The first FO of the year! I changed my mind about the mittens when I realized I could finally start my Year-in-a-Blanket project! (Ravelry Link)

This is the Dream Catcher block to represent January (used J Hook). Why a dream catcher?

Well, instead of resolutions, how about focusing on our dreams? The dreams we hold in our hearts for ourselves, our loved ones, and the world. I'm inspired by this thought. It seems so much easier to say I dream of... and then work toward making it come true. "Catch" your dreams!

What are your dreams for the future?

As for me, I'm working on dreaming big. For one, I want a house and it is about time I get moving toward getting one!

What a lovely square! I really like the sentiment behind it as well.

The dreamcatcher is stunning! Have you thought of adding some silver or gold thread along as you crochet?
