Italian cottons making me giddy!  It's ridiculous I know, but I look at these beautiful yarns & I get butterflies...this used to happen when I'd walk into a fashion store, perhaps it's my age..geez is that sad?!

I've been drooling over this for quite some time but it's always been so expensive..until today, YAY for a bargain!! I picked up as many of these gorgeous balls as I could manage & dreamed the whole way home of what I might do with them...

I've 3 different hooks on the go, different sizes, different stitches trying to decide on what to create with this gorgeous cotton.  What I'm finding more & more is that I like simplicity, perhaps I need to stop thinking so much about it...
Don't expect great things, it's all looking a bit boring, but still I love it...

Other beautiful creative spaces over here...


  1. Gorgeous yarn! I guess now would be a good time to tell you I'm doing a wool giveaway on my blog. You certainly look like you'd be able to enjoy it!

  2. I think whatever you make with them will be magical..just because the yarn is so good! Great that you found them on sale..good timing.

  3. Boring? Nope. Let the yarn sing!

  4. Your such a good 'yarn' picker! Makes me jealous!

  5. these caught my eyes on the creative spaces blog !! i think i have crocheted a wool/cotton yarn last year for a cowl/snood that was pretty similar and it was italian too !!!
    the sneak peek in the last picture looks beautiful already !
