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

Multi color woven mat

On Vijayadashami day my sister gifted me a small weaving loom. Thanks to her , I simply used my left over yarns to weave this mat. This was my first attempt.After weaving I realised that I had to strictly follow two things.
a. Never start to weave from the edge. Always start from the middle as it will be easy to loop the extra yarns.
b. Leave at least a gap of 2 inches from the frame on both sides. So when we have finished weaving we will have sufficient yarn thread available for us to tie a knot or create a tassel.
I have used 6 colored yarns
