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

Pongal Greetings

Pongal Greetings to one and all. At home also we had a small pongal.In this part of the world in Tamilnadu we call it as the harvest festival and lasts for 4 days , 1 st it is Bogi, 2nd day it is Surya pongal, 3 rd day it is Mattu pongal and 4 th day it is Ullavar or Trivalluvar day.
Here are some picture
Fresh turmeric is tied to the pot.as the turmeric plant was not sufficient enough , I used a thread to tie the turmeric to the pot.


Milk is boiling


When the milk boils it will over flow and this is considered very auspicious

and finally the pongal - it is a sweet dish made of rice,milk and jaggery. cardamom is added for fragnance.cashewnuts and raisins are fried in ghee and added to this
