Baisaakh


Baisaakh 

Today is trtiya of  Baisaakh  after purnima on 27th April Baisaakh the 2nd month of  Hindu calender,,,,,,,,,, the lunisolar calendar governing the religious life of Hindus

Yes it is Baisaakh, a pious month to earn religion merits; indeed a month that enlightens the inner pace of truth for fair interaction with self.
Yes it is Baisaakh; it is a very special month to worship Lord Sri Hari Vishnu, the giver of success for both the worlds.
Yes it is Baisaakh; even a mild shower once in a month indicates very good rainy season.
Yes it a Baisaakh, most favorable month to counter the ill effects of Rahu through varying sacred practices, by the grace of lord Sri Hari Vishnu ill effects of Rahu suppressed to null and void.
It is not just a month but an opportunity to meet the fate at farewell of divine celebration.
May God Bless You ll!
Happy Day!

 Here is a beautiful pattern for Giraaf.





I have now completed 56 rows (at 313 stitches per row - that's a lot of Crocheting!) It now measures 32" in length (it is 80" wide) my last blog post update it was measuring a tile and a half, it has now grown past two tiles (plus I've added another 2 bands of colour since I took this photo on the weekend)
I am still LOVING the colours I chose for this blanket. I love it's ripply bright goodness as I look across it on the bed.  

Happy crocheting!

Something about crochet of my love

My daughter asked me to make for her in cotton                                                                   



HISTORY OF CROCHET
First off I have to say that my favorite crochet is Intarsia (charted) Crochet. I will be getting into this style later on in this series for any experienced crocheters.
Compared with knitting, crochet has a much shorter history, and is thought to have developed from lace-making. The origin is debatable, but research suggest that it became a pastime for high-born ladies in Europe in the 16th century. It was passed on by nuns, who were the main teachers of lace-making at that time.
Crochet was an imitation of lace-making because lace was very expensive and most could not afford it. The word “crochet” comes from the French word for hook.
It evolved from a form a needlework called tambouring, which is a cross between lace-making and crochet. It got its name because it was originally worked in a frame which resembled a tambourine. It looks like chain stitches(used in embroidery) and was used to make decorative flower motifs on muslin and other fabrics.
Once it was discovered that patterns of chain stitches could be made by joining them together without the need for a frame or fabric, lace-making developed into the art we know today as crochet, although at that time is was done with extremely tiny hooks and fine thread (sort of like what you would use to make doilies).
The first publication of crochet patterns was in the 1840′s, crochet became more popular and not only for the wealthy.
Mille Riego de la Branchardiere translated several bobbin  lace and needle lace designs into “Irish” crochet patterns for publication.
Irish Crochet is said to be the finest form of crochet. Exceedingly intricate and complicated patterns are worked with fine thread. Queen Victoria loved this form of crochet so much that she learned how to do it herself.


Happy crocheting!

Work in progress.......In Public, Hook trends in different countries


Work in progress.......In Public

I am with my mom during her treatment in ICU..I’m busy making pineapple square at the moment. This stuff is for my mom, the stuff of love, the stuff of sympathy, stuff that’s new. But for now, just to keep you intrigued, here’s some proofs


 Hook trends in different countries


Describing the hooks is not same in UK and Us . UK hooks are measured in millilmetres (mm) while US hooks are usually assigned a letter.   The hooks themselves aren't different, just the naming conventions.

There are plenty of online sources to help you work out what size hook you need, but I most often visit Wikipedia's page here. The chart below is taken from their page (I've removed the section about knitting needles). Red is UK/AUS/NZ, blue is US.

Millimeter range         Crochet hook size(letter)          Crochet hook size(numeric)
2.25 mm

2.75 mm
C2
3.25 mm
D3

E4

बहु उतारने की रस्म,Summer dress


बहु उतारने की रस्म



गाडी से उतरते वक्त बहु कुक सिलावा के डिब्बे को सासुजी को देकर पैर छुती है। नाल लपेटा हुआ पांच या सात पत्तो की पीपल की डाली, गेहूं के आटे को भेजाकर उसमें खड़ी करके लोटे के ऊपर रखकर बहु के सिर पर रखते हैं, पहले से दरवाजे मे चैक पुरकर पाटा बिछाकर रखें, बेटा-बहू को उस पर खड़ा करें। बेटा की माँ बेटा-बहू को मिनती है। वार फेर करके पाटा से उतारकर अन्दर ले जाते हैं घर में बहू पहले दायां पांव अन्दर रखती है कोई भी सात थालियों को लाईन से रखते हैं थाली में कुछ मिठाई रखनी होती है। फिर बेटा कटार से उस थाली को सरकाता जाता है और बहु उठाकर इकट्ठा करती जाती है। इकट्ठी करते वक्त आवाज नहीं होनी चाहिये। इकट्ठा करके सासु को देकर पैर पड़ती है फिर बेटा-बहु को थापा के आगे ले जाकर धोक दिलाते हैं ।

फिर सबसे पहले सास घी का दिया जला कर बहु का मुँह देखती है। और बहु को मुँह दिखाई देती है, काजल घालने वाली एक परात में कच्चा दूध, मुंग, चावल, दूब, सुपारी, कोडी, छलला, पैसा, हल्दी की गांठ डालकर बेटा-बहु को जुआ-कंगना खिलाती हैं। सातवीं बार वर को जिताते हैं और चाँदी का छल्ला बेटा बहु को पहना देता है। बेटा बहु एक दूसरे का कांगन डोरा खोलते हैं, दूल्हे को एक हाथ से खोलने की और दूल्हन को दोनों हाथों से खोलने की इजाजत होती है। फिर आपस में एक दूसरे की मुट्ठी खोलते हैं। फिर सारा सामान खोला हुआ बेटा बहु के सिर पर रख देता है। फिर बहु का सात सुहागन मुँह बिटालती हैं इस रस्म को गोत कुंडाला बोलते हैं। कई लोगों के यहां सास-बहू आपस में एक प्लेट में घी-खीचड़ी खाती हैं (कहा जाता है सास-बहू घी खीचड़ी हो गई अर्थात् दोनों के मन मिल गए)।

Of being absent for a long.........

  
As of late I have been neglecting my blog due to problems in my stomach .Also have been busy and distracted by my mother's recent health issues and it has been hard to "pull away".
Yes! From last few months I am suffering with stomach problem …and I am at a loss to know how to explain this problem I was  discussing with my mother that I feel the geouse ball floating like I felt during my pregnancy……thanks to internet I got the point in this problem is named as Bloating   in stomach
And also 
Gastro paresis
Gastro paresis is a disorder affecting the nerves and muscles of the stomach, resulting in a paralyzed stomach that cannot perform its normal function. Normally, your stomach contracts slowly to squeeze solid food into small particles, which are then pushed into the small bowel. With gastro paresis, food is not moved into the small bowel and remains in the stomach for much longer than usual. When food lingers too long in the stomach, problems such as bacterial overgrowth can develop in the small bowel. Also, the food can harden into solid masses called bezoars that may cause nausea, vomiting and an obstruction in the stomach.
Found some remedy points Here....Here

A few studies suggest that peppermint tea, ginger, pineapple, parsley, and yogurts containing probiotics ("good" bacteria) may help reduce bloating.
"These are safe foods that are good for you when used appropriately, so why not try them and see if they help you de-bloat?" Blatner says.
Any how 
I am on Ayurveda for treatment 





 all the above powders mixed  in one...1/2 a tsp in the morning and evening......



the above pictured syrups twice a day...
and the condition of my digestive process is improving

Happy Day!

Coconut Hot Oil Treatment



Things you'll need:
  • Coconut milk
  • Oil burner wax candle
  • Cotton balls



Source

Directions: Pour the coconut milk into the oil burner and heat until you see the oil separate. Put a cotton ball into the mixture until it soaks the liquid and then slowly apply on to your scalp. I love the sensation of heat on my skin. It would be great if you had someone do a head massage while applying the heated coco oil/milk into your scalp. Leave on your hair and cover it with a plastic shower cap with the option of sleeping in and washing of the next day.

*CAUTION: This can be extremely hot so be very careful with your fingers and scalp.

*You could also probably use VCO (virgin coconut oil) but I like the fact that you can use freshly squeezed coconut milk for real cheap from your local market. P25-P35 for a whole bag which can make a few cups.

Enjoy conditioned  locks, ladies ;)
