Happy Diwali with a glow of crochet !

Happy Diwali to all !

Just to let all know that Diwali is the biggest Hindu festival . According to Hindu mythology , this day Lord Rama returned to his kingdom in Ayodhya after his victory over the demon king Ravana . After fighting a fierce battle with demon's army , Rama got back his beloved wife Sita who was kidnapped by Ravana . Also it was the end of Rama's 14 years of exile that was ordered by his step mother . On his return , the entire kingdom was lit by lamps since it was a day of Amavasya (no moon day) .

The term ' Diwali ' means a ' series of light ' and is celebrated by lighting lot of earthen lamps and lanterns . Delicious sweets and snacks are prepared and we fire crackers for fun !

In a free hand crochet attempt, I have tried making a ' Diya ' i.e. an earthen lamp. Hope you might like ! :) This is my first pure pattern ! Not plug n play like I did for my crochet bag :)

I am going to try this again and will write down the pattern to share with you all . I wanted to share it before Diwali but was too busy in Diwali cleaning and food preparation .

My daughter has got loads of crackers from her Dad! She is also looking forward to make Rangoli at our doorstep  :)

Wishing you all a happy and safe Diwali !:)

Preeti  :)
