The Knitting Rut

Around a month ago, I wrote about suffering from a condition I called “The COVID Fog Phenomenon”. Since then, people have alternately called it other things such as the millennial-burnout, spring-fever, and plain laziness (my Dad didn’t actually use the last word but I know he must have thought that while reading my post).

Suicide Prevention 1.0

Last year when a much-loved film actor took the drastic step of ending his life, I had written about this issue, albeit a little distantly. This time the tragedy is closer to home. Three days ago, I similarly lost someone; someone who I knew only professionally but had come to respect greatly in my interactions with…

The COVID Fog Phenomenon

It’s quite simple – Depression is a disease that afflicts millions of people and yet, there is hardly any discussion about it in the public domain. Yes, occasionally some important people aka celebrities open up…

French Knitting 2.0

Hello fellow knitters! Those of you who don’t follow me on Facebook or Instagram probably don’t know that I recently did a Facebook Live session where I taught how a Knitting Dolly can be used in French Knitting to make an I-cord.

Knitting ’em grey cells

Some families like to party together, some like to holiday together, and if Sooraj Barjatya is to be believed, some families like to pray together. Well, as a family, we do a lot of things together (prayer excepted), but one thing we do a lot is to watch Agatha Christie TV adaptations. Dame Christie plays a huge role in my family…
