Vacanza / Holiday

Ebbene sì, dopo tanti mesi riesco a concedermi una vacanza. Ho un sacco di progetti in mente e ho bisogno di tempo per svilupparli al meglio, perciò oggi parto per passerò una quindicina di giorni in uno dei miei luoghi dell'anima, tanto diverso e per certi versi tanto simile al posto in cui vivo... 
Avrò accesso limitato alla rete perciò non riuscirò a venirvi a trovare e a lasciare commenti sui vostri post, e per questo mi scuso in anticipo, ma prometto che recupererò appena rientrata!! Potrò comunque a controllare le mail, perciò se vorrete contattarmi scrivetemi e vi risponderò entro 24-48 ore.
Auguro a tutte voi due splendide settimane creative, in attesa di risentirci con tante novità!

Yeah, after many months I'm finally allowing myself to go on a holiday. I've got lots of projects in my mind and I need time to develop them the best I can, so I'm leaving today to spend a couple of weeks in one of my soul's places, so different and somehow so similar to where I live... 
I'm going to have limited access to the web, so I won't be able to visit your blogs and to comment on your posts, I apologize, but I'll catch up as soon as I'm back, I promise!! I'll be able to check the e-mails anyway, so if you want to contact me write me all the same, you'll get an answer within 24-48 hours.
I wish you all two wonderful creative weeks, I'll be back with lots of news!


  1. Wonderful picture!! Best wishes for a heavenly holiday also here :-)

  2. Buona vacanza!Tornerai come nuova,con le idee molto chiare:i luoghi dell'anima fanno miracoli.

  3. Quando passi da me ... io ho un premio per te. :-)
    Bye, bye Elli

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…
