Between a stilt walker mouse and a sailor walrus I get my head out of the clouds and think about something that fit with the reality, something simple, maybe an accessory for the winter I can make in a short time. That is how I designed this set of fingerless gloves and hat, called Walnut.

Crochet garments and accessories are not always spectacular and noteworthy as those made knitted. And I would love in my own small way, step by step, trying to dispel this myth. Even with a crochet hook we can make comfortable, beautiful and well designed garments. I want to try! I started  a few years ago with some hats and a cape (they are free patterns!). Last year I continued thanks to Crowdknitting and now, before starting new adventures, I proceed alone.

Actually I do not feel alone. You are here, reading my blog, and other friends by calls, comments and messages make me understand how they see the crochet world. And you, how do you see it?
Do you prefer other techniques for some specific reason? What would you like to see / do?

My point of view, from the inside, is certainly a bit distorted. I see many, but many, beautiful patterns, ideas that I would have liked to have and crochet items perfectly realized. I also see so many things that do not make even under torture. But the crochet is always overshadowed by the knitting world and I will fight for equal rights :D (I love both, I have nothing against knitting!)

However, it had to be a post to present this new pattern and became a speech on hook rights. Anyway Walnut is available on Ravelry, the pdf include the pattern to realize fingerless gloves and hat and until February 21 it’s 50% off!
