Recent Knitting

Asalam Alaikum,

I have started another Stockinette BSJ for one of my jaytani's(BIL's wife) sisters, who just had a baby boy. It is a bit further along than this, I just finished the back extension.

I have also been working on the Tasha bag. I only have about 20 more inches to go on the strap before all the pieces are done and the I can start the finishing.


Last up is another "Spartan Beanie". This is reverse colors to the last one, and I think only one more test knit and I may put up a pattern for it.

Khus-sa

Aslam Alaikum,
These are Khus-sa, they are basically just a flat slip on shoe.

In our family, most of the ladies prefer heels, and only wear Khus-sa for Mehndi parties. I am really not a heel person, so for most minor functions/parties they are my shoe of choice. Khus-sa come in a rainbow of colors, and are generally covered in embroidery, sequins, beads, and tiny mirrors.
