Fiori e spine / Flowers and thorns

Appuntamento del venerdì con le mie spinose, anche questa settimana piuttosto in forma con le fioriture... 
Un piccolo pensiero per le mie lettrici e per Laura, sperando di rileggerla presto.

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).

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…
