Hi friends 🙂 I am sorry for being AWOL for so long. Illness and a long string of assignments can really zap your time. I am not better but I am trying to summon the courage to talk to someone. And in between these episodes, I have been able to find the time to pick up the crafts I’ve wanted to try for a while. A few weeks ago I picked up macrame 🙂 (I’ve also picked up knitting! Which will probably be in the next post) Finally tried something that I Pinned ages ago: Parlor’s Mini Macrame Wall Hanging.
I didn’t use the usual materials for macrame because I couldn’t be bothered going to the stores, and I simply wanted to practise making the knots so I didn’t mind what I was using. So I settled for superb 10 ply cotton yarn from Bendigo Woollen Mills (from my crochet supplies – I have so much yarn and cannot buy anymore!). In case you’re interested, this is the yarn I used in the baby blanket I made last year/ finished this year 🙂
I spent a considerable amount of time measuring and cutting the pieces:
My “twig”, by the way, is a piece of magazine paper that I rolled up. #lazyorrepurposing? :p
Then I made the hanging with the help of Parlor’s easy-to-follow instructions!
I had to block it because some of my knots were rather uneven/ the yarn twisted a little bit.
After that was done I trimmed the ends:
… Et voilà!
Promise I’ll do a nicer-looking one in the future!
Thanks for reading 🙂
