Do you crocheters out there need some inspiration?  Well, I'm here to hopefully provide that for you this week.  At least I hope so!

Look through these before you go clicking the links and leave me.  You must leave me some love in the comments.  I love hearing from all of you.  It makes my day to read your comments even if it's just a quick hello.

Look at these pretty things you could be making:
It's really pretty, you can use scraps, and the pattern is FREE!  No excuses!  This one was made by CrocheterAmanda and posted on Crochetville HERE.  The free pattern pdf is HERE.

And then there's this...
This is one of the prettiest Log Cabin Afghans I have seen.  These colors are great together.  I would have never thought of them myself.  Found this picture on Crochetville HERE.  The FREE pattern link is there.

Or what about this...
This was made by Crochetbug13 found HERE.  It's also a FREE pattern.  Follow the link she gives to the pattern.  It reminds me of the Groovy Ghan that is so popular right now.

Or this...
Pretty BRIGHT granny squares!  You can do that without a pattern!  Come on, girls (and guys)!  Get those juices flowing.  Just a couple of squares a day will get you started.  This one belongs to StripeyMonkey on Ravelry.

Just look at this sweet daisy blanket made by Angelfee.  Bunny Mummy has a great tutorial for a blanket like this on her blog HERE.  

Look at the pretty blue one:
Made by Priscilla.  Go to her blog HERE and see all of her amazing afghans.  She's got some gorgeous ones.

Is that enough?
Did anything catch your eye or your heart?

More?  Okay...
Everybody needs a RED granny blanket.
It doesn't matter if it doesn't match anything you have.
You've gotta have one.
This one is by HardDaysKnit on Ravelry.

This one is by Andamento.
She says it's "garish."
I say it's gorgeous!

Okay, I'm done.
I hope you enjoyed today's presentation.
You crocheters out there are AMAZING!


  1. Greetings here's a comment for you ;). I do NOT need inspiration. I need help in narrowing my choices down. My computer's hard drive is chock full of patterns and all the membership sites that allow you to have a "library" are full of my pattern selections too. I need help, lots of help;)

  2. WOW! I love the last two. I never thought to do a granny square one in red. And the colors of the last one are awesome. Not garish at all when you are a color lover like me :) Thanks for posting the pics :)

  3. Gadzooks, that was a lot of colorful inspiration! I agree on the red granny square, that would bright up any home! Love it all! *T*H*A*N*K* * *Y*O*U*!*!*!*
    ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  4. They are all gorgeous Pammy Sue! I have been admiring Priscilla's on her blog! So much wonderful inspiration out there. When I finish my bobble, and I am almost done, then I am going to make a bath mat in the same bobble stitch, using cotton.
    : ) Hugs,

  5. Woo hoo eye candy for sure! Thanks for more inspiration, Pammy!

  6. Yum, Pammy Sue...all so delicious looking.

    Now the log cabin really interests me and I thank you for the pattern link. I love quilts but have no patience with sewing so this is a great alternative.

    Isn't the daisy one gorgeous? In the fall I plan to make the blue one for myself and a pink or lavender for my grand-daughter.

    You know I love crocheting afghans more than anything else but now I have given one to everyone I know plus charity donations. This week I decided to start making them for myself and then just stacking the finished ones on a chest in the guest room. What a nice view for company but also seeing them at a glance will be very satisfying.

    Great great inspirations...I loved seeing every one of them.
    Your a gem..

  7. Those are all fabulous. Thanks for sharing the links, Pammy Sue. :o)

  8. I love them all, but that red one just really jumped out at me. Thanks for all the great inspiration :)

  9. I have so many projects already going that I really shouldn't start anything else right now-- but of course it doesn't hurt to look! ;o) And I do have a ton of red yarn, so that red granny is interesting...

    Thanks for the pretty inspiration photos (and links)!

  10. You're such a troublemaker! What a bunch of great finds!

  11. THANKS!! I'm currently knitting but may start crocheting a new granny throw this weekend.

  12. Hey southern girl,
    I hope you are well??
    So much inspiration.....
    i really love the first pattern from red heart.
    Plus i have to agree the red one POPS.
    Have a Great Day

  13. Thank you for the inspiration and the little enabler you!

  14. There's three I want to make NOW! These are amazing. Keep posting your finds, my to do list is getting longer and longer.

  15. I wuv you!! Such good eye candy, made my fingers twitch. I am a huge fan of Crochet bug. Oh my choices...

  16. They're all so pretty! I want to stop what I'm making to start a new blanket!

  17. They're all stunners but that last one really spoke to me. I need to make one for my 3yo g'son and I think that one will fit the bill quite nicely. Thanks for sharing!

  18. LOVE the first one! I have to finish my other projects before I can even think about starting another one! Oh, and HI Pammy Sue! :)

  19. OMG!! you are to much LOL I love your blog becasue I enjoy your crochet postings!! I think the sweet pink daisy one has to go on my list of MUST DOS! Thank you for all the wonderful sites. I am off to check them all out now :0)

  20. Well, here I am saying hello Pammy Sue. Love the log cabin ghan but they're all beautiful with one exception (for me anyway) .. won't say which one as I don't want to offend anyone. You've been finding some very pretty things - that purple poncho yesterday was beautiful. Have a nice day xoxoxox

  21. It is funny just downloaded te first pattern you have on your blog working three afghans right now couple almost finished. Thank for sharing such great projects take care.

  22. Thanks ! now I want to make a couple of these blankets too ! I love the pink daisy ..the red one ..and the very bright granny square ..Thanks for the shout out on your blog.. My flower blanket has hit a snag..I went to get more of the background color yesterday and its gone ! Walmart clearanced them out !!!! So I came home after 2 stores and googled and can't find it. I am going to Hobby Lobby today and see if they have it or a color similar ..If not I guess I will be taking off all the aqua to replace it ! UUGHH. Hope your blanket is growing :)

  23. Lots of eye candy there for a Friday Eve! :o) Thanks! Have a wonderful weekend Pammy Sue. Mine will most likely be quiet. :o)

  24. I did "flower tiles afghan", with other colors.

  25. thanks for the inspiration - I have been in need of some!!

  26. Pammy Sue, shame on you! I keep telling myself I am about burned out on yarn for now and want to pull out my sewing machine and sew, then gosh darn it, you post all these pretties and I want to grab up my crochet hook and start another blanket. It would be so hard to choose which one is the prettiest, but I am partial to scrappy things and several of these would be perfect for using up the stash of left overs. Thank you so much for sharing these.
    Have a great weekend! (((HUGS))) Susanne :)

  27. Oh such a great inspiration!!! Those are gorgeous blankies!!! Thank you so much for sharing!

  28. Hi Pammy Sue! I have been following you blog for some time now....imagine my surprise to see my work showcased here! That's my log cabin afghan! It was a lot of fun to make...I see another one in my future!
