Crochet and knitting always fascinated me since my childhood, especially because the place where I grew up, which is the western part of India – Gujarat … ladies would not go out from their houses without a knitting or crochet needle and yarn. ( The place has extreme weather conditions so winters would be extremely cold)
I would always wonder, how these ladies managed to concentrate on their knitting while busy talking with each other. Whatever, but their end results would be beautiful sweaters and mufflers….
After all these years, recently I got to see my dear friend Nima who is a crochet expert coming up with lovely creations and that tiny little flame inside me became a burning desire to learn this craft. Initially I started with a small coaster which I had blogged long back . Then there was a break on my crochet, since I had so many other things going on and now finally I have started trying my hands on it again.
Once I got a hang of it, I realized that this the best craft that could be done watching one of your favourite TV programs. And this was exactly what those ladies were doing those times, Instead of watching TV they would chat with each other doing crochet or knitting. What a productive way to leisure……
One last look at my doily….
