Something / Qualcosa

Today I'd like to show you a shawl I made... well, about a couple of months ago in fact! It was meant to be a gift for a friend, but I've finally been able to give it to her only today, so I couldn't show you before, since she visits my blog from time to time.
The pattern, you may know it, is the pretty famous "Seraphina's Shawl" by Doni's Stuff (in case you're not familiar with it you can get it on Ravelry for free, and I highly recommend it: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/seraphinas-shawl). 
I used a thin wool, Four Seasons Gründl Hot Socks Spectra, shade 50, and it took me quite some time to finish, but I'm pretty satisfied with how it turned out.
So, not really a Xmas item as you can see, those are soon to come! : )

Oggi vi mostro uno scialle che ho realizzato un paio di mesi fa. Doveva essere un regalo per un'amica, ma sono riuscita a darglielo solo oggi, quindi non potevo mostrarvelo prima, dato che di tanto in tanto viene a leggere il mio blog.
Forse riconoscerete lo schema, è abbastanza famoso, si chiama "Seraphina Shawl" ed è di Doni's Stuff (se non lo conoscete potete scaricarlo gratuitamente da Ravelry, io ve lo consiglio: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/seraphinas-shawl).
Io ho usato una lana sottile, la Four Seasons Gründl Hot Socks Spectra, colore 50, e mi ci è voluto abbastanza tempo per finirlo, ma sono piuttosto soddisfatta del risultato.
Come potete vedere non si tratta di un prodotto natalizio, ma arriveranno presto anche quelli! : )

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…
