Sunflower mobile cozy

Hello, my lovely friends. I hope you had a great week. A big Thank you to all my dear friends for your kind words and best wishes for my surgery.

Let me start by welcoming our new friends;
Tracy from CrochetHappy
Nityakalyani from Nityas Knits Quoin
Rosa La maida  from Vaire La Tejedora 
Elisabeth from Elizy Art
and Suma

In my last post I promised to show you the small project I made for my MIL. Well. here it is, a sunflower cozy for her mobile phone.

A cute little sunflower.

I have added a button at the back so that the phone does not slip out even though the cozy is a snug fit. I hope my MIL is using it in Mumbai.

I am certainly not looking forward to the surgery, but the slight pain and tenderness in my abdomen is making me wish it happens fast.

I have no idea when I will be posting next. So until then, take care, have fun and happy hooking. I will be looking forward to visiting you as soon as I am back from the hospital.

Lots of love xxx

Knitty gritty

Hi friends, How are you? Once again,I am posting after a long break. Feeling a bit under the weather, listless and also a little uneasy. But that did not stop me from visiting all of you.....even if sometimes I did not leave any comments.

Finally decided to go for a check up. The diagnosis is a complex cyst on my left ovary. Surgery is the only option and I may be getting admitted to hospital next week. This is not the first surgery I am having but that does not stop me from being a little scared. So wish me luck.

On the crafty side I did actually manage to finish the knitted  scarf for my husband. 

I added a fringe just for fun. You can see the different colors in the yarn, in the fringe.

I really like the texture produced by the pattern.

Now that my knitted project is complete I am thinking maybe I should knit a little more. But I am slow knitter and that is not very encouraging.

The best part about this project is that my son and my hubby are now debating about who actually "deserves" this scarf and I am glad that both of them have liked it.

My head is buzzing with lot of new project ideas. But I think they will have to wait till I am back home from the hospital.

I had planned to make different rangolis to share with you. But I finally ended up making only one! The rest of the time I was busy with eating out and watching newly released movies.   :)
So anyway here is the only rangoli I made this Diwali.

This is a very small rangoli I made on the first day hoping to make a bigger one later. But of course that did not happen!

Here is my rangoli at night with the earthen lamps I showed you in my last post.

Isn't that a pretty sight!

Rangoli powder in lovely colours.

Well, that is all for now. Next time I will show you the small item I crocheted for my MIL before she left for Mumbai.

Take care,
Love xxx
