There is nothing quite like window shopping in Italy. I find that if you see something you want to remember, you need to take the photo right away... because if you don't, the window will change.

|One yarn display|
I just finished two days at the Pitti Filati, which is a trend show for yarns that takes place in Florence Italy, twice a year.
If I had to pick one statement to make, regarding trends, it would be TEXTURE. The yarns are textured, the stitch patterns are textured, and the garments are textured.
Here are a few samples of different ways texture was created in the knit fabrics themselves.
