if you follow my other blog, you will see that i had the most magical time in ischia and i think the photos do it justice. i had such a nice time using a new lens i'd been given for my birthday so, if you want to read all about it and see the photos, click on the link to the top right of this which says 'nancy knits'.
i didn't end up doing any knitting after all since i had to choose between wool and a snorkel in my suitcase and the snorkelling gear won out. i also didn't find any yarn shops but i didn't look for them either. next time... for there will be many more visits!
raffaele's nonna (brigita) was a real inspiration. she works (as do raffaele's aunts) as a seamstresses but she is 92 and still very busy with it! i have dreams of living in ischia for a while knitting products for figs and roses alongside brigita sewing while we drink our coffee and chat (so i can learn italian). this dream is not that far fetched actually...
