Verde innevato / Snowy green

Oggi vi mostro due lavori insieme, perché presi singolarmente rendono, ma credo che diano il meglio di sé abbinati, in qualche modo si mettono in risalto a vicenda. Amo le tonalità più scure del verde, specie lo smeraldo, perciò appena ho trovato una lana di questo colore ne ho acquistata una discreta quantità, in attesa di trovare l’ispirazione per trasformarla in qualcosa da indossare. Ho optato per un collo (o infinity scarf, non so se e quale sia la differenza), il primo che ho realizzato, scegliendo come motivo il bel pattern di Ana. I mezzi guanti sono arrivati dopo aver trovato un unico gomito sfumato nei toni del verdone e del bianco. Anche se collo e guanti sono nati separati trovo che si accompagnino bene, i loro colori nella neve mi ricordano le pinete imbiancate che fanno brillare di verde anche l’inverno…

Today I’m showing you two works, because they’re nice by themselves, but I think that together they’re even better, someway they highlight each other. I love the darkest shades of green, especially emerald, so as soon as I found it in yarns I bought a discrete quantity of it, waiting for the inspiration to create something with them to come. I decided to make myself a cowl (or infinity scarf, not sure about the difference), my very first, and as a pattern I chose this very pretty one by Ana. The fingerless gloves came some time after, when I happened to find a lonely yarn in the shades of even darker green and white. Even if the cowl and the gloves were born separately I think they mesh well, and their colours remind me of the snowy pinewoods that make the Winter shine with green as well…


  1. Il tuo collo è di un bel verde, e il punto non è da meno. Ciao, Anna. P.s. dispiace che l'inverno stia finendo (almeno da me) perchè non si potranno indossare questi caldi abbinamenti.

  2. I love your scarf and gloves !!!!! Very beautiful !!!!!!

  3. Wonderful, Melatia! Your cowl is so beautiful, and I love it in color green ♥ Thank you for letting me know :-) I will follow your blog from now on...

  4. I love your works! Beautiful! I follow you.. Silvia

  5. A wonderful set, Melatia! ♥ I like this pattern very much, too, and it looks great in that green. The gloves' color combination with white is very nice. About the expression, I'm not 100% sure, but on my blogland journeys I got the following impression: Scarf - a long piece with two ends. Cowl - a round piece with no ends, goes 1 time around your neck. Loop or infinity scarf - a round piece with no ends, goes 2 or more times around your neck. Greetings, Nata :-)

  6. Bellissimo questo colore!Ma..hai cambiato nome al blog?

  7. Questo abbinamento è proprio di mio gusto e i guanti non ho ancora provato a farli ma mi piacciono davvero tanto . Credo che il collo sia quello da infilare e basta , tipo un tubo , mentre l'infinity è una sciarpa lunga ma unita in modo da poterla arrotolare . Ops ! Mi sono accorta adesso che qualcuno ti aveva già risposto....
    Fa niente , ti abbraccio e a presto

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…
