Feeling inspired

Hi There,
WIP Scarf
I have just been catching up on few blogs I follow.  The little crafting community I have found here in blogging land and over on Instagram inspire me everyday.  Sometimes there is too much inspiration and NEVER enough hours in the day to make all the ideas that float around in my head. I love it though.  Makes me feel alive!

I am loving the colour palette of the Contemporary Crochet Granny Blanket over at Annie's Place. She does the most beautifully neat crochet.  

Attic 24 has got me excited about getting my yarn pegs sorted.  Love all that yummy bursts of colour.  This might my next job.

Over at Betsy Makes I have been inspired to have a long term blanket on the go for 2016. Charliebarleymo a crafty instagramer started me thinking about this idea last year.  She has made an amazing blanket from scrap yarn and made oodles of little squares then joined them together.  

I think this is a great idea.  It would give me a chance to get rid of some yarn and perhaps make the pile a little smaller.  But after finishing the 'Never Ending Blanket'...and uttering loudly to my hubby the words "I am never doing granny squares again"...I may change my mind and give it a go. Could be a good winter project.  However,  if I take up this project, this new 2016 blanket challenge CAN NOT take four years to produce!  It can not turn into the 'Never Ending Blanket #2'
...I will keep you posted.

Take care,


  1. i'm still working on the Attic24 cozy blanket i started with the CAL back in November 2014... that is my neverending blanket but i still love it. i'm one stripe off half way but i don't mind, i'm currently knitting socks instead!

    1. Hi Clareio, sorry I never replied sooner. Just found your rude of me. I hope you managed to finish your never ending blanket soon so you can enjoy it. Take care Lxx
