New project, wonderful yarn, a picture.

Hello, everybody!
All of us have days sometimes when we are not inspired, don't believe in ourselves  and feel down. What do you do to get out of that hole? Let's share our recipes.
My ways are:
1. To text my friend Larisa and ask her to kick my butt, because there is no real reason to be down.
2. Go for a walk with ear-phones on and listen to my favorite public radio.
3. Read blogs of enthusiastic people, for example my favorite now -
http://whileshenaps.com/ Abby is such an inspiration for me!
3. Hold on and wait for the next day, it always gets better.

When I work on a new project my mood always swings from "Oh, I love it!" to "OMG, I hate it!". So, today is #2
This is the project I am currently working on. My inspiration came from the color combination. Then I ordered Lithuanian linen thread from this wonderful store YarnStories:


Just check out the color line:

It took me a few days to choose the ones I want.

Finally, an image for you, guys. This is from yesterday walk:

Happy crocheting, my friends!

    1. Hello Natalia, your picture is unreal. it is feels like a part of the fantasy fairyland. Thanks for your wonderful art. Olga from Chicago.

  2. When I lived in a hotel for 12 weeks because I broke both of my ankles I made a similar blanket. Picture is here: http://www.ravelry.com/projects/marla3206/polka-dots-and-more

    1. Thank you, Marla! Yes, it's the same stitch! I discovered it in Mickael Kors collection and got inspired. It is my second project using this stitch and I have more ideas. :)))

  3. Hi my name is Michele Stevenson and I live in Edmonton Alberta, Canada. I have recently started to crochet jewelry and have made baby blankets for years. I wanting to sell my product to raise money for my daughters sports. Would you be so kind as to provide me with a little information re: the difference between copying another's work/pattern for profit and being INSPIRED by their work/patterns? Thanks so much! There is so much around, pages, blogs, magazines, Pinterest pins, Etsy sales, etc......... I just want to make sure that I don't copy people and yet there are so many patterns I'd like to try or adapt for my personal use. Thanks for taking the time to read this. I love your page!

  4. Natalia, what a day brightener! The landscape is awesome and the crochet project you're working on looks beautiful. And, on top of that you have very thoughtfully provided the color chart for the linen thread. I was recently thinking of getting some linen thread (inspired by the jewelry you made with the natural linen thread) and had no idea your source sold so many colors...fantastic!

    Warmly, Marie Raymond

    1. Thank you, Marie!

  5. Natalia, great color combo... can't wait to see finished project!! :)

    1. Thank you, Kate! :)) I started another one out of the same combo. :))) This yarn is such an inspiration!
