    As I was readying for my trip to Italy with my husband this September, I decided to start a knitting project for any downtime since I would not have my computer. I had previously purchased Wonderland Yarn's Queen of Hearts sock weight yarn in the Off with Her Red colorway back in May when I visited the Yarn Store on Nob Hill in Albuquerque, New Mexico on a work trip.
