Dream-catchers and Amethyst Blankets

February 4, 2015

As a little break from uni work, I made a dream catcher last week! I was trimming one of my big vessels and the circlet I cut off makes for a nice frame instead of the traditional willow branch. I’ve made a dream-catcher once before, but I was only about seven, so I probably had a lot of help! You can see my first dream-catcher in the photo of my room (Below) from when I moved into my first house at uni – Its moved with me everywhere!

I started following a howto guide online, but then just started to make it up as  I went along, and the middle somehow became a star shape! I’m pretty pleased with it and I hope I’ll be able to replicate it! Unfortunately SOMEONE accidentally broke it before I could photograph it properly, but I managed to wedge the broken piece back in. I’m planning on neatening up the hanging threads and maybe adding to it too.

I have also been knitting a massive, what started of as a scarfy throw thing, and now is pretty much a blanket, when I first got to uni. I’m not a slow knitter per say, its just that I forget about it for ages then pick it up when I feel like relaxing and having a little knit. My nanna taught me to knit when I was younger; she is a diamond lady and an amazing knitter.

As you can see it is pretty big! Its made of Alpaca wool and it is super thick and snuggly! The colour is beautiful, sort of heather/ amythest purple and blue.
