OT : Other Crafts or Hobbies?
I thought it would be interesting to see what other people's crafts and/or hobbies were (other than knitting, since we all have that in common ). I do all sorts of crafts such as latch-hook, cross-stitch, plastic canvas, crochet, and beaded suncatchers. One of my main hobbies (besides those listed above) is training horses.

I switch over to scrapbooking in the summer. Just bought myself a desk just for scrapbooking. We'll see how long it remains uncluttered without misc junk.
We're all adults here. Wait, when did that happen?!?! And how do we get it to stop?!

I'm also into photography. Here's a link to my photos. I also like to read. A LOT! And I play on the computer.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

Other than knit, I crochet, bake and make cards.

im not crafty, but ive been obsessed with art since before i can remember. im just not talented. knitting is something that doesnt require an innate talent, other than maybe spatial relations, so i can finally do soemthing pretty.

im also obsessed with music. again no talent for it, bvut i love everything from guy clark to anthony braxton to skullflower to madonna

Here's my list.
Crochet, Sew, Bake, Cook, Ballet, Write, Read, and right now College and Scholarships Apps seem as much a hobby as anything else for all the time they take up!!!

I cut everything out crafty wise, so now I say:knit, quilt and scrapbook. If I DO take on something else, it's a short term project that can take only one sitting or a couple days (weekend)...I also POGO <-----NOT good....rofl....

Well... my kids are definitely not a hobby. Maybe they are a craft? Yeah! Parenting is my other craft!

Hobbies? I have my Harley in the kitchen and too many books to count all over the rest of the house. My budget is tapped out for any more hobbies.

When I don't have classes that require massive amounts of reading and in the summer, I read a lot. Other than that, I'm like Jan in the playing on the computer category. I accidently spend hours playing the Sims. I used to write quite a bit, but I don't so much anymore. Same with photography, until I either bother to get darkroom access or save up the $$$ for a digital SLR. As for other crafts? I have a box about the size of my knitting stash box full of beads and hemp and papers and charcoal pencils and pastels and Sharpies and glues and everything. I like to consider myself just "generally" crafty, since I can't stick with one thing and I don't do anything all that complicated. My roommate and I call that "crafternooning." :D

Baking, cooking, reading, writing, singing, guitar-playing, and weight-lifting are my main other hobbies - all of which I seem to be doing much less of ever since I got addicted to knitting.

In terms of other crafts, I used to cross-stitch and I recently learned embroidery, but I don't do either one very much. I am currently gearing up to relearn how to sew.

And pre-children, hiking and camping were major hobbies. I miss them and hope to get back out there once I feel able to manage two little boys in the woods!

Oh, and I also spend an inordinate amount of time online.
