I like to make stuff. My grandmother taught me to knit when I was 8, my father is a wood artist and my mother was a bookbinder before she decided to have a book shop instead. At various parts in my life "the arts" (primarily book arts) have been my primary source of income. At the time I wrote several instructional pieces on how to DIY in the book arts. All of the instructions that are linked from this page are free for you to download and use. Please don't sell them though. Share the love of handmade objects by sharing the instructions as well.
The Drupalicon chart for knitting socks and hats has its own page.
