Welcome to the new Yarn Flight!
I’ve made a lot of changes the site in the past couple of weeks. Yarn Flight is heading in a whole new direction. Instead of just focusing on crochet, I’m widening the focus to an exploration of creativity in general.
Fighting Creative Block
I think most of us have had times when we’ve felt creatively stifled. I know I have. Sometimes, it feels like something is missing. Other times, you know what you want to do, but the ideas just come. I’ll be looking at solutions to both those problems over the coming months.
I’ll also be looking at different ways to express ourselves creatively. Most, probably all, of these possibilities will be for beginners. For example, I’m not going to teach you how to draw people like DaVinci, but I might do a post on where to start if you want to try figure drawing. I’m interested in many forms of visual art, crafts and storytelling, so you’ll find lots of possible creative directions here.
None of this means I’ve given up on crochet. All the patterns, even the free ones, are still here. For now, they’re only hosted on Ravelry, as it’s a trusted and easy to use site. (And you don’t need to be a member or even go to the site to get the patterns.) However, I am considering adding my own shop to this site so I can add things other than patterns. I’ve got lots of ideas, so I’ll see how it goes.
