How long will it take me to crochet this?

Namaste friends!

Gifting season is fast approaching and since we are already in October I am sure you are frantically crocheting/knitting/painting or crafting whatever you are best at. :)

Handmade gifts are any day preferable to store bought ones. But very often we are hesistant to start a handmade project, and there could be various reasons for that;

a) you are a newbie crocheter
b) you have a large family which means tons of gifts to make!
c) you have very little time for crochet given your busy schedule
d) you have a tough time deciding what to make.

Of course there could be tons of other reasons too.

So, when I came across this wonderful fun calculator at that will solve the problems listed above, I knew I had to share it with you.

This lovely calculator tells you exactly how much time it will take to crochet a particular project! 

What? You are a beginner crocheter? You can spare only 2 hours per day?

No problem. As you can see below, this calculator takes into account various factors like your level of crochet expertise, the number of hours you can spare per day and has a wide range of projects to choose from. 
Also  has a ton of free patterns for you to try.

I urge you to try out this calculator and, dive right in and get crocheting. Maybe this year you can make that warm shawl for Granma or a lovely hat for someone special.

Do let me know if you try it out and whether you found it helpful. 

And while you are at it try these free crochet patterns on my blog. As well as these easy patterns on Ravelry and Etsy.

So, Happy Crocheting and I hope you make tons of crochet gifts this year for your loved ones. :)

Waiting for Inspiration...?

...Then you will be waiting forever!

Hello friends, how are you? Eagerly looking forward to the new month?  I know I am, as hubby's birthday is on 28th of August.

I am afraid I have not been posting as much as I want to, and I can give umpteen excuses for that. And that is what they actually are...just silly excuses. Because, I firmly believe that if you really want to do something you have dozens of "reasons" for doing it, but if you don't want to do it then you have hundreds of "excuses".

Just when I was thinking up an "excuse" to begin this post... you know, like the weather was dull, my photos were bad, my neck was acting up etc, explain my tardiness, I came across this video which shut me up for good. Wondering what I am babbling about? Then you must watch this video. I have already shared it on my Facebook page, and I thought I should share it here too in case you are not a fan of my page.

Please click on the image to see the video.

Did you watch the video? Let me know if the link is not working.

I find this woman to be really remarkable. Picking up a craft/skill you already know is one thing, but to actually learn something new after losing one's eyesight is simply fantastic!! What courage and determination this woman has! She has motivated me to once again try my hand at sewing and tatting.... two things that I always felt I will not be able to do.

So, if you have always been wanting to learn something new, but never have because of "no time", "I don't know how", "I can't do it" or "I am not good enough".........I hope this video pushes you in the right direction.

Did you enjoy this video? Let me have your comments. Yes, go on write to me, make my day. I will be back soon with my latest projects (minus excuses). LOL

"Til then, keep crafting and have fun.  :)
