I've been published! / Mi hanno pubblicata!

Now that's some title, isn't it? Well, to tell the truth I *have* had an article, a review about TC book "Tunisian Crochet Stitch Guide" by Kim Guzman, published on one of the most famous Italian websites about knitting and crochet, Maglia-Uncinetto.it. I'm so sorry my readers from other countries won't be able to read it due to language issues, but don't worry: I'm translating this (and the other articles that will follow!) in English to publish on my blogs, so if you're interested you'll have your chance to read them anyway! =D

Dopo tanto, torno a scrivere un post in italiano: segnalo ai miei lettori che una mia recensione su un famoso libro ad argomento uncinetto tunisino, "Tunisian Crochet Stitch Guide" di Kim Guzman, è stata pubblicata sul famosissimo sito Maglia-Uncinetto.it. Non so descrivervi l'emozione, anche l'onore, di vedere un mio articolo comparire su questo sito: un sito che ho seguito fin da quando mi sono avvicinata al mondo dell'uncinetto, guardando le autrici e gli autori degli articoli con un'ammirazione sconfinata per le loro capacità e le loro conoscenze, pensando che mai avrei visto il mio nome come autrice... e invece, grazie alla redazione, in particolare a Veruska (altresì nota come Happysloth) che ha seguito molto da vicino il mio progetto, ben quattro mie recensioni su altrettanti manuali di UT compariranno su M-U.it!

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…
