Arriva il freddo / Cold is coming

Ciao a tutte le mie lettrici! Sono stata a lungo lontana dal blog, ma non sono stata inattiva per quanto riguarda i progetti all'uncinetto, tutt'altro. Il fatto è che ci sono tante cose da mostrare, ma anche tanto da fare in questi giorni, quindi arrivati a questo punto rimanderò tutto a Novembre. 
Il mese di Ottobre è così, in bilico tra l'autunno e l'inverno, tra la luce e il buio... con Samhain alle porte si tende ad essere introspettivi, a guardare indietro verso cosa abbiamo fatto e in avanti verso quello che ci auguriamo di riuscire a fare... insomma, tra i pensieri e gli impegni mi è rimasto davvero poco tempo da dedicare a questo piccolo spazio virtuale. 
In ogni caso oggi ho deciso di condividere con voi un progetto realizzato il mese scorso. Sono tornata ad uno dei miei primi amori uncinettosi, i manicotti di lana, questa volta in versione extra calda e con l'aggiunta di una treccia a vivacizzare il classico colore beige. Purtroppo la foto non rende bene, dovrò scattarne una migliore, ma ci tenevo a sapere cosa ne pensate!

Hello to all my dear readers! I've been away from my blog for quite some time, but I haven't been lazy with crochet at all. Thing is, there are too many items to show, but also too many things to do these days, so I decided to show you all in November.
The month of October is just like this, in the balance between Autumn and Winter, between light and shadow... with Samhain coming we tend to be introspective, to look back toward what we did and to look ahead forward what we wish we'll be able to do... so, between all these thoughts and tasks I have very little time for this little virtual space.
Anyway, today I decided to share with you something I did last month. I went back to one of my first crochet crushes, the wool fingerless gloves, this time in an super cozy and long version, with an extra cable to juice up their classic beige colour.
Unfortunately this photo doesn't do them justice, I must definitely take a better one, but in the meantime I wanted to know what you all dearies think about these!


  1. wow che belli! Anch'io sono in periodo guantini! :D

  2. Mi piacciono molto, originali!

    p.s. Mi sono trovata benissimo con l'uncinetto col cavo, pensavo che quella specie di codina col tappetto finale fosse d'impiccio, invece sono comodissimi, poi con i connettori si possono unire vari cavi e lavorare misure impensabili con gli uncinetti tunisini normali.

  3. I manicotti sono bellissimi ......ed è anche ora!!!! Buona serata

  4. Your mittens are really beautiful !!!!
    Have a great day !

  5. Very beautiful!!!
    Have a nice evening.:*

  6. Ciao e bentornata!I manicotti sono bellissimi!

  7. Welcome back in blogland, dear Melatia! Nice that you're here again :-). The gloves are fantastic. A pretty pattern and it's beautiful with this yarn/color. Is the pattern (or a link to it) somewhere to find? Have a happy day! Nata xxx

  8. Sono bellissimi !Anche il colore mi piace molto ! Il motivo a treccia è splendido , ideali per i primi freddi !
    Un abbraccio

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…
