Ci รจ voluta una settimana. With time verbs you usually use the verb essere. And "palle" referring to yarn balls in italian is funny. I say it all the time, but there is a very, very strong sexual double meaning. Balls and skeins in Italian are both gomitoli.

By the way, I like the topmost sketch. Very 1960's!


Oh dear. "I have six balls" takes on a whole new meaning! I'd better remember to use gomitoli--thanks!


I love your blog in Italian, and I spilled my tea over "I have six balls left" :-)

non avero? - I think you meant "non e' vero?" (isn't that true?)

I am always in awe of people who decide to learn Italian, it's such a complicated language.


Six balls... One could do things with six balls... ;-P
