yarn in the making (or norah’s trip to italy)

From left to right and top to bottom:

1 – Looking for new yarns to buy is fun any time, but imagine being able to gaze out this window at the same time.

2 – One booth at the yarn fair  (Pitti Filati) was built around theme of kilims.  I like the faded earthy colors.

3 –  Beautifully and neatly wound pre-dyed top awaits its fate.

4 – Modern day spinning machinery,  I love the repetition.

5 – Multiple vats of top are set in motion.

6 – Monanorah, or is it the Norahlisa?  Silliness at the show

The highlight of my trip was the natural history museum.  The special exhibit of crystals just may have had a great influence on NGvol7.

  2. I love the colors in Italy itself! That rich red and ochre, the “virgin” blue of lapis…. Ahhhh. And the Kilm colors are wonderful too… Bring all that influence home to the already wonderful Berroco yarns!!
