Last couple of weeks I've taught myself to knit with hoooooge knitting needles, like......25mm! So much fun if you use the right yarn, which I didn't so got myself into all sorts of muddles. Picture to come when item is finished.
Also learnt tunisian or afghan crochet stitch, again lots of fun.
And for the beads, I learnt how to do Russian Spiral Weave. And then proceeded to make a necklace.
