I love creating things; back in the day it used to be bead-embroidery and drawing, now I'm doing cross stitch, knitting and needle-binding much more.
I've knitted a scarf, which is probably the most impressive thing I've knitted and I've made hats and gloves with needle-binding and I am trying to make socks at the moment.

And that made me wonder, what things do my fellow HOLers like to make? Both what kind of craft, but also what things have you made with that craft? I am very curious to hear about it!

I love making calligraphy and lettering cards. I got into that this summer and I have been working on my skills ever since. It's very satisfying and calming and I definitely suggest peeps try it.

Does anyone else love to calligraphy?

I so wish I could do calligraphy Shadow! My handwriting by itself is awful enough but my partner's sister is an amazing calligraphist, I think it can look amazing! I've never seen kits though to be fair, maybe I could have a go.

Gail - I love crochet, my friends all crochet and what they make is amazing. My biggest issue is...I can't do it at all! I am the same with knitting, I would love to try embroidery though but I feel that if I cant do the rest maybe I'm just not the crafty type :lol: I have heard socks are one of the hardest things to make!
