Indigo Baby Set !!!

Hello All,

Hope everyone is doing good. I know.. its a very long long time i posted something. Its not that i was busy with the baby.. many things changed in the past few months that didn't allow me to sit with my laptop and type something.

I recently moved to London as my hubby is deputed here for some months. I am staying at home now with baby and actually getting lot of time to crochet. I have ordered some wonderful yarns from deramores and waiting for them to arrive. 

Weather is awesome here that its not too cold nor hot. Perfect to roam around and visit places but its again a challenge to do that with baby. The bonnets and beanies i made for baby are very useful when taking him for a stroll. 

I made this cardi and socks a long back.. that they actually became smaller for my baby now :)

The little cardigan pattern is from HERE.. but i have made enough changes to accommodate the thread size.

And these beautiful bullet buttons are from Pradhan Embroidery Stores Mumbai.. which i ordered few months ago.

I have also places an order on ebay uk for some colorful crochet hooks of all sizes in a beautiful case. Eagerly waiting for it to arrive to start my hooking.

I actually loved the way the socks turned out.. very cosy and looked neat..

Thats it for now and hope i will make new projects here and post them soon.

With Love,

Yellow Baby Set !!!

Hello Everyone !

Hope all is well with everyone. Finally i got some time to post the baby crochet stuff.. 
After searching the net for hell lot of times, i shortlisted many baby patterns to crochet. And finally arrived at three wonderful links for the cardi, hat and sock pattern.

And here is my result.. very happy with it.. cant wait to put it on my newborn.  I think the sizes are a little big for a newborn but yeah we know how fast babies grow.  

I used the yarn i ordered from Pony craft store, its Hosgeldin which is originally from Turkey. I love this yarn for its softness and its wonderful to work with. But the only bad part is its indeed costly. 

This cardi pattern is from here.

Sock pattern is from HERE .. wonderfully explained.

SO happy to show you this sweater that i made for my new born. He is very comfortable in it.. !

See you soon with next post hopefully!
Take care n happy hooking

It's a BOY !!!!!!!!!!!

Hello Everyone !!

I am very glad to share the happiest moment of my life that my prince has arrived on Friday Nov 8th.

Though it was a painful labor which started with a normal delivery process it ended up with an emergency C- section as his head got stuck. But thank God my baby is safe in our hands now.

Im really busy with him and not sure how often i would touch my hook.. though i would visit your lovely works now and then.

Take care..

With Love,

Baby Sweater !!!

Hello Everyone.. 

Its festival time in India and a very happy Navaratri to all. My big day is nearing and really scared about it. Ahh im already getting nightmares on it. Just 15 - 20 more days to go for the new one to arrive and cant wait. Just trying to keep myself busy by crocheting baby stuff. 

I had this wonderful Stylecraft Aran yarn ordered from Deramores which i had bought earlier without any specific plans. But now used it to make this cute baby sweater set. 

This is made from a beautiful raspberry color Stylecraft Aran yarn. Tried to capture the exact color but they have not turned out great though. The sweater pattern is from HERE  and she has given an incredible explanation on how to make the arm holes too. This is the first wearable crochet i tried for baby apart from beanies. It turned out big as the Aran yarn was thicker.  The size is not for a newborn but anyways babies grow quite fast.. so i expect to use it till 6 months or so. 

And yeah the buttons that were brought from Pradhan Stores Mumbai.. And mixed some blue foor two rows as single color was looking too plain.

And the wonderful sock pattern is from HERE . Just follow the instructions blindly and you will end up with this cuties.. Initially it was confusing as i didn't do the stitch counts properly but once the counts are perfect the result is perfect too. The only disadvantage of this pattern is that you got to sew at the heel part which i don't like. Otherwise its an easy and quick pattern. 

The beanie pattern with ear flap is from HERE . By the way we can get hell lot of hat patterns from there.

So thats it for now.. And more baby stuff to come in the following days.

Happpy Hooking !!

Cute Buttons !!!

Hello Everyone!!

Hope everyone is doing good.. and busy with their yarns and hooks. I did some shopping.. actually first time from the famous Pradhan Embroidery stores, Mumbai. I have heard a lot about that shop and lot of reviews and seen many of the blog friends buying stuff from them. Their facebook posts on the cute buttons would inspire anyone to buy them.

I was indeed in need of cute buttons for all the baby stuff i started crocheting.. and i could not really get good ones around any shops here. And moreover being in 9th month i am unable to roam around and search for them. So yay.. i ordered so many of them from Pradhan and here you go....

Pink Buttons
Green Buttons

Blue Buttons

White Buttons

Cream Buttons

Yellow Buttons
These are my favourites and already started using them.. :)

Thats it for now.. and actually i am very busy in completing some baby stuff and buttoning them so that i can post them soon :)

Happy hooking!!
With Love,

Irish Rose Doily !!!

Hello Everyone!!

Today i am on cloud nine!! After 5 long months i have completed this rose doily finally. Really happy with the outcome. The roses were done and they were sleeping for a good amount of time. And one fine day i woke them up and attached them to the center piece. Ahh.. and then again they were resting for days..  i actually made some mistakes when tried the first leaf and then as im not happy with the outcome of it lost the interest to do the other leaves. 

But finally the time has come for the roses to come alive on the blog. A couple of days back tried again with the leaf and voila it came out perfect! And then no more procastinating.. all the remaining 9 leaves were also done and attached.

Now i am feeling i have to make more of these.. in different colors.. may be white, yellow or orange.. !!

Tried to take in many different backgrounds.. White, then yellow.. but nothing can replace a perfect black background.

I was first inspired by the rose doily by Sangeetha from Crochetkari. It was perfect and i could not take my eyes off. Then came across this blue roses from DIAPER MUM   . And now i have my own bunch or roses !!! :) :)

The pattern is from HERE.. crisp and clearr..  I used Anchor Knitting Cotton thread and size 1.6 mm hook. Could have used a little bigger than this. probably 2 mm but i lost it somewhere :(

And the best part is i am on my maternity leaves and enjoying/utilizing plenty of time in crocheting !  Thats where i am actually digging out the pending and WIPs and trying to completing it. Not sure whats next.. There are a couple more WIPs waiting for the ordered yarns to arrive to complete them. But only 8 more weeks to go for the baby to arrive and i am sure i wont care to reach my hook after that. :)
 So meet you all with those in the next post. 
Happy hooking and take care. 

With Love,

Pink Baby Bonnet !!!

Hello People!!

Hope everyone is fine!! I did miss this beautiful blog world for a while due to many reasons. And I am very happy to inform everyone there that im expecting baby in the end of October and that is the most important reason that kept me busy all these days (oops.. actually months) and i could not make any proper posts though i have many projects started and incomplete.. and a few completed. 

Motherhood is indeed a blessing and i am so happy for being one who is blessed. Just a few weeks left and i am eagerly waiting for the arrival for the new one. I have started the preparations already with few crochet works for him/her. Ahhhhh.. the fact that i am unaware that its a boy or girl makes it difficult to chose the yarn color :) Either it should be so pinkish or  bluish or greyish.. anyway i have chosen many wonderful patterns and they are waiting in queue to be made after the arrival of my prince / princess :)

Still so curious and could not wait for 10 more weeks, i made a cute bonnet in pink..  it looks really so girlish i know.. it is a very different and incredible feeling that couldnt be explained when i finished this bonnet.. i was so happy that i made something for him /her. :)

The pattern is from HERE

Bonnets are actually out of fashion and its very hard to find good patterns for bonnets except in some vintage links. There are hell lot of hat and beanie patterns but still bonnets are very cute when worn.


And thats not it.. i am also making few other bonnets in different patterns and sizes as i am not very sure which one would fit a newborn. I am also trying my hands on a baby cardigan and im so excited the way they are all turning out!!

Meet you all with all those completed baby projects soon. Take care and happy hooking!!

With Love,
