A beautiful and unique shawl with warm autumnal shades that is sure to create an impression and make a statement! It is lightweight and still provides warmth and protection while it’s bright, fiery colours are sure to brighten any grey autumn day. It’s large width and impressive drape is very similar to a poncho, just with an open and flowing front. While most shawls are either square or triangular this has an unique 3 point shape at the back with long rectangular front panels to ensure it stays in place! This shawl takes inspiration from the phoenix of myth, its bright colours representing the fire from which it takes its form, interspersed with a subtle shift of the shade of grey brown representing the ashes it rose from. A small gold panel sits at the bottom of one of the front panels in place of the treasure the phoenix guarded. This item is as you see in the gallery images and just like the Phoenix of myth only one of these will be made in these colours and style, this is an OOAK, one of a kind, item. If you would like something similar (perhaps a mermaid theme, or a single solid colour) please feel free to message me to make a request.
This made with 100% acrylic yarn, so is suitable for vegans or those with wool allergies and is easy to wash.
I have suffered with Depression since being a teenager (I wont say how long ago that was) but my mental health took a dive when I was made redundant (twice), suffered a miscarriage and dealing with my issues of extreme Anxiety during the pregnancy of my rainbow baby (I already knew what loss felt like and I still expect it to happen any moment). All this happened in the space of 2 years. My son is now 2 and a half and I still cannot bear to be separated from him due to extreme Anxiety.
I am also a Carer for my husband, who is wonderful and so very supportive but has his own demons to deal with in the form of Depression and Anxiety with Paranoid Psychosis.
I started my crafting career when my son’s friends all started turning one. As an unemployed mother I didn’t have the funds to purchase gifts as was expected, so I crocheted each of them a lovely blanket.
It has been a struggle to progress my designs to the point that they all pass CE testing flawlessly, but I got there! The biggest struggle was finding yarn that proves it passes chemical restrictions, in the end I had to pay a lab to perform tests on my own samples.
I am also starting to return to other crafts that I have tried in the past including pyrography and jewellery designs.
I hope to be able to keep myself busy and distracted long enough to cope with the ordeal of sending my son to nursery!
