A little crochet inspiration

My creative juices have been somewhat repressed recently. Probably a combination of illness, having loads on at work and having no money making sure no inspiration makes its way to the forefront of my mind.

I read a great post by Charlotte last week about creativity and finding your mojo. It seems I’m not the only one finding this recently but, taking Charlotte’s advice I clicked through to a few blogs. Current favourites are Attic24, Something I Made (as recommended by Charlotte), Oyster & Pearl , Tales from a Happy House and ohdeardrea.

And so I feel my mojo slowly returning. I have a huge stash of yarn left over from a granny blanket (unfinished, of course) I started months ago. I have always loved this knitted blanket from Mamas & Papas and now my babies are growing (sniff!) I’ve taken my inspiration from here and I’m making me a Mama-sized edition.

And so it starts. A simple treble-crochet stripe (after an enormous 200-strong foundation chain) interspersed with double crochet lines. I’m using my favourite colours from the stash and am fast running out but as the yarn I’m using is a bargainous £1.50 for 100g I shan’t feel too guilty if I need a few more.

Lord knows how long this is going to take. I’m hoping to get it finished by the time I go away in July (don’t know why, it’s not like I’ll need it in Spain at the height of summer. Hopefully).

It’s very simple to do so I’ll post a tutorial once I’m done. Hopefully this promise will also encourage me to actually finish a project for once.
