Another pattern / Un altro schema

Hello everyone! Thanks a lot for your appreciation of my new neckwarmer, I'm so glad you liked it! I published its FREE pattern on Ravelry if you're interested (both in English and Italian translation), in case you decided to try it out please tell me what you think, and if you're a Ravelry user I'd be glad if you'd rate it, too! : )

Since we've still got a few cold weeks ahead I thought I'd share with you another pattern, for a project I made while most of you were not my readers yet, a pair of fingerless gloves with mitts for my boyfriend (here's the link to the original post). 
This one's on Ravelry too (click here), with the others I've already told you about; it's a pretty quick project, worked with a 5.5 mm hook (US I) and worsted yarn, so there's still plenty of time left to hook and wear them!

Ciao a tutte! Per cominciare grazie davvero per i vostri commenti sul mio nuovo scaldacollo, sono contenta che vi sia piaciuto! Ho pubblicato lo schema per realizzarlo su Ravelry, è GRATUITO ed è disponibile anche in italiano, se decidete di provarlo fatemi sapere cosa ne pensate, e se siete iscritte a Ravelry sarei felice se voleste valutarlo! : )

Siccome ci restano ancora un po' di settimane fredde ho pensato di condividere con voi un altro schema, di un progetto che ho realizzato quando la maggior parte di voi ancora non mi leggeva, un paio di guanti senza dita con muffole richiudibili per il mio fidanzato (qui il link post originale). Anche questo è su Ravelry (clickare qui), insieme agli altri di cui vi ho già parlato. Si tratta di un progetto piuttosto rapido, da lavorare con uncinetto da 5.5 mm e lana worsted, quindi c'è ancora tutto il tempo per farli e indossarli!

I wish you all a nice weekend, and happy hooking and knitting, of course! ; )

Vi auguro un sereno weekend, e buon uncinetto e sferruzzamento, naturalmente! ; )

    Jacqui xx

  4. Ciaooo devo specializzarmi un po con Ravelry e poi vengo a trovarti anche che belli i guanti ad uncinetto!!Brava brava!!!buona settimana!!

  5. belli , ancora utili, chissà che una sera di queste non riesca a iniziarli perchè sarebbero utili, ma con il mio cervello ancora in modalità bradipo li potrei finire per il prox inverno!

  6. gorgeous! Thanks for sharing :) My man is a complete freak and only wears scarfs/gloves/hats when it's icy and snowing so I will queue these up for next year - I think he'd really like them!! xx

  7. Thnaks for sharing your patterns, that's very nice !!!! I wish you a very creative and lovely day ...

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…

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…

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-…
