Happy Monday everyone!
How are you all doing? Hope you all had a great weekend, mine was really good, my best friend came to visit me and stayed with us, we went to see our good ol' college mates n friends together, Oh!! lovely time ..It was great to meet class mates,rewinding all those beautiful times..short but sweet!!
Coming back to my crafty crochet world, I made a table runner for our coffee table last week.I loved the pattern, it cannot be simpler than this and I wanted to make with single colour. but there was not enough yarn.I've already decided not to order/buy anything unless I use half of my humongous stash!(atleast I think so).Last year, I stashed up a lot and I feel guilty when I see it. yes, I am always tempted to buy when I see a nice pattern, but nooo, I am determined.
Crafty Dozen group in Ravelry. I have some more plans for the 'along', which are also very easy things,mainly spring-Easter theme. Lets see whether I can make it on time.So much to do and so little time..

...for my little miss beautiful. These are the first things I made for her,to keep her warm.There is a blanket, booties,mitten and beanie.
I tried several edging for this but went to my favourite scallops finally, and also gave a provision for ribbon. There was plenty of yarn left, so I made booties, mitten and a beanie too. Booties and beanie are used quite often, but we've never used mittens. And I love the booties pattern very much, the name of this pattern is 'Best Ever booties' and I must say its an apt name. I made some more booties with other colours with this pattern, its super easy!Neat Ripple Pattern by Lucy. And now I am making that for a friend's baby and its almost done, all I need to do is a lil bit of steaming, all about tht in next post!
Blanket Pattern: Snapdragon
Size : 34" x 32" inches
Booties Pattern:Best Ever Booties
Beanie and Mittens Pattern: Baby Ripple Hat
Yarn: Vardhman Babysoft
So till next time

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
