Do you try out a neat new pattern and decide later what to do with it, be it to list for sale on Etsy, or gift to friend or family? Do you crochet just when there's a particular reason to, like needing a gift for a new baby or housewarming?
I'm inspired by all of the above. Sometimes I'll head to the store to pick up a particular color of yarn to finish one project, then end up with several other skeins in my basket just because I love to pair up interesting colors.
Other times I'll find a cute pattern during my internet travels and have to check my stash to see if I have the yarn needed to give it a try, which often results to another visit to the store.
And then of course a new baby in the family means whipping up a baby blanket.
Sometimes seeing a piece of clothing or fabric in a store will give me inspiration because the color combination caught my eye. Are you inspired by colors around you? Here are some ways I get Yarn Color Ideas for Knit and Crochet Projects.
How about it ... what inspires you?
