For a cutie

Another quick project. This one for a little girl

I just love this pink, Vardhman baby soft, super soft yarn and so light. I am still thinking to make one more item to go with it, but can’t decide on a hat or booties.

My recent fo (finished object) is the shrug for my sil. No I didn’t mend the last one but though of quickly making another one. All because of the steaking being alien technique for me.. never tried.. know it only in theory. I may get the nerves to try it but surely not now.
Coming back to the fo, this was my sil’s choice, as she wanted a full sleeved shrug.

I am super happy the way it has turned. I have tried knitting shrug before but I was never happy with the results and so the projects never got completed. Maybe because I never wore them I was not sure about their drape and fitting. I think this project gave me a bit of idea of a shrug.
Other than this I am working on some other projects.. here is a sneak peek on one of them

an outing

We went on a picnic on last Saturday.  The picnic was organised by my DH’s company for the employers and family at Prakrithi resort  Bangalore.

Achu decided to swing instead of jumping in the bouncy.  DSC00857and so did Aku
