Many people often find they get on a roll when it comes to crafting.

They just keep on going because being creative is rewarding.

I have finally finished a crocheted Granny Square blanket for my daughter. It has been a long time in the making 🙂 It felt so good to complete it and see her smile, knowing she could use it.

This time last year I attempted some knitting projects,  a couple of cowls and my first ever knitted hat.

It was a real challenge but with a little help from fabulous online tutorials, the hat worked out 🙂 I want to keep trying new simple patterns.

Hope you’ve been finding some excellent crafty sales and knitting bargains with the sales going on now:)

Hope you enjoy this week’s creative inspiration…
