November shades / Sfumature di Novembre

A cascade of fallen leaves that I can always bring with me!

Una cascata di foglie da portare sempre con me!



Do I have to write much about this shawl?
I don't think so, I'll just say some basic things: I love these Autumny shades, and I absolutely love this leafy pattern, so guess what? I'm in love with the finished shawl! : )
It's big enough to wrap around the torso and be tied behind the back - consider I'm 1.75m tall and not exactly thin...
Yarn is Maddison Colorado, colorway # 11. Lovely wool though 50% acrylic, quite soft and very nice to work with.

C'è bisogno che scriva molto riguardo questo scialle?
Non credo, mi limiterò a poche cose essenziali: amo le sfumature autunnali, e amo gli schemi che ricordano una cascata di foglie (qui quello che ho usato), perciò indovinate? Adoro questo scialle! : )
E' abbastanza grande da avvolgere il busto ed essere annodato dietro la schiena - contate che sono alta 1.75m e non proprio secca...
Il filato è Colorado del marchio Maddison, colore # 11. Bella lana anche se al 50% è acrilica, piuttosto morbida e piacevole da lavorare.

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-…
