Indovinello... / Riddle me this...

Sabato mattina ho comprato i miei primi gomitoli di cotone, incoraggiata dalla bella stagione che si avvicina a grandi passi (ieri ha nevicato, ma questo è un altro discorso). Per il mio primo lavoro ho scelto un filato piuttosto spesso, e per il colore mi è bastato guardarmi intorno per trovare l'ispirazione nei meravigliosi colori della primavera. 
Devo dire che procede a meraviglia, ho già usato due gomitoli su tre che ne avevo... indovinate cosa sto tessendo? 

Saturday morning I bought my very first cotton balls, encouraged by the incoming warm season (yesterday here it snowed, but nevermind it). For my first cotton item I chose a pretty thick thread, and for the colours I just took a look around at the marvelous colours of Spring and there I found my inspirations. 
I have to say that it's proceeding wonderfully, I've already used two out of three balls I had... can you guess what am I weaving?

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…
