Blocking Crochet Project

Good evening.

Often when you start a new crochet project, you think about blocking. Or not?

If you’re a beginner the blocking part it’s an optional, but it isn’t.

It i a very important part. Think about making a sweater: when you have all the part and the only thing you have in your mind is to view your project finished.

Yes, but make the blocking and your project will result more beautiful and accurate.

Home Fitness: Ripped by Jillian Michaels

Buona sera.

Oggi vi volevo parlare di un altro programma di Jillian Michaels: Ripped in 30.

Anche questo dura 30 giorni, e per tutto il resto seguite il video.

Qui trovate la mia esperienza con le foto e i centimetri persi.


Penny Laine – Crochet Scarf

Good morning.

Did you know that I’m a Beatles fan. Ok, this is only the beginning.

I love the foreign languages. I also like to play with different language at the same time.

And one of the result it’s the pattern’s name: Penny Laine. (“Penny Lane“, a famous Beatles song; “laine” wool in French).


This is a pattern for a tender and soft scarf. Made with a merino wool (in particular the Mondial Merino Fine) in beige.

You can easily adapt the pattern, by adding rows and make it longer.

Il Conto Vendita

Buon pomeriggio.

Finalmente sono riuscita a caricare il video in cui vi parlo del conto vendita.

Un contratto adatto per chi non ha ancora partita iva e vuol vedere sul territorio i propri prodotti. Un vantaggio anche per i negozianti in quanto possono esporre sempre delle creazioni diverse e magari richiederle all’artigiano.

Ma vediamo nel dettaglio di che cosa si tratta:


London, Day 1

Good morning.

If you follow me on Facebook, surely you know that I spent a week in London.

This was my second time for me, but I liked to visit  a lot of museums.

So, in this post I explain you how we plan the flight, home, tube tickets.

First of all we purchase a lot of things by internet before to leave (like the house) using Paypal.

Few months before to leave (12/1) we bought the flight. The cheapest company was RyanAir.


So Turin-London!

The sun was shining and …. in Stansted …. well the sun was playing hide and seek.


After all the airport check, a little step for lunch. ;)

Then we went to take the London Pass(es). (I write with We because we were in 3).

From the website we bought the passes and choose to take them in the shop.


We bought the 6 days pass, which allow you to visit London for 6 days. Also they give you a guide: this was the Bible for us. Little, complete, with all the info that you’ll need (phone, e-mail, timetable) and the list of the place covered with the pass.

So you purchase the pass then you haven’t to buy anything else to entry and visit. That’s amazing! No queue, just think about the tour that you want to make and check the tube station.

So I really suggest to use this kind of method. Follow the link and discover all you can make with this pass.


Important: if you don’t use the pass, came back and they refound you. ;)

In the same office we take the Oyster card (to travel with public service in London), but we charge on the travel card (more cheap for us) that covers 3 zones.

After we had to take the keys of the appartement. So direction Jubilee line  and Dollis Hill.

I define the appartement a “studio”: entry with beds, kitchen and a little bath. This was ok for us, during the day out and just the evening for the dinner and to sleep.

Wi-fi only for us and really strong, TV, … happy to had chosen the right. (this take to us 2 months).

And for the first day that’s ok!
