Knitting cap and some brazilian embroidery practice


 Knitted a cap . It is knitted sideways. It is to be stitched .
 Raised cup stitch is worked in one or two rows.cast on stitch is worked with a bead in the Centre  but I worked it wrong in placement and it came out of some weird shape
Here raised cup stitch is done with some heavier thread of shaded orange color and also some kamal kadai

Gloves fingerless

 Tried knitting fingerless gloves for my daughter.  After some trial it came out ok. It was very tiresome knitting fingers on dpn though.

Aari work

 Was practising aari work with single strand of silk thread. It was very fine and it took a lot of time to embroider a leaf .tht read also got entangled with hook and got fuzzy.
But needle painting with tambour needle on other blogs look so intimidating that I want to try it again and again.  For that fine work one may have to have the proper frame and needle also to achieve that so fisticuffs. Better luck next time .may be with two strands.

Kutchwork pillow cover


 Have added two small kutch work buttas to the pillow cover but still looking not good enough. I Think Have To Add Some morebuttas To It.
Close up of the butta but the colour has not come out well in the picture .I have also bought thread for working kutchwork on the single bed sheet of this pillow cover.  Lot of kutchwork to do .main problem is design transfer. Somehow all the squares come out to be of different sizes.
