Cold Porcelain Cupcakes

While I was in Perú, I had the opportunity to take a short tutorial about how to work the cold porcelain and make a cupcake, here is the result, I absolutly love it!
 I was surprise how easy and fast is to work with this material
 You know that you can make your own cold porcelain at home
 Add some ornamets, in this case I add some colorful rounds to make appear like candy around the cupcake.
 And a Butterfly at the top
 After I finished, the teacher told me to just leave it for 24 hours, I was so nervious to ruin it with my hands on my way home, but it was easy to take the cupcake and as soon I arrived home I put it on top of a book and after a while it was so hard, I can´t believe it!
Perfect colors for a ceramic lovely cupcake, wait to see more ideas that I will make using this material, I just arrived home in Italy, unfortunetly I had to say goodbye to this cutie, because I was affraid to brake it if I brought home!

Happy Afternoon!

9 Travel Tips for Knitters and Crocheters

Next Tuesday me and my husband going on a trip to South América, we have a long trip and I found these tips absolutly helpful for any person like me who travel with knitting and crochet wips on the bag!
1. Consider Your Project
While over the river and through the woods may give you enough time to stitch up a whole sweater, it may not be practical to work on complicated colorwork or bulky blankets when you’re packing light. Projects that are worked in pieces like granny square afghans or single skein projects such as socks are great for travelling because they don’t take up a lot of room in your luggage.
2. Keep it Simple…or Not!
When deciding on the complexity of your project, each trip is different. Ask yourself a few questions about your travels: Will you be able to devote your attention to intricate cables or should you stick to a stockinette stitch project? Will you be bored working on a simple scarf or will it allow you to chat with family and friends? Do you want to bring two projects so you’re prepared for different situations?
3. Know What You Need
Now that you’ve picked your project, it’s time to prep. Do a gauge swatch in advance so you bring the right needles or hooks. Take time to ensure that you’ve got everything you need for your project because you won’t able to pop into a craft store if you’re boarding a trans-continental flight! Read over your pattern so that you understand all of the techniques involved. Be sure to pack all of the yarns and notions required to complete your work.
4. Leave the Good Stuff at Home
Even if you’re careful, things happen! Losing something you’ve worked hard on can be heartbreaking but it’s even worse if your favorite set of needles or antique scissors go astray as well. Your time and effort is irreplaceable but those handmade crochet hooks cost a pretty penny. Plan for the worst: Bring less expensive supplies and yarns, just in case you become separated.
5. Make a Travel-Sized Notions Case
Use an empty tin (like the ones those famously strong mints come in) to store notions. Fill it with a tape measure, tapestry needle, stitch markers, and whatever else your pattern calls for. This kit is a great size to fit in a small project bag or even your purse and everything is together in one place.
6. Dental Floss is the Traveler’s Best Friend!
A travel-sized dental floss can be incredibly handy on the go. The blade can be used to cut yarn and the floss can become an improvised stitch holder or even a stitch marker in a pinch!
7. Carry Extras
Back ups are key! It’s always a good idea to pack away an extra crochet hook or set of knitting needles just in case one goes on its own adventure. You won’t regret printing out a second copy of your pattern, either! If you like to keep your patterns on your smartphone or another electronic device, bring a printed version in case you run out of battery!
8. Knitters, Use Circular Knitting Needles
Circular knitting needles may not be your favorites but their flexibility makes them perfect for packing. You can use them the same way you’d knit with straight needles but you won’t bump your seatmate’s elbows. For projects knit in the round, the magic loop method can save you from bringing double pointed needles on your trip. Those double pointed sock needles love to run away!
9. Locate Your Nearest Local Yarn Shop
 If you’re somewhere unfamiliar, a local shop can give you a feel for the scene and the regulars are sure to have recommendations for places to visit in the area. Besides, it doesn’t matter where you are in the world, you can always connect with a knitter or crocheter at the yarn shop!

And last, remember to keep all your LiliaCraftParty on your documents section of the computer, this way you don´t need internet connection to open pdf files any time you need!

Happy Knitting!

Find Joy and Meaning on Every Day Life!......Knitting!

Knitting makes people happy, from the people who knit to those who receive knitted items, and those who see knitting in their surroundings. Consider the popularity of “yarn-bombing,” the beautiful graffiti that uses yarn to decorate public spaces, filling them with happiness-inducing warmth and colour. No one can resist smiling at the sight of a knitted bus or tree!
Even professionals are catching on. Stitchlinks is a UK-based group that’s developing a network of knitting therapy groups in hospitals, GP practices, schools, workplaces, and care facilities.
Therapeutic knitting is being formally acknowledged by leading clinicians and academics for  its benefits in mainstream healthcare.
Keep at it, all you knitters! Not only are you having fun, but you’re also knitting yourselves a happier, healthier life.
Happy Knitting!
