Guess what the UPS man brought me today?

I just got my author’s copy of Knitting from the Center Out from STC! I can’t even express how beautiful it is – all the hard work, the breakthroughs, the struggles, the aha! moments, the sleepless nights, the writing, the knitting, the editing, the re-editing, one gargantuan year of my creative life all wrapped up in a neat little rectangle of 160 pages.

In my very first conversation with my editor, she asked me if I already had a vision for the look of the book, and all I could come up with in that first flustered moment was “well, just… pretty!” And that it is. Every stitch pops right off the page, and each project cries out “make me!, make me!” The photography, styling, and illustrations are all dripping-off-the-page gorgeous. I can’t wait to share this book with all of you and see what you make with my ideas.

The book hits the shelves November 1, and I’ll be talking about it lots more in the meantime here and on Facebook and Ravelry and Twitter. You can get your very own copy here, or check out my new sidebar at the left.

Knitting from the Center Out: an Introduction to Revolutionary Knitting

Order your copy today!

I owe a huge debt of gratitude to everyone who made this book possible, to everyone who made it so beautiful, and to everyone who supported and encouraged me along the way. You know who you are, and you rock my world.

    Segway Verona offers tours that make sure you will enjoy a fun and immerse experience of our beloved city. We combine Segway, our innovative way of transportation, with tours in the historical city centre. Through our explorations of 1 or 2 hours, we will bring you to the most breathtaking spots, so that, if you do not stay long in Verona, we make sure that you see all of the unmissable sights!

    Segway is really easy to use! It is so intuitive that it feels like an extension of the human body. To understand why, consider this: if you stand up and lean forward, so that you are out of balance, you will intuitively put your leg forward. Segway works the same way: to move forward or backward, the rider just leans slightly in such direction, and Segway will follow your movements. It is also easy to turn right or left, since the rider just has to push respectively Segway’s handlebar.

    Segway is safe. Anyone over the age of 12 can join our tours, except for pregnant women. Apart from these cathegories, we encorage people of every age to try Segway, because this self-balancing object can really make your experience in Verona much more delightful! In fact, if it is hot, you will enjoy some fresh air and avoid to sweat; if it is cold, you will have the possibility of staying outside the least possible time. It is proved that our 2 hours tours show you what you will see in 6 hours walking!

    All the tours start with a little training on how to use Segway, because for us safety is the priority. However, we experienced that it takes just a little practice to master on Segway! There are no required skills and, in particular, no need to be able to bicycle. There will always be a tour leader with you, guiding the whole group, so that you can enjoy the view and the tour of Verona. Audioguides (available in different languages) will provide the information you need to fully comprehend the history and architecture of our main monuments, squares and buildings.

    In particular, our 2 hours tour will show you: Piazza Bra, one of the biggest squares in Italy, with the Arena, the famous Roman amphitheatre; we will then take Via Oberdan in order to see Portoni Borsari, one of the ancient entrance of the Roman city; we will firstly explore Piazza Erbe and secondly Piazza Dei Signori, two squares full of symbols and buildings with enchanting beauty, and then see Arche Scaligere. Heading to the Duomo, Verona’s Cathedral, we will pass by Santa Anastasia, next to the Conservatory of music; after that, we will have a break on Ponte Pietra, the bridge with the breathtaking view of the Roman Theatre and San Pietro Castle (and much more). On our way back, we will stop at Juliet’s house, so that you don’t forget to take pictures and write your names on the walls! We will conclude our tour with Castelvecchio, the Scaligeri castle and enjoy its amazing view of Verona.

    People who went on tours with us really appreciate our flexibility: we do not have fixed tour’s hours, so we can arrange the time that fits the best. Moreover, we try to adjust the path according to your preferences, spending less time on spots you have already seen and dedicate more on your favourite sights.

    OFFICE HOURS: Monday to Saturday (only closed on Sunday) from 10 am to 5 pm.
