Indian Winter and Snug Things

My questioning mood has passed by, I can't think too much about things I don't understand.May be it's not required. So I'm just trying to dive into my sunny winter days again...with many pictures this time! 
Indian winter reminds me my native country's warm autumn... Cloudy sky, some trees' leaves gained the autumn colors . The tree in front of our house changes its attire according to the season, unlike other, green all year long.
We had another homely weekend. Indian cardamon tea and some tasty crackers are the best to keep warm in a cold house.
My husband got these socks cum shoes from his mum and can't spend his evenings without them now. Our heater is "on" too; we like the kind of light it gives.
Of course, Indian winter can't be spent without light and fragrances. Mmm, lemon grass!
The tree was established on Sunday. I'm planning to get some lights for it as well.  I bought that small Santa from my university's shop in Moscow, there are more of them at my parents' place. Now I have a piece of memories on my New Year tree..
And Ta-dah! The ripple baby blanket is ready. It took me quite a while to weave the ends. Baby boy was born on the 10th of December, so now we need to think of the option of delivering the blanket to his parents as they live in another city :) I know it needs to be altered and may be steam ironed.
More... some new yarn from the Indian brand Vardhman. Pretty colors, smooth thread, and I have a project in my mind to use it for. 
These were some moments of the past weekend. I'm grateful being able to have peaceful and snug time with my D. 
Have a great cozy day!

  6. Hi Anna. Lucky baby. The blanket looks lovely. Nice colour combination. The colours chosen for the new project also make a good combi. You may courier the blanket to the other city. Its quite reasonable. You only need to give a declaration that it has wool. Should not be a prob.The socks cum shoes look wow!
    The tree would look great with twinkling lights. You better arrange for that :)

    HAve a lovely day

  7. Hi Anna, Lovely blanket with such soft colours. I have some yarn which may become a ripple blanket soon. I am glad the Delhi winter and Christmas is reminding you of your home. Your aroma lamp is tempting me to get one for myself too. :) Can you tell me what is material for the sole of the socks, I am on the lookout for readymade soles to crochet some slippers. Waiting to see your next project with the new yarn.
    Love.
