I’m back. Venice, Florence, Rome. In my early years I had traveled through Scandinavia and Great Britain. But, living overseas for so many years we always traveled home on our holidays.
The beauty and history of Italy of course was inspiring. And I kept close attention to the spring fashions. It seemed to be dominated by crochet fabrics. Many of them were embroidered with large colorful flowers. Of course there was a lot of color. Besides neutral crochet cardi’s, purple seemed to be very dominate. Teal, yellows and spring greens as well.
New crochet books have arrived from Rowen and Tahki with gorgeous designs which look very similar to what I was seeing. The Tahki trunk show is here in the shop until Easter. I hope to see you this week to see how these Spring yarns look in these beautiful garments.
