E' sempre l'ora del tè! / It's always tea time!

Mi sono accorta che è passato un sacco di tempo dall'ultima volta che vi ho mostrato un mio lavoro all'uncinetto. Non pensiate che non abbia più lavorato, anzi, sto imparando diverse nuove tecniche che mi portano via molto tempo, ma qualche lavoretto sono comunque riuscita a finirlo, come questa tovaglietta. Quando ho visto questo cotone l'ho comprato al volo, come sempre senza sapere di preciso cosa ne avrei fatto - mi piaceva troppo il colore. Poi l'ispirazione: perché non provare a fare una tovaglietta per l'ora del tea? Essendo di una sfumatura così vivace credo che ispiri il buonumore solo a guardarla, e il motivo granny secondo me non stanca mai. Voi cosa ne pensate?

I realized that it's been a very long time since I last showed you some crochet. Don't think that I haven't been working lately, on the contrary, I'm busy learning some new techniques that take much of my time, but I've been able to make some new items, like this placemat. When I saw this cotton I immediately bought it, though I had no idea what to do with it - I just loved the shade. Then I had the idea to try and make a tea time placemat! Its shade being so bright I think it makes you in a good mood just by watching it, and I do believe that you can never grow tired of the granny patterns. What do you think about it?





Il set da tea della mia bisnonna mi sembra ci si accompagni proprio bene, ma non è in vendita, invece la tovaglietta sì, la trovate come sempre sul mio shop! ; )
My great-grandmother's tea set goes amazingly well with it in my opinion, but that's not for sale, only the placemat is, and you can find it as always in my shop! ; )

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…

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…

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-…
