Sarà... granny chic? // Could this be... granny chic?

Ciao a tutte! Avete passato un bel ponte del 1° maggio? Io sono stata indaffaratissima, come al solito ultimamente, ma molto soddisfatta! : ) Spero che la vostra settimana sia iniziata bene, la mia devo dire di sì: ieri sera ho finalmente finito il mio primo copricuscino! Mi sono divertita tanto a lavorare queste due grosse mattonelle e poi a unirle insieme con un bordino classico a ventagli, sempre d'effetto, trovo... ora mi domandavo, come definire lo stile di questo lavoro? Granny è granny, e su questo non ci sono dubbi, ma questo colore è chic? Secondo me sì, perciò almeno per me sarà granny chic! : )
Che ne dite, vi piace?

Hello everybody! Have you had a nice 1st of May and weekend? I've been very busy, as usual as of late, but I'm really satisfied! : ) I hope your week started off well, mine did: yesterday evening I finally finished my first cushion cover! I've had lots of fun crocheting these two big squares and then putting them together with a classic shell edge, an evergreen... now I was wondering, how would you call this item's style? It's granny, for sure, but is this colour chic? I believe it is, so for me at least it's gonna be called granny chic! : )
What do you think about it, you likey?

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…
