Bomboniere / Party favors

Vi presento alcuni dei lavori che ci hanno tenuti occupati negli ultimi giorni, delle bomboniere per una cresima, appena finite e pronte per la consegna. Cosa ne pensate? : ) Abbiamo fatto da noi i quadrifogli di gesso, aromatizzati al muschio bianco. Per 10 bomboniere sono stati usati dentro il sacchettino, in altri 10 accompagnano i confetti come decorazione esterna.

Today I'd like to show you some of the items we've been working on lately, some confirmation party favors, just finished and ready to be delivered. What do you think about them? : ) We've made the chalk clovers on our own, and we perfumed them with white musk. For 10 party favors they're inside the little bag, while the other 10 have sugared almonds inside and the clovers are glued outside the bag.

Aggiungo che non ho abbandonato il mio amato uncinetto, tutt'altro, solo che sono occupatissima e non riesco ad aggiornare spesso quanto vorrei il mio blog, in ogni caso presto vi mostrerò qualche nuova creazione... nel frattempo auguro a tutte una buona settimana!

I want to add that I haven't forgotten my beloved crochet, quite the contrary, I'm just too busy and I can't keep up with the blog as much as I'd like to, anyway I'll soon show you some new creations... in the meantime, I wish you all a lovely week!

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…

The discovery of "Railway Knitting"

Hi folks! Here's a small adventure that happened to me that I'm gonna tell you about, mainly because it brought me to a really interesting discovery. Some days ago I received a message on Ravelry from a lady who's made her own Tunisian crochet version of the "Pfeilraupe" scarf. She sent me a picture to show me her work, which was simply stunning: she managed to recreate the exact shape of the knitted one, with marvelous use of short rows, plus in honeycomb stitch, which I love (you can check out her project page here). We exchanged a few messages, and by checking her profile I discovered that I was talking to Dela Wilkins! When the sudden feeling of being a complete idiot for not recognizing her before was gone, I felt (and still feel!) SO privileged: a famous teacher, a published author, took time to write ME about an item we both tried to make in TC. Wow!! Well, of course I did some more searching and found that Dela's book on TC, "Railway Knitting W…

Tunisian crochet hooks - Pt. 4 / Uncinetti tunisini - Parte 4

In 3 past posts I talked about a variety of Tunisian crochet hooks (part 1, part 2, part 3), sharing my experiences and opinions with you all. In this post I'm gonna write a very specific kind: BIG hooks.Bulky and super bulky yarns are a reality, these days. If you like these kinds of yarns, you might seriously consider trying them with Tunisian crochet. Especially if you use simple stitches, like Tunisian simple stitch or Tunisian knit stitch, this technique really makes the texture of both stitch's and fabric stand out. I'm not a sucker for gigantic yarns and hooks, normally, but I do think that, a few times a year, crocheting with big hooks is lots of fun. Question is, where to find those really big Tunisian hooks?Denise sets go up to 15 mm hooks, but what if we want even bigger ones? Well, not to worry: ChiaoGoo makes Tunisian hooks with flexible cords up to 25 mm! ChiaoGoo's are bamboo hooks, wonderfully smooth, with a nicely pointed tip, and even though they'…
