suffers a lot for that…. well,to be precise,I need a goal to move my backside…. usually this was a job but since I don’t have one I went for one hour walk till a popular knitting café and bought some yarn to knit a beanie for my Big man (the photos are on the bottom of the post) ….a nice way to familiarize with the surroundings….. I had a nice comment exchange with Jennifer from Squirrel Picnic which made me think about the town of Parma, better about me living here…. I still don’t know if I like it or not but I took some photos of the town during my walk and I do not dislike what I see in them…. 🙂
Do you see the grey heavy clouds….? This is the weather which you can find here for three quarters of the year… for a person who lived here for most of her life is not easy to get used to….. I didn’t take photos of the main square because if you google Parma, piazza Garibaldi, the Baptistery and the Cathedral are the first photo you will see… I rather prefered to show you the places I usually wander in …..and my favourite stores …. a nice haberdashery…. now that Rossana closed her store I come here….
….. and here is the window of …… guess which store…. ? 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀
This is only a small part of the beautiful place which Non solo lana is…. what a beautiful yarny world… 😀
Since I’m talking about yarn, here it is that one I bought at Catia’s some time ago and which will become a tank top of mine… my new knitting project…. 😀 …. Roma, I was talking about that a few days ago…
Cotton…. perfect for me who suffers so much the hot-moist weather………..
….and this is the not yet knitted beanie (see the top 🙂 ) ………..
I love both colours…. oh yeah,did you notice that they are bright….. 😀 I was never a big fun of blue but lately I have discover this colour and have to admit that I feel quite comfortable while wearing it…. even my new glasses are of a dark blue shade…. lovely…. 🙂
Now,my dears,I’m trying to write something nice to say bye till the next post but have some troubles in making my brain work… I just hope that I manage to introduce you properly the place I’m living in and that you enjoyed my everyday tour….
Wish you all a great Sunday!
