  • Great post Gale – I think I’m getting wanderlust

  • Thank you so much for bringing the world to us! Beautiful!

  • Fun! I mean Sababa!

  • Love this! I can’t believe I missed the yarn stores when I went a few years ago! 🙂

  • Correction: Daroma means southward but I guided you TZAFONA ! Oy! Apologies.

    • Well you went north tsafona and then you went back Darin’s- south. But I noticed too! Love this article and you hit all my haunts. I always buy little ” hamsas”in the Jaffa market which are sold on tiny metal rings – perfect stitch markers and gifts for all my knitting people back home

      • Darn spell ck. “Daroma”

  • Thanks for the beautiful post. Loved the photographs.

  • Thank you for sharing this post. Makes me want to follow in her footsteps . . . and maybe create some of my own in other places

  • I would love to see the Mediterranean from my bicycle 🙂

  • Beautiful post and photos. The one of the cobbled street in Safed, definitely frame-worthy.

  • Those embroidered benches are amazing. Good post op.

  • Beautiful pictures. It would have been even more striking if there were a few pictures from the West Bank.

    • why? why are you trying to politicize this? If her blog post was about a yarn crawl in St. Louis, would it be necessary to comment about segregated communities. If her post was about Portland, Oregon, would it be “even more striking” to mention the homeless on the street?

  • I was enthralled by your article. The pictures are breath taking. I worked 26 years for Dr. Abeliuk who loved Israel with every fiber of his being. He was born in Santiago, Chile imagrated to the states and eventually lived in Berkeley. I felt connected to him through your pictures. Maybe one day I will be lucky enough to experience Israel as well.

  • Your article was fabulous. I’ve been a KP member for many years and an avid knitter, living in NYC. We are off to an Israeli family bar mitzvah soon and your article is a great tour guide. I would love to send it to everyone who will be joining us. How to do that?
    Keep your stories going. Shababa. Ruth Rabbani
