I make jewelry, does that count? My passion is making stitch markers! That's KNITTING JEWELRY!

I used to cross-stitch like a maniac...and sew...and stamp (mainly cards) but knitting has taken over.

I have a girlfriend that gets perturbed with me if I haven't read a book she recommended. Ah shucks.
I like to read...but what do you have at the end of a novel?

If I watch a movie, I can knit at the same time. Well, sorta watch a movie.
My husband complains about me and movies and knitting at the same time! he he
I can't watch a NEW MOVIE and knit...but old movies are perfect!

Anyway, thanks for starting this thread! It's interesting!

And I love the cards that butlersabroad posted! Very crafty, indeed! Great work! Thanks for sharing!

I used to have people ask to buy my cards...but some of the stamps are copyright protected.
You have to be sure about your stamps. So I contented myself with gifting my cards.

Recently knitting has taken over my hobby life. However I still like to read, learned to needlepoint at a class last summer, and occasionally still crochet(trying to finish my DD crocheted afghan).
Though not really what I'd call a hobby, I love to travel. Just tell me when and where and I'll be there(at least I'll be there if I can get the time off work. Can't wait til I can retire!!)

I just spent 45 min. putting a post together for this thread, but I guess since it was my first post the forum wouldn't let me include the photo attachments.

Oh well, live and learn. This is a perfect thread for my introduction. I'm retired now and have built a 1,600 sq.ft. Workshop to create and promote hand crafting, I am also a volunteer at the Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park demonstrating various skills.

I'm a musician/craftsman that has spent 30 years working on life support equipment at a 1,500 bed county hospital in south Florida.

I saved the first post I put together and if this one works I'll try resubmitting it a little later on. I've got a leather project I have to wrap up today so I'm off to the workshop.

Sorry your original post didn't show up, hushnel. Post a few more just to be sure and then you can put your photo on here. We'd love to see what you've been up to.

And welcome to KH!

Well it looks like the original thread can be posted now, so the following would have been my first post "o)

I think this my be my first post, this is a good place for it. I have picked up a few crafts along the way. Knitting is what I do after the sun sets and I close the shop up. Knitting is also so portable it fills in when I can't be in the shop.

The shop is new, and on the 21.2 acre Florida Cracker Farm we bought and moved into last year, after I retired. The house was built in 1886, the workshop is modern concrete block with a metal roof.

My other skills and hobbies are based around a mixture of wood and metal work, I like challenge so I've tried a buch of stuff over the years some stuck, some didn't. The didn't stick stuff just was not enough of a challenge.

I've been doing leather work for a while, started off with a interest in Historical Interpritation, which is the driving motive in many of the crafts I fool around with.

This is a bag I made out of 8-9 oz tooling leather.



This is a combination of my leather work and knife making.



Some wood working,





This was my first instrument project,



Cigarbox guitar I built for my buddy Albert Castiglia,




Haven't finished this Cigarbox Charkha yet,



I also spin and weave, throw pottery on a wheel, rope work, jewelry making, inlay, blacksmithing, basket weaving, soap making, candle making. It may seem like a lot but much of it is either the same skill sets or related. I am a bit attention deficit, the only way I can get anything accomplished is to have a dozen or so projects going consecutively. It's better than taking a bunch of drugs to solve the problem, yeah , I could have been a rocket scientist or brain surgeon if I was diagnosed and treated as a child but then I wouldn't be me or live on this beautiful country farm now.

My back yard.



The cluttered mess that is my home,
