I'm having a crafters block and don't know what to make. Crocheting is my "main" craft I guess you could say, it's something I enjoy along with writing and photography, but I have no clue what I should make now. I want to make something fun and creative that can inspire people to crochet (or possibly want to buy  Wink) but I have not I have no idea what it should be! Help!

Hats are always handy, and can be as simple or crazy as you want. I'm currently stitching up a hat for my SIL in the colors of the German flag. She wants a scarf to match but *ugh*. Will defo have to go through my stitch dictionaries to find a non-boring way to make one for her.

I've personally been tempted to make the Mermaid's Cowl. There's also a crochet version of the Wingspan shawl.

Do you have a cat?

Do you know a little boy or girl?

@ AcrophobicPixie : haha yeah I'm actually constantly making hats it's seems. Before I actually hated making them because they were so time consuming but now that I've found a wonderful pattern thats quick It seems like they're all I'm ever making! XP
And I just completed this scarf (I posted it with my slouchy hat in the crochet completed projects, it's the red scarf). It's a really simple pattern where you just basically make an "X". You should check it out, you just skip one stitch double(or triple if you want) crochet in the next two stitches and then go back and do a double(or triple) crochet in the stitch you skipped. I think it'd look nice with the color changing. you should try it! Cheesy

@Alexus1325 : Those are some nice patterns. Unfortunately I don't have a cat, just a finicky dog that likes attention lol. But I'll have to keep those in mind. I actually just started a swap with someone from another craft website so I have my hands full right now with TOO many things I want to make lol but I'll be sure to post pictures and everything on here when I'm done with her surprises! Cheesy

Thanks for the suggestions by the way! Cheesy
