Warped Looms and More Jewelry

I can't believe it has been so long since I have posted! I have been diligently reading everyone's weaving blogs, but not reporting on my own (lack of) progress. Since I last posted, I have done the following:

Crocheted some jewelry (one of these days I am going to find a better surface on which to photograph jewelry):

And made no progress on my next set of woven recycled bags:

My inkle loom is still warped and waiting for someone to weave up some handles for the (non-existent) bags. I have also started making another crocheted alpaca hat, this time for my dad. I am also hoping to make a crocheted necklace for my sister. I am seeing all of these family members this weekend when we meet up for a family trip to Italy! I am really excited about the trip since I have never been Italy and I love to eat.

We are going to Venice and Rome. Do you know of any yarn shops in either of these cities? I can't wait to add an international yarn shop to my list!

Venice and Rome are both wonderful....especially for people who love to eat!!! (I definitely ate more in Rome though!)

The only fiber-related thing I remember about either place was buying a tapestry from a street vendor in Rome.

In Venice I was on a quest for mosaic tile. Not a very successful quest either....

Have fun!!! Eat some pasta for me!
