I figured there might be some amount of folks here that dabble with handwork and /or crafts, so here’s a thread! Normal forums rules apply, but make sure that when you post stuff you also comment on someone else’s work in a constructive fashion. Helps keep things moving, I feel.
I started learning how to knit about a year and a half ago entirely because I thought it would be helpful if I could better assist the 1st grade class I was working with (since they were just learning as well). Turned out I kinda love doing it, and I knit my first scarf a couple months later and have been diving deeper and deeper since. Pretty jealous of the opportunity these kids have to learn this in school, because I sure as hell would’ve loved keeping my fidgety self busy.
My most recent completed project was a thneed I made as a prop for a class play (I assist with a 2nd grade class). It was fun, and I learned a lot!
Here’s what I’m currently working on: a blanket designed to look like the Red Room from Twin Peaks (because the new season has me too excited to just stop at watching episodes). I’m very happy with it so far, and excited to see how it looks when I’m done. Can’t wait to use it!
