Finding Inspiration

You can tell I am hitting a creative block when it comes to my 100 different hat patterns.  Somehow, I am having problems coming up with new inspiration.  Thank goodness for the monthly Hats for Sailors KAL on Ravelry or I would have nothing!  I need a kickstart.  One of the ways I am hoping to get that is Hats for Sailors and the Summer Giveaway.

Hats for Sailors on Ravelry

Usually we giveaway something every month to someone who has posted a picture of a finished hat on our Ravelry Hats for Sailors group.  This summer we are going to combine all 3 months into something a little different.  Here are the rules:

1.  You must have mailed in at least one hat to Hats for Sailors since the beginning through August 31, 2014.

2.  You must post at least one picture of a hat you have knitted between June 1st and August 31st and will be sending to Hats for Sailors for the November deadline.

3.  You must post one pattern to one of 3 discussion threads in the Ravelry Hats for Sailors group.  These groups are:
      Great Travel Knitting Hat Patterns meaning easy and/or fast
      Favorite Patterns
     Wacky Hat Patterns

Anyone who fulfills those requirements will have one chance to win one of the prizes.

All About Me

Looking to the Hats for Sailors group for inspiration will take a little time and I need something to get me started in the mean time.  Lately I have noticed that I find patterns I like and they are already in my queue.  Obviously I need to look through there for inspiration.  My queue is 17 pages long!!!  I have a short attention span and that gets too long for me to look through and I get bored before I get inspired.

Did you know you can organize your queue like you can organize your patterns?  I did take the time to sort through them and put all the hat patterns into a group with a tab.  I discovered that I have almost 90 patterns!  I was shocked and I should be able to find some inspiration there.  Now that they are all grouped together in one tab, it is only 3 pages and much easier to peruse.

I hope you will join us on Ravelry this summer and be inspired!
