What is it that you usually like to crochet? Is it afghans, scarves or granny squares? Or something else?

Those are all fantastic projects, and they're satisfying to crochet. But, if you've already made bunches of these types of projects, why not challenge yourself and get out of your comfort zone a little?

If you're used to crocheting with yarn, perhaps you could try shaking things up a little by attempting to crochet without yarn. This isn't as preposterous as it sounds; by now, maybe you've even noticed that the bracelet pictured is a) crocheted, and b) made without even so much as an inch of yarn. It's one of the projects featured on our list of wire crochet jewelry patterns.

If you're a die-hard yarn addict and you have no plans of changing that, no worries, there are plenty of other ways to challenge yourself. You could try a new stitch or a new technique, or maybe branch out and try some different types of projects than what you usually make. There are bunches of possibilities.

Thanks so much for dropping by. Hope you'll have a lovely, creative and productive day.
