Thinking on a Thursday

So it's been another week already. The weeks are kind of just flying quickly around now aren't they? It's like the older we get, the faster time seems to move. There are so many things to do and my list just seems to get longer day by day...well my crochet list. Everyday I think of something new that I want to make. I add it to the bottom of my list and hopefully I'll get there one day.

Then my list often gets reshuffled as different types of inspiration hit me.

I also add to my queue other designs that I purchase to support other crocheters in the community. This little robot is a freshstitches.com design.

So where do I get my inspiration from?

Well, it's quite obvious that I'm a very fandom oriented crochet designer. I rarely come up with corchet patterns of my own which is why I'll probably never release a book of my own because I don't think I'm really that great at coming up with original ideas. Although, one day I might be able to? Maybe a cute little book of animals or some sort.

Right now though, I love making things that I see. My first and foremost goal is always that I want to release one crochet pattern for every single pokemon. I know this is probably impossible considering they'll keep adding new regions and generations but it's a goal that I really want to try. I also don't want to release chibi versions. I want to make all of them as close to the original as possible. Now this ...is probably kind of impossible because whenever I make things they turn out cute.

The legs are a little shorter than they should be, and some of the proportions turn slightly different but I guess that's just a style factor of mine. But I want to try to be true, as much as I can, to the original designs. I will also want to make chibi versions of a lot of things but I do want to create one true to the original pokedex design of each pokemon.

The pokemon I have made the most of....umbreons. I've made five..or was it six..of them to date? Each of them have gone to their own home. But I'm going to be making more! At least one more so I can note down the pattern and release that one.

I also get inspiration from the people around me. Everyone feeds me ideas of cute things. That's how Merengue came to be, because one of my friends knows that "pink" and "food" are two things that will inspire me to create. And if it's cute, there's a big chance that "Mei will make". I have a really big admiration for people like Twinkiechan who are able to design such cute things and make so many people happy.

I wish I could be more like that~!

Anyway, it's been a while since I released a pattern! And tomorrow is another Friday! :)

My goal for this week is to be more inspired by the things around me and see if I can create something cute on my own!
