I've given up anything knit/crocheted. I love doing it, it's peaceful and relaxing and I'm OK at it, neat stitches etc - but I am SO, SLOW. It takes me weeks to make a simple dishcloth, and months for a simple scarf. I can pick up a knit hat at the thrift store for like $2, or spend months making it, hmm, no comparison there for me.
I do, however, embroider like mad. I'm making everyone's Christmas presents that way. I enjoy it and it doesn't go so slowly for me. I also am making some new prayer flags for the boy's room, and a felt garland or twelve... and I'm always doing little felt projects. Basically I make simple "line-art" designs by cutting out shapes and assembling them into picutres on felt and then sewing them down. I don't know if that makes sense. DS got a truck and a spotted mushroom, DD got a mermaid, now I'm making some autumn scenes. They come out looking pretty neat - even though I use the cheapie polyester felt, not the good wool stuff.
