Have you ever heard of the “Crocheting Blues”? No? Are you sure??? I think you have! It’s that period (short, long and OMG what am I going to do?) of time when you’re in a crochet block and no, not those kinds of blocks!!
I had the “Crocheting Blues” the other day for like TWO days straight! Can you believe it? Two days without touching my hooks and yarn! That was not fun at all. But I just couldn’t bring myself to make anything. For some reason my inspiration just went poof and left me :(.
Thank God for Pinterest! It only took me a couple of hours to restore it to it’s original place and voilà! I picked up my yarn and hook and started crocheting again. I actually came up with a series of new patterns that I’m sure you’ll enjoy.There are still in the developing phases so no photos yet.
After curing myself of the blues, this is what I did =0) My first fingerless gloves and a hat to match them! Let me know what you think.
Tips for getting rid of the “Crocheting Blues”:
#1 Take a step back. Sometimes too much yarn (GASP) can be overwhelming and you just need to put the hook and yarn down.
#2 If that doesn’t work, take a walk outside even if it’s for just five minutes. The fresh air will clear your head from all the yarn webs and allow new ideas to flow.
#3 Pinterest! Piterest! Pinterest! When all else fails, Pinterest! You’ll find that browsing through it will let your creativity resurface and you’ll create gorgeous new projects!!
There you have it! Getting rid of the “Crocheting Blues” when they creep up on you without notice!
Would you know what to do when it happens to you?
It’s when you have all these gorgeous balls of yarn, your favorite hook and pattern yet you don’t know what to crochet or simply don’t feel like crocheting. It’s all coming back to you now, isn’t it?

Have you ever grabbed your yarn and hook with the intention of making…I don’t know, coasters. But THEN as you crochet around you realize that the stitches you are using would look awesome on anything other than a coaster?
Well, that’s what happened to me. I intended to make coasters for the beautiful flower vases hubby had gotten me. As I tried a stitch I’ve been playing around with, I decided to make the coaster into a hat.
The stitch pattern was looking really nice so I didn’t want to “waste” it on a coaster, lol. As my mind was now racing with this new pattern idea, my fingers were working faster to see how this unintended hat was going to look like.
Needless to say that I was very pleased with my final product! Now my only concern was how to actually write a pattern that people would be able to follow :/ If you’re anything like me, I get all these crazy ideas of patterns that sound so cool in my head. But when it comes to putting them on paper? Well, let’s just say that more often than not they don’t exactly translate the same.
I did end up making those coasters though. I figured I owed it to my flowers to have something pretty to sit on 😉
In conclusion, not everything you intend to crochet works out. However, when we let our imagination go, amazing things happen.

For the first time ever I made boot cuffs and a neck warmer. It was really fun making these and I think for next winter that’d be my new obsession 😉
Some of them are available for purchase, others are in the process of being written and tested and others are just me coming up with ideas and no time to put them on paper :/
I made these adorable sets during the Autism awareness month. It’s still in the testing stages but it’ll be available soon =)
