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…

And here's the Dragon! / Ecco il Drago!

Remember the Dragon Tail scarf/shawl I began some time ago? Well, last week I managed to finish it, and I'm oh so proud of it. Not only it's my first Tunisian crochet project, but it also turned out great, big and cosy and oh so soft (this thanks to the lovely yarn Géraldine sent me, Phil Bambou Laine by Phildar). It is 2 m long from tip to tip and 45 cm wide by the last scale, and the last row counts 110 stitches, which are quite a lot... : ) As I already wrote I strongly recommend this if you want to try Tunisian crochet, it's easy, good fun and you get a nice original item to wear. You might find this tutorial by Julia Marquardt helpful, but if you want to get one that's exactly like mine you have to change the pattern a little bit: I followed the instructions by a great designer, MariaGrazia Berno, who modified it a bit in order to obtain a scarf/shawl that curls up more. Her pattern says to increase of two stitches at the end of every row, just before the second-…
