Finalmente! / Finally!

E' stato un percorso lento, in parte anche per colpa delle mie esitazioni, ma finalmente è ufficiale:
Il mio negozio su Artesanum

La bottega è ancora in fase di costruzione, man mano compariranno nuovi prodotti, in ogni caso per me è stato un passo importante, e spero mi porterà bene... Ho ricevuto tanto incoraggiamento da parte di chi mi conosce e anche da parte delle mie lettrici, senza tutte le belle parole che avete dedicato alle mie creazioni non avrei trovato il coraggio per fare questo tentativo. Perciò vi ringrazio tutte una volta di più per il supporto, e vi auguro un buon inizio di settimana.

It's been a slow path, also because of my many hesitations, but it's finally official: my shop is open on Artesanum!

Il mio negozio su Artesanum

My shop is still under construction, day after day new products will appear, but this has been an important step for me, and I hope it'll be a lucky one... I've received a lot of support from people who know me and from my readers as well - without all the nice words you dedicated to my creations I may have never found the courage to make an attempt at this. So thank you all once again, I hope this next week will be a great one for all of you.


  1. My best wishes for your shop !!!

  2. Anche da parte mia un grandissimo in bocca al lupo!!!!

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…
