Oh my goodness. I LOVE this latest project.
This has been on my 'To Do' list for months now and I kept putting it off because it just seemed like such a big project, but funnily enough, when I actually got down to doing it it was done in an afternoon!
It was probably a bit ridiculous to choose such a large project as my introduction to Macrame but I just fell in love with the design of it and have been looking for something to break up this massive expanse of blank wall in our new extension (which has 4.5 metre high ceilings!). The pattern was an Etsy purchase from Boho Journal Shop and it was great. Easy enough for a complete beginner to follow and I think the end result is just beautiful! Besides, I've never been one to do things by halves....
I can totally see myself getting addicted to making variations on this theme. I need to build up my knotting repertoire, it so far consists of square knots in various forms and that's about it. Luckily I bought about 250 metres of rope so I should have enough to experiment with!
Sorry to those who know me - you're all getting a 70's Macrame plant hanger for Christmas, if anyone objects you'd better let me know in advance!
