Eccolo qui! / Here's to you!

Nel mio ultimo post vi avevo fatto vedere un lavoro iniziato da poco e ancora da terminare, oggi vi rivelo in che cosa si è trasformato, perciò... eccolo qui!

In my last post I showed you a work in progress that was yet to be finished, and today I show you what's come out of it, so... here's to you!


Ho trasformato quei bei gomitoli di cotone cablé colorato in un foulard per la bella stagione! 
Sono veramente soddisfatta del risultato, anche se l'effetto è in larga parte merito delle sfumature di questo filato... cosa ne dite, vi piace?

I've turned those nice colourful cotton balls into a foulard to wear in the warm season!
I'm really satisfied with this item, although the credit for this lovely effect largely belongs to this yarn's shades... what do you think, you like it?

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…
