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! ; )

Bye, Blogger

I'll write on my WordPress blog only, from now on, so if you want to follow me you'll find me there. I won't delete this blog, as I'm attached to it and it reminds me of the road I travelled so far, but at least for now I won't update it anymore.

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…
