School was out June 12…and off we flew to Italy and Greece for 1o days. (When I say “we”, I mean me, two teachers, 18 freshmen, some parents, and my family (DH, 2 teenage boys) and my mom. ) It was truly the trip of a lifetime–and hard to put into words. We got home about a week ago, and all I can think about is where we can go next…
Mom and me in front of the Trevi fountain in Rome, fresh off the plane on the morning of Day 1. Note the gelato (had some every day. When in Rome…)
Florence, from the Ponte Vecchio.
From our hotel room in Delphi, Greece. Wow.
Some of the gang in front of the Parthenon. My two are in the hats.
The guys in Greece. Love ’em.
On the trip, I started a pair of socks as well- Regia this time, a Kaffe Fasset colorway.
I’m using a pattern by Jessica of Zarzuela Knits and Crochets…I love it. I’ve had it for a year or two, but I think there may be an updated version on Ravelry. It’s got two of my favorite characteristics: toe-up and done on a circular needle. I probably could’ve done a reinforced heel as well, but didn’t have instructions for that abroad.
In the meantime, a knitting update: Just finished a lime green Lamar scarf (pattern on Ravelry). Love the pattern and the yarn (Berrocco “Comfort”, in this case chosen for a gal that demands 100% itch-free fiber).
Hobbes was happy to help me by modeling the newly- FO.
And, as is my summer tradition…It’s Wimbledon time. Knitting and good tennis on summer vacation? *sigh*
