Crocheters want to be inspired and it’s up to bloggers / designers to sometimes help with the push to get crocheters beyond a mental block or lull. 345 more words
Don't be afraid to try a new stitch or pattern. I try to learn a new stitch in my so called down time. When I look around my house I have loads of patterns in binders and organizers. Sometimes I go through my discarded patterns to see if I can master the pattern at this present time. There's a reason why it was tucked away and it gives me the opportunity if it's a yay or nay.
I gave myself a little challenge. A coworker wanted three dog sweaters, so I told her to buy the yarn and I'll make them. Well let me tell you, almost three weeks later and I'm not close to a darn thing. Making clothing for dogs is not my strong suit at all. First off, I can't visualize the breed of their dog and even with custom measurements I'm struggling. I'm determined to give her at least one sweater by the end of the week. So here's to me experimenting with a different pattern.
I saw a lovely sweater in the May/June 2013 Crochet Today magazine with a stitch that looked interesting.
As I was searching for what I was writing about above, my attention switched from looking for the info on the sweater to the next edition of the Crochet Today! magazine. Feast your eyes on this crochet candy....
