I colori del bosco / The colours of the wood

La lana che ho usato per creare questa sciarpa l'ho trovata in un posto lontano dal mio bosco, un posto molto diverso, che però sento come mio. I colori di questi gomitoli mi hanno colpita subito, mi hanno ricordato la mia casa, e li ho presi senza un progetto preciso, sperando di usarli per qualcosa da indossare nelle mie passeggiate tra le foglie secche e gli alberi spogli. Sono stati un po' nella cesta dei gomitoli, in attesa che io trovassi l'ispirazione per usarli, cosa che è in effetti accaduta. Questo è il risultato, una sciarpa molto lunga, caldissima - quello che ci vuole per andare alla scoperta di nuovi sentieri...

I found the wool that I used to create this scarf in a place far away from my wood, a very different place, where I feel like I belong anyway. These yarns' colours immediately caught my eye, they reminded of my home, and I took them without a project in mind, hoping to use them to make something to wear during my strolling between fallen leaves and bare trees. They dwelled in the wool basket for a while, waiting for my inspiration for a way to use them, which finally came. This is the result: a really long scarf, incredibly warm - just what you need to discover new paths during your walks...


  1. hai ragione il colore è bellissimo!

  2. Hai proprio ragione. E' un colore con sfumature particolari.

  3. What a wonderful scarf! ♥ Beautiful colors and a great picture, the background's colors are matching so well! I like the way you photograph your works :-)

I'll write on my WordPress blog only, from now on, so if you want to follow me you'll find me there. I won't delete this blog, as I'm attached to it and it reminds me of the road I travelled so far, but at least for now I won't update it anymore.

100th post!

Hello everyone! I'm always pretty absent from my blog, I know. The Turn of the Wheel between October and November has brought back my creative inspiration and made it stronger than ever, so I've been incredibly busy with hooks and wools! : )  To celebrate my blog's 100th post I decided to share with you my latest finished project, a stole/scarf I made for Mum as a Xmas gift. I found this wool at a local market and chose the color with my boyfriend, as the gift is meant to be from the both of us. For those of you who may be interested, yarn is "Tosca Light" by Lang Yarns, shade 0048 "Altrosa". Craft on the other hand is once again Tunisian crochet, with whom I'm totally in love, and pattern is called "Sillabub", by great designer MariaGrazia Berno (check out some of  her others here). Since I still think of myself as a newbie regarding this technique I'm incredibly satisfied with its look - and the feel, oh, if I could tell you how sof…

Tunisian crochet hooks, pt. 1 / Uncinetti tunisini, parte 1

When it comes to Tunisian crochet, one of the first issues people face is: which hooks should I choose? I decided to write about my own experience in 2 or 3 posts, and hopefully help some of you. When I first wanted to try Tunisian crochet, I only had a couple of long hooks at home, and they were definitely too thin for a newbie, like 2,5 mm or such. So I headed to a local store and bought me a nice 5 mm one. It was the classic long, straight aluminium hook with a plastic stopper at one end and a pretty rounded tip at the other end, branded Pony. I practiced a bit with it, and I struggled because of the rounded tip. I didn't give up, though: I purchased some bigger sizes by the same brand, which were double-ended and all plasticI couldn't use those to save my life. The yarn didn't glide on them, and using them hurt my wrist terribly. Silly newbie I was, I blamed it all on the technique itself and took a pause from it, even though I did enjoy it. Too painful. Keep in min…
