Namaskaram - salutations

Namaskaram - salutations I dedicate my blog to the enormous art lovers across the globe I love knitting so much that I have started a blog for knitting.Knitting is a job that I will like to go on.Through knitting I breathe life into many people's life. It is knitting time. When I want to relax I do it with knitting. I am a knitting buff.I love to do knitting on various topics. There is no way that you can stop me doing knitting.I am born with a flare for knitting.My face brightens once I touch the knitting needs.The electronic media has helped knitting to travel across the world.Every stitch made will talk about how knitting has influenced people.I have done some and would like to share it with you. Some patterns have been taken from free knitting sites. Some designs have been created by me. Many a times I have modified the patterns to suite my requirements. Finally I can say that I breathe knitting, I talk knitting, I walk knitting - a total knitaholic

Thank You

I had never heard of this technique. Its a beautiful piece you've created, and I even like the slight curling too!

Thanks Anna for drpping to post your appreciation.I realised that the curls are the very characteristic feature of knitting.

Thanks Sonia for your appreciative words. I picked by the wire that are used for flowers from Raja Stores.

It looks very pretty :)

To avoid the curling, you could add a garter stitch border around the knit fabric - stockinette always curls but adding 4 stitches each side in garter stitch can stop that.

Oh great, you do so many innovative things with knitting. I can't knit. I have a pair of knitting needles though, a gift from my friend who didn't know the difference between knitting and crocheting. I should try learning to knit with it.

Thank You for dropping by my blog dear. The wooden dinosaur skeleton is not from ice cream sticks but made by assembling a wooden puzzle set which is available in India[ the set is quite cheap at 35 rupees]

Thanks Pinkundine for your suggestions. Noted the point. I follow this when I am doing a kerchief or dishcloth

nityakalyani said...
