My apache tears crochet swatch combined with two recent discoveries inspired my latest project idea.
First, I spotted this beautiful crochet square patchwork blanket on Pinterest. A few days after falling in love with the blanket I found this book on Amazon. Even though I can’t really work on big projects at the moment, I always manage to find a lot of joy in a little crochet swatch. So, I am going to work my way through all 50 stitch patterns in this book and make a patchwork blanket of my own! I can’t wait to learn new stitches, use up my scrap yarn stash, and hopefully have a pretty blanket to enjoy. I thought about working on a new swatch a week for the 52 weeks in a year and just find two other stitch patterns to fill it out. I will definitely share my progress as my square collection gets a little bigger.
For me, staying inspired always comes from trying new things.
What projects are you working on at the moment? Have you tried the apache tears stitch yet?
