All of my former hobbies have become a part of my profession (which is amazing!); I've recently gotten more into cooking and baking.
Knitting, yarn-making, printing, embroidery, simple jewelry making.
My crafting music taste is all over the place depending on my mood; I love This American Life, Radio Lab, Fresh Air, and Craftypod; while crafting I watch mostly bad TV so I don't have to pay much attention, so I'm embarrassed to say!
No idea about the first thing I made, but the first thing I knit was a very experimental garter stitch scarf with all different kinds of stripes.
Accessories - hats are probably my favorite, but scarves/scarflets and mitts are great too.
I hate to box myself to one craft area, omni-crafting rocks!
