Pink Mohair Frilly Large DreamcatcherGlitterandFrills
This large Dreamcatcher would make a lovely nursery decoration or bedroom decor. This one is near and dear to my heart because I collected the yarn from Purl Soho in NYC while on a fun day trip with my Mom...such a good memory! I've begun to knit it into a scarf several times but never liked how it was turning out (because I needed just the perfect project for such awesome yarn ;) Now I have finally found what it's perfect for! I love the way it looks as a dreamcatcher...so whimsical and sweet. The pink lace mohair came from a really neat yarn shop in San Diego, California. I snagged it while on vacation with my husband. Again, one of those yarns that I love so much, I haven't been able to find the perfect project for...until now!
Dreamcatchers are made by many Native American artists and people throughout the world, but they originated with the Ojibwe people. It is said that when a dream catcher is hung above the place where you sleep, it catches the dreams as they drift by. The good dreams, knowing their way, pass through the opening in the center of the webbing while the bad dreams, not knowing the way, are caught in the webbing and destroyed at the first light of the morning sun.
Wrapped with leather cord, strung with yummy beads and beautiful handmade yarn and I've added feathers wrapped in gold wire.
The ring measures 7" in diameter with an additional 20 inches in frills and doodads, so about 27" in length total.
