Sono stata contagiata anch'io! / I've been infected too!

Avevo letto che una volta finito un baktus ne sarebbero seguiti molti altri in maniera inesorabile, ma non ci credevo, e invece... sabato ho comprato dei gomitoli stupendi in filato naturale, un misto di cotone, seta e lino, di una morbidezza unica e di un bel colore nature, con l'idea di provare a realizzare un baktus... eccolo qui, finito in un giorno e oggi finalmente fotografato. Un modello semplice, direi, il bordino un'aggiunta per movimentare un po' il lavoro, con un tema a triangolo che richiama la forma dello scialletto. Che ne dite, vi piace? Io ho già il cotone pronto per altri due di altri colori, perciò devo dire che me ne sono proprio innamorata...

I read that once you finish a baktus many more are soon to follow, but I didn't believe it, though... Saturday I bought some wonderful natural yarn, a mix of cotton, silk and linen, incredibly soft and a marvelous natural colour, and I had in mind to try and make a baktus... so here it goes, finished in a day and finally photographed. A simple model I'd say, with a triangular-shaped edge that recalls the shape of this little shawl. What do you think, you like it? I have already the cotton prepared for two more in other colours, so I must say that I'm really in love with them...

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…
