I made one of these before, but, alas, as with many of my things it got lost in my move north. So I had been wanting to make another, and finally I did!
A Sistrum is an ancient musical and magickal instrument. It was used in Egypt and before. Priestesses of Hathor used them in their offices.
They are now used to both help raise energy and disperse unwanted or blocked energy.
They can be made of wood or metal, can have wire or wood that the bells, clappers are on. I like the beads on this one, I like the fact that it makes a *shhush shusshing* sound along with a gentle clinking.
My next one I want to find more bell like clappers for it, and perhaps make it differently.

Greetings One and All!!!!
I finally got my triple moon doily and brought it back out for pictures! This was a first for me, knitting a design in two colors, it is different than just doing rows of different colors. I hope you all like it. I made the design by drawing it on graph paper first, then redid it several times in places and still not happy with my smaller crescents. But I will work on them again later. Another project for another time.
I also included a picture of the back, feel free to tell me what I did wrong! lol
