Thanks for asking, but in order to keep the folders to a manageable number we try to keep them general.

I was wondering, where do I put the iPad case I made via loom knitting? In the miscellaneous folder?

Probably the safest place to put it in is miscellaneous.

Where would I put a crochet hat for a doll? Would it go under miscellaneous? I don't want to submit to the wrong folder!
