I just wanted to... / Volevo solo...

I just wanted to wish you all a wonderful new week! 
I know I haven't updated my blog lately, not that I haven't been working, on the contrary! But outside is often overcast and I can't get decent pictures of my items... sooner or later I will! : )

In the meantime, here's a pic of one of my beloved mountains, maybe my most loved one, for you!

Volevo solo augurarvi una stupenda nuova settimana!
So che non ho più aggiornato il blog, non che non abbia lavorato, al contrario! Ma fuori è quasi sempre buio e non riesco a scattare foto decenti... prima o poi ce la farò! : )

Nel frattempo, per voi una foto di una delle mie amate montagne, forse la mia preferita in assoluto!


  1. Great mountains !!!!! Beautiful ! That's the same for us, the light is not good .... we miss it !!! Have a lovely and creative week too !

  2. Your mountains are gorgeous.

  3. Una foto stupenda, Valentina, complimenti!

    Sul mio blog ho scritto un commento di scusa e rammarico e desideravo esprimere la stessa cosa anche qui da te!
    Scusa ancora e grazie per le tue visite:)

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…
