Sock Monkey

So I've just returned from my wonderful (but way too short) trip to Italy and London. my highlights were walking the deserted streets of Venice at night, a boat ride up Lake Como and all the delicious food and drink. My favourite new drink is an Aperol Spritz.

I used my iPod a lot on my holiday, and decided to make a new style cover to give it a little personality. So I've made 2 little sock monkey covers that fit iPods, iPhones and other devices of similar size. I like the green one the best, I think.

2 days till Italy...

Very early Friday morning I leave for Italy. Our destinations are Rome, Florence, Siena, Lake Como and Venice. Followed by a couple of nights in London. So I'll be posting some pretty photos of Italy over the next 3 weeks. I'm most looking forward to gondola rides in the canals of Venice!
