Last week I’ve been enjoying a week’s holiday by my beloved sea. This, combined with an amazing cotton (Pic-Nic by Miss Tricot Filati), inspired me to create a set of Spring/Summer items, a slim scarf and a headband. This is my very first set of items, and I’m pretty proud of it. They’re both simple, everyday accessories, the ones I love the most as I can wear them, in fact, every day, yet they’re not boring to make and look quite intriguing.

I decided to name the set “Like a Wave of the Sea” (more explanations to come); I’m currently writing the instructions for both items, and I’d love to have them tested by 3 of my followers: if you’re interested, write it in the comments here or on my Facebook page, and in a couple of days, as soon as I have all info about gauge and materials, I’ll contact you.

La settimana scorsa mi sono goduta una settimana di vacanza al mare, mia grande passione. Questa circostanza, insieme ad un cotone fantastico (Pic-Nic di Miss Tricot Filati), mi ha ispirata nella creazione di un set di accessori per la primavera/estate, una sciarpina ed una fascia. Si tratta del mio primissimo set di accessori, e ne sono piuttosto orgogliosa. Sono entrambi capi semplici, da indossare tutti i giorni, del tipo che preferisco proprio perché, appunto, li posso portare ogni giorno. Non fatevi ingannare, però: non sono noiosi da realizzare, e il risultato finale rimane intrigante.
Il set si chiamerà "Like a Wave of the Sea" (in seguito spiegherò l'origine del nome); sto scrivendo le istruzioni per entrambi i capi, e mi piacerebbe farle testare da 3 miei lettori: se siete interessati, scrivetelo nei commenti sulla mia pagina Facebook, e nel giro di un paio di giorni, appena avrò tutti i dettagli su campione e materiali, vi contatterò.

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…
