A Challenge: Let’s Do Something New!

4 Mar

For most of you that know me – you know that I love to crochet. What I usually make are infinity scarves because for me, I can make one in a day, doesn’t take much concentration or counting, and I love the end result!


It’s been a long time since I’ve tried something new so I decided to mix it up a little. I bought a bunch of new books that are really interesting and I’m challenging myself to make something new once a month or more!


Who’s ready for a little fun?


I love the idea of making my own placemats and table runners and mixing different colors for each season!



This looks so cozy I can’t wait to give it a try! We had something similar to this that fit in Emma’s carseat but still strapped her in. I’d like to attempt it!



I’m pretty sure I own enough bags, but I don’t own any I’ve made!! Is that a good enough excuse to make another one? ;)

What should I do for my first attempt at a new project? Are you working on something new too?

Love Always,

    I love this! I am working on making new crochet items as well! The first I wanted to try was an infinity scarf. I would never have thought to make a placemat and change colors for the season! What a great idea! Thanks for the inspiration!

      Infinity scarves are SOO much fun to make! You’ll have to leave a comment if you post about it so I can see :) Glad you loved the inspiration!

    I think that trying something new as often as possible is a great idea. I mostly sew, but i have dabbled in crochet and such. Currently my new experiment is decoupage. That has been a challenge but thus far I am enjoying the results.

      I agree – I tend to fall in love with something and make it until I get sick of it and then I have to remind myself to try something new! Oh decoupage is so much fun!
