My mum taught me to knit 2 years ago when I was off work for surgery. So far I've made 2 scarves, a draft excluder (badly) and a headband/ear warmer. I had a go at crochet but I cannot figure it out.
I may have another bash at it this winter. I'm very slow though so making gifts is out of the question for this year. I may be able to do it for next year though.
Fat does not make you fat. It's actually pretty important.
