projects i want to try

...because I haven't already got enough on the go!

I feel pretty safe in the assumption that if you, as a knitter, crocheter or just general crafter, are reading this you too have at least 5 or 6 or even more work's in progress (WIPs) on the go. I myself, have too many to count (the joys of seeing shiny things in books and on the internet) but that's just the way of crafting :)

So, as if I didn't have enough on the go and enough in my to-do pile, I have still many many more I want to try out that I keep pinning to my Pinterest boards (by the way, let's follow each other!) and so every weekend, if you don't mind, I would like to share with you the projects I stumbled across the week before and hope to try out soon! :)

I've been collecting fabric scraps over the past year and tying them into a ball with the intent of knitting them into a rug, but I've seen crocheted rugs and might have to try that out instead. These round ones in particular are lovely!

I've always fancied crocheting a basket for my yarn - how personal - but I thought you would need special material to work with. But Stephanie at All About Ami gave me the idea here of using this as a stash-busting project, which I need! And I think I will probably follow this pattern or this one sooner rather than later (my stash needs another basket - the irony)

I LOVE seeing all the different things you can do with granny squares! I've had my eye on this for a little while and I think it should be pretty straightforward to replicate myself - another stash-busting project. Why not have a look at my granny squares inspired board too?


A short round up to give you a taste of what I hope will be a regular feature of my blog! What projects/pieces of internet have you inspired this week?

  1. The crochet rugs are a great idea! I have so many fabric scraps... I started to make a rag rug with them but it's turned into a bit of a long-term WIP, haha

  2. One day i'll get around to attempting to crochet a rug from fabric scraps too - it's been on my must do list for a while, they always look such a great idea!
