My Inspiration for Projects
Many folks ask me where I get my patterns for my crochet projects. Well, I have several subscriptions to some popular crochet magazines. I love the three pictured here: Crochet Today!, Crochet World, and Interweave Crochet. I have a large collection of the magazines and mark my favorite patterns with sticky notes. I also get a lot of free patterns from internet sites, such as: http://www.crochetpatterncentral.com/, http://www.favecrafts.com/, http://www.redheart.com/, http://www.lionbrand.com/, and other crocheters' blogs. I love experimenting with new stitches. Back-post and front-post crochet stitches proved to be a challenge at first, but they are my favorite stitches now. I also love experimenting with new yarns.....love soft ones, ribbons, ones with glitter, beads, etc. I have even dropped hints to hubby to get some sheep and we'll let them mow the grass in the yard for us and then I can spin my own wool and have fun dying it!!! He hasn't agreed to THAT idea YET!! But I am persistent! LOL :) and I am spoiled rotten by him. He is a keeper.....oh, and shhhh! don't tell, but he untangles my yarn for me and rolls it into balls for me. I love him!
I read a fellow blogger say that yarn is delicious and I agree! Yarn IS delicious! delightful! delectable! I need to take some pics of all my yarn but I'm not ready to confess to that yet.........
