I’ve been in Japan for the past two weeks and if you want to read about it you can go to my travel blog www.travelwithcj.com but I wanted to show you some wonderfully beautiful yarn I picked up in a little knitting store in Nara, Japan. I made these pretty little mits.
I knitted them all day long at the Grand Sumo Tournament here in Japan. It was opening day and I can’t imagine a better way to spend your last day in Japan than knitting with yarn you purchased here in Japan and watching Sumo.
I love knitting when I travel. I love buying yarns in different countries and cities and knitting up small items, like hats and fingerless gloves on my trips. I feel like you can put the energy of the place where you are knitting into each item. Here I am knitting at the Czech Ossuary. It’s a church that is decorated with the bones of up to 70,000 people who died in the great plague. Creepy and cool and awesome.
I did a little knitting in Prague Castle.
Then hit the local Kavarna for some beer and more knitting.
