Looming Dragons

No video this week. At least, not one I made. But I did make something else. Two somethings else.

Hiccup (who is not hugging a tub of barbeque sauce in this picture):

Which I made using this helpful video:

That was an hour yesterday, then today I spent an hour and a half on this little guy:

He comes from this video (because there is no way I wanted to figure this out on my own):

A Hat, Half A Glove, And A Mess

That is where my christmas projects stand. Granted, the one that is a mess is only a mess because I have to weave in nine million ends when I am finished. But it is looking like a stormtrooper on the outside which is what counts. Well, two stormtroopers which is why there are so many tiny ends hanging out.

I feel like this is fairly good progress in getting everything done by Christmas. You know, as long as I actually keep working at this pace.

Christmas Present Progress

I have four presents wrapped! Granted they are (mostly) ones I bought, not ones I’m making. But, hey, I’ve bought two presents and found two others. A fifth is on the way, should arrive on Tuesday, so at least I am not waiting until the very last-minute. Black Friday hasn’t happened yet, so I’m still a bit on the early side. Plus I’m wrapping them as I get them, so I won’t be up all night wrapping them right before Christmas.

On the other side, I’ve got a hat finished, four sock ankles ready to add charted characters to (plus, you know, feet), and three stripes of a blanket that isn’t a Christmas present. I’m getting ready to cast on a pair of mitts right now. You know, unless I decide to pull out the GameBoy instead…Yeah, I’ll cast those mitts on tomorrow…
