I'm wondering if any of you knitters are making and sharing non-knitting projects on Craftster.  Where else do you have projects listed?

Am I the only one who is an omnivorous thing-maker?  I want to know how to do and make everything!

I have a sewing machine, and I know how to use it

Well, besides hand knitting, I'm also a machine knitter. I also crochet, sew, do embroidery, hand and machine.  I know how to tat, but i've never made anything.  I used to do a lot of cooking and baking.  I garden and play with the grandchildren and my little dog.

Eat, sleep, pee.  Oh yeah, I work too!

Every day may not be a good day to die, but every day is a good day to eat pancakes.

I'm pretty new on here and have only posted one finished knitting project, but I like to do a lot of other crafts too. I recently taught myself to crochet so I'm looking forward to doing more of that. I also like to do scrapbooking, sew, and cross-stich (occasionally!). And I recently bought a book on quilting and I WILL make a quilt one day (like before I die...) Smiley Right now I live in a one-bedroom apartment so the craftiness has to be somewhat limited. I can't wait until I move into a house where I can have a craft ROOM to spread out all my junk. How fun would that be?!?  Cheesy

i dont really post pics of finished fos (how many pics of my sock sdo ya waant to see? lol)

past primarily knitting and spinning, and can crochet, dye stuff bright colors Smiley,  weave, pottery, tat, macrame (and all knots realted to it and anything boating related too Smiley), painting, drawing, some felting, leatherwork, woodburing, sewing, quilting, cooking.  O yea and i also do the occasional jewellery design (quite well if i say so myself) and make chainmaile.

I only really knit and spin now though (my real loves anyways- i like the others, especially chainmaile, beading, and metal work- but they just dont quite compare!)  ive been banned from all the others (cept cooking, and most especially banned from crochet and chainmaile!)  since they put pressue and make me bend my wrists (carpel tunnel fun, plus tendonitis).  Once Im allowed to do other stuff again I really want to get back to my chainmaile and do some more felting, but it may be awhile. If it wasnt for art class i wouldnt even oaint or draw (though i dont really like to anyways).  I will be doing some illicit beading- just simple stuff, none of my complex peyote type stuff- if i do a craft fair soon to round out my yarns.

Craftiness must be in my genes.  Along with knitting, I crochet, sew, make costumes, stencil, decoupage, embroider, draw, paint, work with clay, make jewelry, and do photography.  I've posted some of my projects in a couple of the different message boards around here.

Sewing and knitting I've been doing the longest, I think I started knitting first when I was 8 and then learned to sew by hand and on machine a bit later.  These two I believe are my favorites since I love making my own clothes and they serve as a self expression for me.  But I think I do more knitting now since I'm in college and it's a lot easier to haul my knitting up than bring my sewing machine!

yay for multi-craftsters!  well, yay for craftsters in general Wink
i've been sewing since i was a little kid - come to find out that my mother's grandfather was a patternmaker. 

so, i post some on clothing and purses.
i started beading since being on craftster, though i've only posted once in jewellry.
i've been crocheting for a little over a year, but find knitting the easiest to take on the subway. 

i LIVE for FABRIC and YARN.  my mother calls me from massachusetts when joanns has a good sale or to get things that i can't get inexpensively in nyc.  she's the worst kind of crafty enabler Cheesy

So, I wonder, are we posting all over craftster, or just in knitting?

i bike, build bikes, invest in bike parts, and generally just bike around.

biking and knitting i have never done together at once, though.

Actually I don't think I ever posted any of my knitted FO.
But there is a couple of my sewing projects that are on here (i'm a sewing maniac) and I also am in the process of learning to spin yarn.
I also paint, crochet, make candles, cook, etc.
