• How This Works

      Short Version

        1) Every Sunday a new crochet Prompt or Challenge will be posted. In addition, a Mission will be posted on the first day of each month, and possibly within any given month.
        2) Copy the Prompt/Challenge/Mission to your own blog with your response then come back here and leave your link in the comments of the appropriate topic so everyone will know where to find it.
        3) If you don't have a blog, why not start one? Or you can just post your response here.
        4) You don't have to participate in every post. Do the ones you want. Backtrack if you wish. 5) If you have any comments about this site and/or suggestions for a prompt/challenge, click on the "Share Your Ideas" tab and use the form to send it.

        For the long-winded version, click the About button.

Prompt: Thankfulness

Here in the states, we’re about to celebrate Thanksgiving day, so it would be fitting to talk about things we’re thankful for. Even if you don’t live in the states, you still have things to be thankful for, right? Sure you do.

What are ten things you are most grateful for? They can all be crochet-related, but we all know there’s more to life than hook & yarn. Hmm, or is there? 🙂

Happy Thanksgiving to those in the states!

Prompt: Least Favorite

Last week it was the fave; this week it’s the least favorite. Which of your hooks is the one you dislike using the most–the one you gladly size up or down for just to avoid using it–the one you’d change brands over–the one that just doesn’t get much attention (but still gets much love because hey! it’s still a crochet hook!)?

Prompt: Favorite Hook

It seems that most crocheters feel the same about hooks as they do yarn: You can never have too much of a good thing. Do you own a multitude or just a few? Which out of the hooks you own is your absolute favorite–that one hook you couldn’t live without? What makes that hook so special?

November Challenge

November is the month for NaNoWriMo. If you haven’t heard about it, NaNo is a month-long novel writing experience. You start writing your novel on the first of the month, and the idea is to have a 50,000+ word novel by the end of the month. To find out more, go to their web site: NaNoWriMo.org.

With the challenge of writing a novel, I thought it would be fitting to challenge those who are participating in NaNo to somehow incorporate crocheting into their story. It can be a crocheter, or maybe something crocheted such as a doily–anything, as long as crochet is mentioned.

To add to this challenge, crochet something to go along with your novel. Maybe it’s the doily that sat on the table of your main character. Or maybe you describe a beautiful garden: If so, you could crochet some of the flowers. Get the idea?

And if you’re not participating in NaNo, the challenge for you is to write a short story with the same ideas as above.

C’mon. We’re all creative, otherwise we wouldn’t be crocheters. Let’s see if we can get some crocheting into some writing!

Good luck!

Prompt: Yarrrrrrrrn!

While crafting with a few friends the other day, this question came up: When you purchase yarn, do you have a project in mind, or do you buy on impluse and save the yarn to use whenever the need arises? All four of us revealed that we’re hoarders. Some more than others, but each of us have a pretty good stash of yarn growing all around us.

What about you? Are you a yarn hoarder, who buys on impluse just because the yarn was too lushious to put down? Or are you a practical yarnie who only buys what is needed for specific projects? Is there yarn bagged, boxed, stored, shelved all over your house? Or is it neatly piled away in as few storage containers as possible? Are you addicted, or can you quit at anytime? Inquiring crochet minds want to know!

Challenge: Boo!

Halloween is around the corner so to celebrate, crochet something spook-ish, either from a pattern already out there somewhere or just your own creation. (This would be a great time to try free form!) It can be scary-scary, scary-fun, scary-cute, or not even scary at all. It’s totally up to you. Afterwards, if you’re feeling really up to the challenge, write a short story or poem to accommodate your object then share the ending result(s) with the rest of us…before the 31st. Have fun!

Prompt: A Crocheter Lives Here!

If someone who never knew you crocheted were to walk into your home, what tell-tell signs would there be to indicate that someone who loves to crochet resided there? Would it be immediately noticeable? Or would it take a little more “digging”? What evidence would they find as proof that “a crocheter lives here!”?
