Lace edging

Good morning,my dear friends!

It is already ten minutes that I’m struggling to write something clever but it seems that this will not happen this morning…. well,it doesn’t matter much, better if I show you the photos of my lace edging I crocheted and sewed on a dish towel…. my second Xmas gift is stored :)

What do you think about my first embellished dish towel? I really would like to know your opinion <3 I have to be honest and say that, at first, I didn’t find this combination fitting but once finished I fell in love with its domestic look…. now I have to say you bye and run out to the yarn store! My Mum in law asked me to purchase some yarn for her and,of course, I’m looking foward to go shopping :D :D :D :D :D

Knitting and crochet

Hello,my friends!

It’s quite late, around 11:00 p.m, but I couldn’t wait till tomorrow to show you what I have done today……… well,spending time alone means a lot of craft for me :) I just can’t stay without doing nothing…… so,let’s begin with the dark side of craft…. :)

The front side of Rossana’s tank top is ready… :) Phew,what an exhausting work!Well,it was me who wanted to finish it quickly so I started the front side on Wednesday and finished it today, around 5:00 p.m…. yeah, not bad…. I’m Wonder woman… :)

After all that black yarn and after have saw my needles smoke like an ancient steam locomotive, it was high time for some rest and a play with bright colours….

I crocheted this small doily during the evening and am satisfied how it turned out.I love its gipsy junk guise …. The yarn is perfect!I purchased it from the nice lady who’s behind this blog (ciao Katia :) ) and who was sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo kind to expose some of my items on her market stall.

That’s it for tonight,my dears,time to sleep….

Knitting in public

Hello,my friends!

Today I knitted in public for the first time ever :) It was quite nice and am happy I did it.I’m spending this weekend alone so I wanted to do something I usually do not and take advantage of the rare sunny days of this mad summer…. The location is my favourite one, the already known Parco Ducale :) I managed to find the official website,it was really about time :)

Enjoy the photos!

Colours

Before starting to craft I’d like to share with you these photos taken on my kitchen table which,as you have already learnt, is an all purposes one….

I’ve found some chestnuts during my early morning walk in Parco Ducale and brought them home…. yeah,autumn is here….and I felt well while preparing the crochet stuff I need today…. I know,already seen crafty goodies but I really do hope that these colours gently encourage you to create and craft as they do with me….

Second sock sample

Hello,my dear friends!

It had taken me a while but I have just finished off my second sock sample and absolutely had to publish its photos….

SAM_6692

Do you see any difference between the two socks…..?

I fell in love with a pattern found on Raverly and had spent some time trying to figure out how to adjust it for the numbers of stitches I cast on.Then I had tried to find the best directions for heel,foot and toe shaping and followed those found here, here and here. Well,I have still so much to learn but now I feel like to start knitting socks for me with the yarn I purchased some days ago………that’s why I say you bye,I’m off to cast on my stitches…

Warm hugs to all of you,beautiful people!!! <3 <3 <3

PS:I forgot to tell you that the second sample is shaped for my Big man’s paw…. :) :) :) <3 <3 <3

Shopping

It’s true,absolutely….

…every single time I go out and spend some time downtown I should be flogged….that because I always buy something that it’s not necessary….. but that makes me drool like a hungry doggie….

SAM_6674

….yarn,needles,round stitch markers,scissors….a pair of beautiful embroidery scissors….as I saw them I forgot all my annoyances….

SAM_6680

SAM_6687

…. if you were in my shoes,what would you do?Would you leave this goodie in the store……?Come on,honestly….. (I need to hear that I’ve done the right thing indeed…..)……

….and the yarn…..oh the yarn………….

SAM_6678

….I still have my second sock sample unfinished but I couldn’t resist to this skein…. This is for me personally….. I’d like to make myself a pair of socks to wear in house and which will make me feel at ease,especially now that I’m spending my time alone….think that today’s shopping was a kind of solace for the solitary period I’ve started to face this very week…. at least i didn’t throw my money away but purchased some nice and cozy stuff… :D
