Happy Onam

Hey all,
 Happy Onam to all malayalees !!
 Today we Keralites celebrate Onam , our biggest festival in Kerala. Growing up I have so many good memories of this festival which all starts after our term exams in school finishes. Cousins, games, swing, sadya and the best part - making pookalam. My mom never allowed to pluck flowers from her garden except for Onam (that too she had reservations). We make a small pookalam with flowers and leaves, there will be sadya which we eat on banana leaf sitting on floor. This Onam , as Im on rest with my sprained leg , there wont be much celebration.

 I made this doily inspired by the pookalam we make during Onam. Thats the favourite thing of mine for this festival, I loved making this one. This is an easy and small pattern. I am in love with these colours now.

Project Details:
Pattern: Winter's breath Doily
Yarn : Anchor Mercerised Cotton size 20
Hook: 1.5mm steel hook
Size :9" 

So wishing everyone a very happy and fun Onam, enjoy!!
till next time
