On my last day in Venice, a must for me was a quick visit to the only yarn store I could find listed; Lellabella. I had walked past it a couple of times this weekend, but only when it was closed.
Anyway, got there this morning for a quick look at some yarns that I would not often see back home in the UK. It is not a large shop, but the yarns stocked are very nice.
Some lovely 100% Merino caught my attention first, but as I was looking around, I saw the Four Seasons yarn from Laines du Nord. It’s a 94% cotton and 6% nylon mix which is really soft. In the picture above, the tray of mango coloured yarn in the top left is the same. I think the owners have knitted swatches for every yarn they stock which is really helpful.
I purchased a selection of pinky/purple/lilac balls, most likely to make a scarf or shawl, and probably knitted. The deeper purple has not come out right, so I may try and get another picture sorted.
I am limited on space in my luggage, hence only getting as much as I thought I might need.
So, over the next two weeks I shall review Ravelry to see what takes my fancy, or maybe think of something myself.
Happy crafting folks.
