When I was growing up, my mother was a serial crafter and she brought me along with her. For a few months we'd be rug hooking, then we'd move onto ceramics. Along the way I'd learn to crochet, embroider and origami. Sure, eventually I'd fixate on knot tying, but I never lost the idea that, if I wanted to, I could just buy a few supplies and pick up any craft.
These are my adventures in non-knotty crafts (knotty adventures are detailed elsewhere) with a heavy shopping focus because, unfortunately, I love gearing up more than finishing. (Note to the uninitiated, an Unfinished Object is a UFO).
