I've been suffering from crafter's block. All year really. I don't know where my sewing mojo has gone. Maybe it's been sucked into the Pinterest abyss. Too much time spent looking at other people's creative output, leaving less time for my own creating. I'm not sure what it is - the pressure to create something equally pretty; too many pretty things to choose from it's hard to know what project to choose.
Meanwhile, look at this pretty yarn. It's a linen yarn from Quince and Co. It's quite dreamy to look at. I've been flicking through my Japanese crochet books for a little inspiration.
I came across this image. Isn't this granny square blanket fabulous? I think it's the red that makes it so striking - a nice change from the white bordered ones. I love the bobbly edging on it too. It's from this book. Not sure how it helps me with my little ball of linen yarn though. See, there I go, dithering. What to do, what to do?
