Hello everybody,

just a quick post before disappearing for another month.

June has seen me running around in a frantic mode, from work to classes to homework to work to classes to homework again and again. Plus the end of school, soccer, baseball, t-ball, camping, organizing for summer, some family issues etc.

I had little time for eating and sleeping, never mind knitting, spinning or blogging.
But it was worth it, because now I have the rest of the summer off!*

So Tuesday the children and I are leaving for Italy, where we’ll stay for the rest of the month. While there is connectivity available from there, my previous experience tells me that I will be way to busy at the beach all day, and socializing with friends and family at night, to do any blogging. Usually I do not even knit much** (although I might do some yarn shopping!)

I will take my newly finished Side-to-Side top with me, to visit the homeland, so to speak.

*Well, not completely, I have still to finish some work, which I will have to take with me. Stupid deadlines!
** I know at least one famous blogger who knits at the beach all summer, and usually has blankets of mind-boggling beauty to show at the end of it, but my beach ethos largely rules out knitting.

You're getting there though and that's the main thing. Side to side looks so good on you, a wonderful addition to your wardrobe. Enjoy the beach when you finally get chance!

Great to hear from you, now off to the airport you go. Enjoy yourselves completely!

So glad to see you in your fab side-to-side. It sounds like you have been in a major swivet. I don't know how you survived all that frantic activity!

No blanket this year. Well, a small one. I should swim more and knit less, at the beach. Have a wonderful time in, Kay

Benedetta, I love the top. It turned out wonderfully. How nice to be able to take it with you to Italy. I'm sure I'm too late, but here's hoping you have a great time and get to laze on the beach for many days. I don't blame you, I probably wouldn't knit on the beach either. Probably would read, but that's about it.
