I decided to start working on the horror that is my craft room.  It quite often gets used as "hurry up and hide that, company is coming!"  So it is nearly always someplace FEMA should be visiting.  Tongue

In working on the one tiny corner, I got rid of a whole bag full of "what on earth is this here for???" junk, and...5 WIP hooplas.  Adding them to my list now.  Then making more coffee and going back in.

I feel almost guilty about posting this as a completed project.  But, I was working on my craft room, and found it.  Half-finished, and it emptied out a small crafting tote by finishing it up. 

I call it a win, because it's "done" and because it gave me an empty plastic storage thingy to help organize.

It's from my experimental period of "attempting to learn to crochet".  I successfully learned to make long skinny crochet strings.  I have yet to successfully pass that stage.  So I took a bunch of them, and braided a couple together.  then I took the whole bunch of them, and knotted them together, and made this "infinity scarf".

I have also started on my list.  I couldn't sleep in this morning for some reason, so I started carving spoons.  I've finished the bowl portion for three spoons.

Your chocolate scones look delicious.  I also don't count cooking and baking as projects, simply because I never think about it.  Smiley

I'm knitting a pair of socks. I finished the first sock on Saturday, and the second should hopefully done by the weekend. Today I'm trying a new recipe, I'll count it as a project because I'm going to be tweaking the recipe a bit.

LOL!  People have been telling me that since I was 5 years old and learning with my grandmother.  I'm 42 now, and have had multiple people try to teach me.  I'm pretty sure ineptitude is where I shall remain.  Smiley

You guys are amazing...and I am adding myself to the list because I am almost done making my "suede" skirt that has been in my fabric bin for at least ten years... Hemming it up as I watch Boardwalk Empire all day! Grin

I hope to wear it tomorrow if I can find my brown boots!  They are lost in craft room clutter...

Great projects so far everyone:) 

Bushbaby I'm going to count baking as long as it's a gift for someone else. Hence the picture of my vegan banana chocolate chip muffins below! (I made them for some friends we visited on New Year's Eve). Your scones look tasty.

Dewshinedopp I think your infinity scarf is lovely - I'd be happy if I made that.
