I found myself aimlessly wandering around Facebook this morning but soon found that there was purpose to it after all! Sometimes it's easy to get caught up in your current CAL or design project, but it's worth taking the time to go back to basics and learn or brush up on some basic and not so basic techniques. I think it helps in getting the creative juices flowing again.
The first ones I came across are actually mainly knitting tutorials, but I find that knitting demonstrations make me start thinking about how to achieve a similar effect through crochet.
Juniper Moon Farm has a great round up of tutorials, including one on how to crochet an i-cord.
The Crochet Geek has an amazing collection of crochet tutorials, many of them geared towards beginners.
And this Pinterest board says it all: Beginner Crochet Tutorials
Please visit my Many Creative Gifts YouTube channel for a growing collection of crochet tutorials too.
So, I hope these resources will help you try some new crochet stitches and techniques and brush up on some that you hadn't thought about in a while!
