Macrame & Crochet

My first project idea is inspired by these macrame necklaces.

My second is a hanging cat bed or cat hammock.

I might crochet the cat bed.

 

My third choice is a dreamcatcher, but I’m not too sure what design I want.

This isn’t a dreamcatcher but I like the design and might use it for my dreamcatcher.

Making my macrame keychain went pretty smoothly, and it turned out pretty great! It was actually supposed to be a necklace, but I didn’t have a jump ring or a chain and I used a binder ring instead of a tiny hoop thing that wasn’t openable, so it’s super easy to take off of one thing and attatch to another.

I learned how to do the square knot in macrame, and I also learned that I don’t really like tying knots, and I like crocheting a lot more than macrame. I think that’s because crocheting is a lot easier and I’m lazy.

The cat bed I made was pretty challenging, especially in the beginning, because I didn’t┬áhave super thick yarn, and so I used two rolls of the thickest yarn I could find (same color). They weren’t that thick at all, and in the end, I had to crochet another row, but it still turned out a lot smaller than it could’ve been if I’d used thicker yarn. When starting my magic circle, things were pretty confusing because everything was doubled. When making the sides of the cat bed, I began to realize that hooking through the first loop only wasn’t going to work, because everything was starting to bend inwards. I thought the yarn probably wasn’t strong enough, so I started inserting the hook through the top loop, plus strand from the other loop (I could do this because of the doubled yarn). It kind of worked I guess, and now things aren’t as inward-facing (but still flops toward the center). I’m pretty sure for the sides, I missed a few stitches, and there are probably holes here and there, but that wasn’t really my concern at the time since I was starting to run out of yarn and I still needed a lot for the liner inside the cat bed. In the end, I made the liner, but it’s a lot smaller than the cat bed because I did actually run out of yarn. The cat bed didn’t turn out as good as I hoped it would, but I guess it’s up to Latte to decide if it’s good or not.

One day is important because it lets you take a sort of break from school work and homework and stuff for a day or two. It also lets you try new things, or work on your hobbies.
