To tell you the truth, I am in the mood to spin. But today is supposed to be a crochet post so I decided to browse the newest patterns on Ravelry. I hope I can find some inspiration to get me back on tack.
Several days … I mean hours later….
Oh! I did find some great patterns! I’ll have to give these a try sometime, especially the ones that will brighten my day. Winter’s gloom is so depressing. I want sunshine and warmth.
New Ravelry Patterns
These are the newest free patterns on Ravelry that caught my eye and I think you’ll want to add them to your Favorites and maybe give them a go.
First up is the Washing Machine by Amilovegurumi which is the cutest thing I’ve seen today! It does involve other bits like a cardboard box and pipe cleaners which makes it more of an arts and craft project, but still fun to try.
The Magpie’s Muse has a scarf, headband, and fingerless glove set that she made with 2 skeins of Lion Brand Landscape yarn. This looks like a quick and easy project if you need to keep warm after you burned your winter clothes in protest yesterday. LOL
If you are looking for a cute way to keep your crochet stuff organized, why not try to make the Weebee Sally Doll from Laura Tegg? I love the sweet look on the doll’s face and the curly bun adds to its charm.
Crochet is also a source of emotional comfort to many and the Gratiude Stones from Jaime Eads Maraia reminds us to be grateful for what we have. I am grateful for the bun sisters and their antics that keep me smiling.
Sheila Alexander’s Simple Slippers would come in handy these days since winter just does not want to go away (Snow in the forecast for Saturday? I give up!). This is a good pattern to Favorite when that cold spell sneaks in after you’ve put your winter clothes away.
If you are one of the lucky few that is running away to a tropical island soon, Tuula Maaria has a pattern for Barefoot Sandals that will set the mood for your trip.
If All Else Fails…
Still in the dumps with this weather and can’t find an escape? Yup. Been there. Done that. Blow the whole thing up with The Stress Bomb from Corina Peckham. Gotta love someone with a good sense of humor! I think she has nailed it.
Have you found any fun crochet projects you want to add to your Favorites on Ravelry? Let me know in the comments below. I’m sure that I missed quite a few as I was researching this post.
Have an excellent day!
