new knitting projects

In the past days the pain in my tendons has eased a lot so I started a couple of projects, and one of them is quite ambitious: the revontuli shawl!

Here is a shot of my work in progress:

then I started a pair of RPM socks but as they progressed they really wanted to become a pair of gloves could I say no?
so here's the right one...and I still have to decide they will be mittens, fingerless mittens or gloves :)

oh, and I also finished that luscious alpaca crocheted scarf:

Let's start this new adventure! I have had many blogs in the past, and a couple of them had a very long life and an important role in my now I decided to start a new blog about these great hobbies that I got into about one year ago and totally changed my life :) They made (and still make) me feel creative and accomplished...seeing a ball of yarn slowly turn into a wearable object is simply wonderful and somehow cathartic :)))So, what's on my needles now? I just finished a My so called scarf made in Manos del Uruguay yarn and I truly adore it, I have been using it daily and it works well in the chilly air we are having in Rome :)

I am also crocheting something:it's an Off the grid scarf made in handspun alpaca. That yarn is the softest thing I have ever worked with!

I am usually a lot more productive but I have a very very bad tendonitis going from the tip of my pinky finger all along my arm ending on my back, in the middle of my shoulderblades...believe me that's painful! I am having injections of painkillers\antiinflammatories and the pain is very slowly these days I am taking it very very easy and knitting\crocheting as little as possible.Oh, my ravelry name is Serenely ...feel free to add me as a friend!
