But even knowing that I’m a procrastinator and against my better judgement I think I’m actually going to try out a game plan for July to get back on the creative wagon. It’s going to be a little complicated because I’ll be doing some traveling and a family vacation this month, but maybe having a schedule of sorts will ensure that I’ll actually get something done.
First off I’m going to be participating in the Ami-Along on Ravelry! I like a number of the designers, but my financial situation is pretty sketchy so I’m not entirely sure how much I can participate with the purchased patterns, though I would really like to support some of these designers. I think I’ll allot myself at least one purchased pattern, the trouble though is picking which one. I’m kind of in love with the ridiculousness of cheezombie‘s Knitilus Nautilus, but it’s a knit pattern and while I want to learn to knit, I don’t think that’s the pattern to learn on as it’s a bit more complex than I think I want to start with. I also really love Adorably Kawaii and definitely have plans to do her freebie patterns.
Setting aside the Ami-Along I’m going to start giving myself that Ami a week project I was considering from earlier. Since I’m starting with a short week for July (i.e. I was too lazy to actually pick something before today) I’m going to focus on finishing up that MLP:FiM pattern I was supposed to finish two-to-three years ago. >.> After that I’ll just start working down my list of stuff I owe people and some of the designs I want to start working on. I’ll probably map out what I’m working on for the next month so I have something I actually have to stand by.
In other news, the thing with the drop spindle I mentioned. I’ve played around with it a bit, nothing big because I found out that A Good Yarn, an amazing store in Sarasota, is going to have a drop spindle class on August 1st! They do have another one in July, but I won’t be able to make it due to scheduling issues. So that means sometime with month I’m going to be sitting down my spindle before the class to film myself messing royally! Yay! I’ll probably also do some recording in the class if they allow it just to show any possible progress I’ve made.
I have finished up the first sleeve of the Prepster Jacket again, but that’s a boring picture so let’s end today with my cat trying to blend in with my plush collection. Trust me, he’s fluffy enough to qualify.
