The Autumn arrived and I am so glad to get back to my hooks and needles. As some of you know I had an issue with my computer. I discovered it when many of my contacts received an email from me with a link with virus or spam, I don’t know what it was. But it was so embarrassing. The worst part was when I began to receive almost rude emails that I should stop spamming and so on… I could understand those people, nobody likes to receive such things… but I was also a victim, and at that moment I felt even worse… I apologize to all of you who received such email and now I believe it is fixed and will not happen again. In any case everyone should know, if you receive an email, even from the person you know, with just a link – don’t open it! 
Another thing I wanted to mention is – my little girl turned 1! I can’t believe! It was the fastest year of my life! 🙂   
And at the end of this long post 🙂 I wanted to share some new designs I posted last week: 
first one is a Pom-Pom Headband! It is easy to make and I am sure your children will have a lot of fun to wear it when it get’s colder! Pattern available here!
Another one is my third knitting pattern – Cocoon Snood! I always wanted to make one for myself. I finally made it and thought maybe you will like it too. The pattern is available here!
I also renewed photos of my Ladies Cowl Poncho! It is still quite hot here in Italy, but I can’t wait to wear it again! It is so cozy! Pattern is here!
Many other patterns coming soon! 🙂

I am an author and recently my first book "Super Cute crochet for Little Feet" was released in UK, Germany, France, Estonia an other countries! US version is coming out in March.

  1. Your cocoon snood is absolutely gorgeous. Love that texture!

    Sorry to hear about your tech problems. At this point I typically assume that if I get anything spammy from folks I know then it's probably a hacking problem.

  2. Oh, I got one of those spam emails from you, but I knew it was spam and just deleted it. This happens to so many people, I never would consider it your fault. I LOVE LOVE LOVE your lovely crochet patterns : ). You have a beautiful family, and they are so blessed to have you making all those wonderful things for them.

  3. Thank you ladies! :-))) This happened to me for the first time and I was totally confused. I even didn't know it happened. I am glad that someone wrote me that I am spamming 🙂 and I could fix it. But in general we should all understand that the owner of the email is not always responsible for these things.
