I personally make amigurumi. Do you know what those are? They are little crocheted critters, people, things, etc. Right now I am working on my Christmas favor for friends, coworkers, and family. Last year I did tiny gnomes. This year I am doing tiny snowmen. They are ridiculous and so are their accessories. I also loom knit.
By the way, I relearned how to crochet via the internet. YouTube is full of tutorials that show you every thing that you need to know if you ever wanted to learn again. :)
