Crochet again - finally! / Di nuovo uncinetto - finalmente!

Hello in there! It's been too long since I shared with you some crochet - not that I forgot my hooks, not at all, it's just that there's never enough time to take nice pictures of the new creations, so I'm a little behind myself...
Well, anyway, here's an item I'm really happy with: a neckwarmer that can also be worn as a kind of open slouchy hat. It took me just a few hours and 150 g of wonderfully soft merinos wool to make it, and it's so warm and cosy! Working with a 6 mm hook on this project was what I needed between my baby cardigans knitting on tiny needles, I had such a relaxing time, and I'm really satisfied with the way it turned out. 
The pattern is my own and incredibly easy, I'm thinking about writing it down and publishing it for free on Ravelry, what do you think? Might be interesting? : )

Ciao a tutte! E' passato un bel po' da quando ho scritto di uncinetto - non che l'abbia lasciato perdere, tutt'altro, è solo che non c'è mai tempo per scattare foto decenti alle nuove creazioni, quindi sono un po' indietro...
In ogni caso, ecco qualcosa di cui sono particolarmente contenta: uno scaldacollo che può essere indossato come una sorta di cappello morbido aperto. Mi ci sono volute poche ore e 150 g di lana merinos incredibilmente soffice per realizzarlo, ed è caldissimo! Lavorare per un po' con un uncinetto da 6 mm era quello che mi ci voleva in mezzo agli sferruzzamenti di golfini su ferri sottili, mi sono rilassata e sono molto soddisfatta del risultato.
Lo schema è di mia invenzione ed è incredibilmente semplice, sto pensando di scriverlo e di pubblicarlo gratuitamente su Ravelry, voi cosa ne pensate? Potrebbe essere interessante? : )

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-…
