Ottobre / October

E' iniziato uno dei miei mesi preferiti dell'anno.
Le giornate si stanno visibilmente accorciando, le temperature scendono, le nebbie sottili abbracciano gli alberi e le loro foglie si colorano e volano accompagnate dai venti dell'autunno.
Per inaugurare al meglio questa bellissima stagione mi sono regalata uno scialle nelle sfumature che tra poco assumeranno le fronde intorno a me. Si tratta di un enorme granny triangle dotato di frange, morbidissimo e avvolgente.

One of my favourite months of the year has just begun.
The days are getting visibly shorter, temperatures lower, thin mists embrace the trees and the leaves get all coloured and fly away with the winds of Autumn.
To start this lovely season in the best way possible I crocheted myself this shawl, its shades being those of the foliage that will soon surround me. This shawl is in fact an enormous granny triangle with fringes, very soft and embracing.

 
Sarà perché amo i grannies in tutte le loro forme, sarà perché adoro l'autunno, fatto sta che non ho fatto in tempo a finirlo che già lo indossavo!
 
Maybe it's because I love all types of grannies, maybe it's because I adore Autumn, I had barely finished it and I was alreay wearing it! 
 
Vi lascio con questa prima opera autunnale e un caro saluto a tutte voi che mi leggete e commentate: domenica partirò per una vacanza lunghetta, quindi per un paio di settimane non passerò a trovarvi. 
 
Vi auguro un fantastico Ottobre, pieno di misteri da scorgere tra le nebbie... 
 
I'm leaving you with this first Autumnal item and a goodbye, my dear readers: I'm leaving Sunday for a pretty long holiday, so for a couple of weeks I won't visit your blogs.
 
I wish you all a lovely October, full of glimpses of mystery between the mists...
 
Per chi fosse interessato al prodotto: questo scialle l'ho realizzato per me, ma su richiesta è possibile averne uno del colore e della misura che preferite! Potete contattarmi tramite il blog o visitare il mio shop! ; )
 
For those who may be interested: I made this shawl for myself, but I can make others by request, so you can choose the colours and size you like best! You can contact me through my blog, or you can visit 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…

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…
