It's time for August 2009's craft update. :)
I haven't done much work on the clay dragon I've been working on, though I have managed to get it to the point where it just needs a few finishing touches to be finished. I'm planning on sorting it out this coming weekend, so should have a photo of it for September's craft update. All being well I should also get it - and the ducks - painted before the end of September too. Kelly's going to help me do that part. I'd like them painted, but that part is obviously quite difficult for me to do by myself.
Anyway... I finished knitting the scarf I was making just a few days in to the month - as I said I would - so here is a photo of it.
As I said, it's part of a set I'm making. I also said I would be making a start on the hat this month. As it turns out though, I've already finished the hat. So, here's a photo of that too.
I'm now working on the gloves for the set, and am actually quite pleased with how they're going. I've already almost finished one of the gloves. I'll be working on finishing the gloves over the next week or so, and am hoping to be well on the way with the next item before September is over.
I still have a small list of items I want/need to get done for people for Christmas, and when those are done I'll be starting the items for those of you who signed up for the handmade giveaway thing. So, it looks as though I have plenty of craft projects to keep me busy for some time. :)
I'm actually ahead of the schedule I set myself for craft projects though, since I didn't expect to even have the hat done yet, let alone be so far with the gloves. And the gloves are easier than I expected them to be. Going to have to get someone to take me to the library so I can get some audiobooks to listen to while I work on the items... I always seem to do more when I have something to listen to, and I'd like something new to listen to. There's nothing wrong with the audiobooks I have, but it would be nice to have something I haven't already listened to. I haven't had anything new to listen to for a couple of months, so I think I've been plenty patient.
Anyway, I'm starting to get off the topic this post is meant to be about, so I think it's time for me to end this post and hit that "publish" button. So... That's it for this month's craft update. :)
