Determinazione / Resolution

Di quante tecniche vi ho parlato in questi mesi? Uncinetto, knooking, uncinetto tunisino... ma in fin dei conti il mio sogno è sempre stata la maglia, che non sono mai riuscita ad imparare, nonostante gli sforzi. Si vede che fino a ieri non era il momento giusto, perché ieri sera ho chiesto per l'ennesima volta alla mia paziente mamma di spiegarmi come si fa, perché questa volta non ho avuto nessun problema!
Così, finalmente...
How many techniques have I written about during these months? Crochet, knooking, tunisian crochet... but in the end my dream has always been knitting, and I'd never been able to learn how to do it, though I tried really hard. Well, maybe the time just wasn't right before yesterday evening, when I asked my patient mum for the umpteenth time to explain me how it's done, because this time I had no problem!

So, finally...


  1. Brava, brava, brava.....ancora brava... perché vedo che stai imparando con il ferro circolare.....i
    Ti rispondo qui: mio marito prima sgrana le melagrane, poi, non avendo la centrifuga, le passa con il passaverdura oppure con il mixer e poi cola tutto con un passino a maglie larghe .....ed è buonissimo e bellissimo il colore...Sereno week end

  2. Wayhay!! Congratulations! The same happened to me with day it just clicked!
    Hope you have many hours of fun knitting, along with all your other creative projects.
    Your perseverence has paid off...and your mum's patience...
    Well done - look forward to seeing more of your 'needles'work!!

  6. well done!! Hehe I've tried so many times and failed... I will have to have another go :)

  7. brava ci sei riuscita!!!io ho provato ma sono lenta e imbranata!!sigh...meglio con l uncinetto!!bacioni

  8. Pensa che la maglia è stata la prima cosa che ho imparato(la mia mamma era super brava e mi aveva insegnato fin da piccola),ma proprio non mi piace.Tanto mi diverte l'un inetto tanto mi annoiano i ferri..vai a capire il perché! E mi spiace molto perché i capi d'abbigliamento (come cardigan o maglioni)li preferisco lavorati a maglia,per esempio...Sei stata brava a insistere e ora ti si aprirà un mondo nuovo...un altro!

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…
