Inspiration

At the moment I’m about half way through crocheting a granny square blanket, which I discovered – to my delight – was a very simple thing to crochet. See, the problem with most crocheting patterns for my part – and with most knitting patterns too – is having to keep count and remember where I’d got to when I pick something up after a break. But with granny squares I don’t have to keep count, as it’s easy to tell at a glance where you are on a particular square. Lovely stuff.

Anyway, I’ve started collecting links for inspiration, and added a few blogs to my feed, too (most notably Bad Monkey and Kaptein Biff). For my next project I think I’ll try this pattern:

Circle in square pattern from Sols(tr)ikke (Norwegian)

Unless I can find a good pattern for a square with a flower portrudin before then, as I’d like to make a blanket like that for a friend who expressed nostalgia for that particular type.

But I might consider another circle in square pattern that Bad Monkey linked to yesterday, namely this one:

Colorful Crochet

Which is called Circle of Friends. Aren’t those colours delicious?

Talking about colour, what do you say to these houses?

Awesomeness

Awesomeness

So, two new blogs for the feed, obviously:

Aha

Well, so.

What if we combine that last one with this:
