|Church of San Giacomo di Rialto,Venice, Italy|
Before, during and after the time of Shakespeare, the Rialto area of Venice has housed everything from an abbatoir and courthouse to a variety of markets -- and it does so still today. You can still find fish and seafood at the pescaria, and buy veggies to accompany il pesce and flowers for your table decor at the green grocers. Stop for a coffee break at the Drogheria Mascari, or pause for a light lunch of cichetti accompanied by crostini and a sparkly wine cooler called spritz.
Can't travel to Italy? Want to hold a bit of it in your hands?
Some of our loveliest yarn offerings are spun in Italy, including this week's special sale offering, the chunky version of the Rialto line of yarns from British designer, Debbie Bliss.
Composed of 100% Extra-fine Merino wool, treated to be "superwash" for easy care, Rialto Chunky will delight your fingers even as it knits up quickly on 6.5 mm (U.S. 10 1/2) needles or hooks. Two balls will make a cable hat with gorgeous stitch definition. Add a third ball, and you can made a soft scarf; five will make a lovely baby blanket.
