Sicily and Tuscany are in my blood. Travelling, movies, music, and art are the things I enjoy the most. I love whales, tattoos, the sea, Africa, good food, big smiles, Picasso, ‘The Master and Margarita’, and ‘Marriage Italian Style’. I believe in Charles Darwin and in the proverbs my grandmother said.

We’re continuing our journey into the knit stitches world today by doing the Granite knit stitch with the added touch of pairing up two colors. This knit stitch is easy-peasy and super cute.

The pure cotton tape Sailorman has been chosen in the colours Milk and Jade.

Let’s get started.
