Spring in Sorrento

Hello,

Home again from a sunny couple of days on the Amalfi coast of Italy …. yes, I know it was beautiful here too!

No problems with crochet hooks on the flights, fortunately, so I was able to start on my latest waistcoat project – now that I’m hooked on summer crochet – pics of that to follow soon.

The scenery was stunning: Sorrento, Positano, Amalfi and, my favourite of all our visits, Capri.

Then we continued along the coast to Amalfi …

The highlight for me was definitely Capri: everything about our day there was just right.

Spring was definitely in the air ….

I had hoped to see a couple of wool shops or some local crafting but sadly we didn’t. There was an attractive looking shop in Capri which remained stubbornly closed all day.

it looked rather attractive through the window though

Our trip had been great and we returned refreshed; the weather at home was even beautiful to welcome us back……

and two pebbles from the beach at Positano are sitting with my cottons awaiting the right motif to show off their shape. Maybe that will be done by the next time.

That’s all for now,
