I so wish I had better Internet, it is not at all proper and blogging is kind of difficult. So, hows your week going? Mine going well, crafty and otherwise.Its already March and I really have no idea how time's going(pss: last year this time I was counting every second, minute to pass,I felt the day was longer than 24hrs :( ), I'm happy I get time for my hobbies now. I was totally away from anything related to crafts this year until mid Feb,it was more of cleaning,unpacking, organising whenever my little girl allowed.Now home is almost set,some more things are to be done, but it can wait. I really didnt know where to start and my craft room still is a mess.
Yarn: Vardhman Double Colour (DK/8ply)
If you are on my facebook page, the pic may look a little familiar.I posted this pic over an year ago there when I was crocheting this stole. Its silk yarn from SilkIndian, I bought it when I joined the Ravelry Bangalore Brigade meet organised at the their store. I was not sure whether I use it or not , so bought only 2 hanks,just for the sake tht I went there and I must say I regretted that decision later. The yarn is super cool and its perfect for gifting.
I started making a stole afterwards,the yarn is too smooth and crochet was so fast and again the pattern also an easy one.And after crocheting, it rested in my cupboard for an year to get it blocked. I thought the silk also had to go under steam for blocking and really did not want to go through all those physical stress then. Recently I saw a post on blocking silk, it looked so easy, and here my stole blocked,lace opened and ready to use( yeah!I already started using it..)
Pattern: Ziggy Lace Scarf
Yarn: SilkIndian Aleena Silk of Heaven (Fingering / 4 ply)
Finished Size : 75 x 4.5 inches
So, thats two things I made for myself, totally selfish me-me, after all, I see most of my crafts are going as gifts n' I badly need something for myself to show off. But yes, I am making a lot of gifts now, mostly for the little people who already landed safely and to those who are waiting for safe landing..
Till next time
