Design Process: from inspiration to idea

As you know the three of us work very differently when it comes to our own designs. Today I want to show you how I start with something new (and as I am the one with the many many WIPs, starting is the easiest thing for me).

I actually don’t think that I am a creative person. I cannot really draw or decorate and my pictures are generally rather OK than inspiring. So why should you be interested in what I have to say on the matter?

WIP madness

In my mind having tons of WIPs – works in progress – is a sign of a creative mind. At least that is what I am telling myself.

Today I spent an hour frogging some of the WIPs I have been dragging around for years, finally giving up on them.

Mood Scarf Crochet Along

I am the worst at just doing one thing. Maybe it is because my mind wanders to easily and I get distracted too much or because I always felt like I needed to get more out of my time during the day, I cannot say. The only thing where I am not getting distracted very easily is reading. I love books and I love to read (sometimes even more than crocheting…). So for me it is a reoccurring battle of who wins tonight: the book or the crochet hook? Read More
