    1. Ciao Anna! Ho pensato di iniziare con una cosa semplice, uno scaldacollo, anche se mi sembra che non finisca più... xD

    1. Grazie, spero che a lavoro ultimato rimanga bene!
      Io sono al mio secondo tentativo e comincio a prenderci la mano, trovo sia una via di mezzo tra l'uncinetto corto e i ferri, che invece non riesco assolutamente ad usare, perciò forse per chi lavora bene a maglia, come te, è più facile... Cmq ho visto che si può usare tranquillamente un uncinetto corto per provare, se vuoi farti un'idea di com'è... : )

  7. Very pretty! I like Tunesian crochet, too, although I have to admit that I didn't make much with it. A map for my crochet hooks I got finished and used, and a bowl I never finished :D. But it's an interesting kind of crochet and your scarf looks great, I like that yarn as well. If that long hook is too unhandy: I've seen that also circular Tunesian hooks are available, with a rope like knitting circular needles. Maybe they would be better? But I still have to try them myself, too, I also have got only that normal long stiff Tunesian hooks ;-).

Bye, Blogger

I'll write on my WordPress blog only, from now on, so if you want to follow me you'll find me there. I won't delete this blog, as I'm attached to it and it reminds me of the road I travelled so far, but at least for now I won't update it anymore.

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…
