Mani ghiacciate / Frozen hands

Anche se i raggi del sole scaldano più del solito per la stagione sulle vette dei miei monti c'è ancora tanta neve. E' ancora tempo di lana che mi tenga al caldo le mani mentre passeggio nei boschi cercando di scorgere primule, anemoni e altri fiori precursori della primavera...

Although the sun is warmer than it usually is in this season, on the top of my mountains there's still a lot of snow. It's still a time for wool, to keep my hands warm as I roam through the woods trying to spot primroses, anemones and other wild flowers who announce the coming of springtime...


  1. Very beautiful !!!! Ideal for keeping your hands warm !!!!!

  2. Qui son tre giorni che sembra primavera(miracolo!),quindi mi fa un certo effetto vedere la neve!

  3. Questi guanti si portano sempre volentieri, oggi per esempio qui era una bella giornata ma ventosa e non mi davano fastidio. Sono belli, però non riesco a capire se sono all'uncinetto o ai ferri.

  4. Wow - love your mitts - look so warm against the snow!

  5. Che bello fare palle di neve con i mezzi guanti !!!.....qui da noi neanche un fiocco ....ancora spero nell'ondata di freddo che dicono arriva a giorni ciao

  6. Da noi, da quando ho montato le gomme termiche, non si vede più un fiocco di neve...belli i tuoi guanti!! Adoro!

Bye, Blogger

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…
