Collane tricot / Spool knitting necklaces

Un post rapido per condividere con voi un genere di lavoro di cui non vi ho mai parlato: le collane realizzate con la tecnica del tricotino. Il mio fidanzato ha la pazienza necessaria per creare le catenelle, più o meno lunghe, scegliamo insieme gli charm con cui abbellirle e poi io mi diverto ad assemblarle. 
Cosa ne dite di queste nostre piccole creazioni?
Quello che mi piace di queste collane è che grazie alla maglia tubolare restano molto morbide e leggerissime, ideali da indossare anche nelle giornate più calde.
Per oggi vi mostro solo queste due bianche, ma ne abbiamo realizzate tante altre, e le trovate tutte sul nostro shop.


A quick post to share with you something I've never written about before: our spool knitting necklaces. My boyfriend's got the patience to make the tubes, then we choose the charms with which adorn them, and my job is the fun to put them together. 
What do you think of these little creations? 
What I like about these necklaces is that thanks to the tube they're very soft and they weigh almost nothing, so they're ideal to wear on hot days, too.
Today I'll show just a couple of them, but we've made a lot more, and you can find them all on our shop.

  1. They are very pretty, Melatia! I like crocheted (cotton) necklaces as well. They are so comfortable at the neck and you don't have to worry about things like nickel allergy or so :D. Have a nice evening! Nata xxx

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…

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-…

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…
