Inspiration is all around you.  I find that for myself,  natural surroundings and historic landcapes inspire my knitting and crochet in subtle ways.  Color choices, textures and shapes are all influenced by my locations.  Do you live in a rural or urban area?  Perhaps you are somewhere in between or travel often.  Are you inspired by an old oak tree, Morrocan nights, or gritty and intense big cities?  Do your surroundings seem to have a lot of energy and excitement or are they calm and soothing.  Try giving this idea some thought as you knit or crochet this week.  Embrace wherever you are and consider how you can incorporate your environment into your projects.

Here are some free knit and crochet projects that may inspire you.
