Crochetkari: Rainy Days

Rainy Days

The rain gods have finally relented and decided to shower their blessings on us. Yes, it has been raining for the past couple of days. The trees are looking greener, the heady scent of wet earth is wafting through the air and even the air is feeling cleaner. The fact that we did not have power for the better part of the day yesterday, may be a side effect. But given the blessed relief from the unbearable heat, the rains are always welcome.

My post for yesterday was to be WIPs Wednesday, a round up of all incomplete projects in my WIP basket. But no power = no post :( It may not have made good reading but it was more for updating myself. Maybe some other time.

Since I was forced to stay indoors due to the wet weather, I decided to try my hand at a thread pattern. Ever since I started working with yarn, I find it difficult to work with thread. But I wanted to have a crack at this beautiful heart bookmark.

So here it is:

Now isn't that a beautiful heart?

The shaded thread gives it a lovely look.

Here it is duly tasseled, ready to be sent. Where? To my friend Vrushali, who is also my physiotherapist. She is the first good friend I made after shifting to Ahmedabad. She is excellent as a therapist and as a person too. She is never seen without a book in hand, so I was sure she would like a bookmark.

Vrushali is so thrilled with the bookmark that she has now decided to learn to crochet. She is hoping to have a small gift ready for her sister who is going to deliver next month. I hope so too.

 Do you like this bookmark? I hope to make a few more soon in many different colours.

Bye for now.


  1. It is very nice!!!
    I love the color you used..It has been raining here in Louisiana a lot for the past few days and I am really enjoying it only because it has seem to cool things off a bit..very hot here!

  2. How lovely! I like the color a lot! Hi from Bear Rabbit Bear Crafts. Feel free to stop by anytime (Just in case you didn't know- I have a Sharp Crochet Hook giveaway and another prize pack giveaway going on now if you're interested!!)

  3. A very pretty book mark and so kind of you to give it to your friend!

  4. This is so pretty! I have scoured the internet for heart bookmark patterns and this is one of the prettiest I have seen by far. Could you share where you found the pattern, please? I would appreciate it so much.

  5. Gorgeous. Where can I find the pattern for this. Would love to make one.

    1. Hi Vicki, I will have to hunt for the pattern as I made it a long time ago. If I find the pattern I will get back to you. Have a nice day.
