Fiori selvatici / Wildflowers

Ho pensato ai fiori selvatici quando ho trovato questo cotone multicolore. 
L'ho preso senza un'idea precisa, solo più tardi mi è venuto in mente di provare qualcosa di diverso. Uno schema molto semplice, una rete, però mobile, in modo che lunghezza e ampiezza del capo siano regolabili a seconda delle necessità: può essere indossato come coprispalle che copre per intero il tronco, oppure come foulard se si sente fresco solo al collo. 
Sono molto soddisfatta di come è rimasto, trovo che sia versatile e adatto all'estate, visti i colori vivaci.

I thought about wildflowers when I found this multicoloured cotton.
I bought it without knowing what to crochet with it, only some time afterward I decided to try something different. A very simple pattern, a net, but a moving one, so you can choose its lenghth and width: you can wear this item as a shawl that covers your entire torso, or as a foulard if your neck feels cold. 
I'm really satisfied with how it turned out, I think it's versatile and suitable for Summer, given its bright colours.

Trovate anche questo capo nel mio shop, o se preferite potete come sempre contattarmi via e-mail.

You can find this item for sale in my shop, or you can send me an e-mail, as always.

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…
