Your other hobbies??
Do you have any other hobbies besides knitting?

I'm an avid scrapbooker and have been for many many years. I also crochet a tiny bit (my step mother is REALLY great at it). I've tried my hand at candle making, cross stitch, and also a few other little things (such as spool knitting), but my two main "hobbies" are scrapbooking and more recently -- knitting.

Do you have any others?

I just picked up knitting, so I could file that under "recent acquisition".

As for others....reading, writing, cooking, crocheting, drawing, tattoo designing, mask making, basic web design, stage and voice acting. And although it is more a discipline than a hobby per se, I did martial arts for a few years.

I would looooove to learn beading, scrapbooking and woodworking

I've been cross stitching for over 16 years. For all that time it was my main passion. Since teaching myself to knit, it's taken over.

I also do feltwork, some scrapping (although not often at all), stamping, card making and more. I've done a few floral things, but it's not my strong point so I tend to not do it often.

Other than crafting, my "hobby" is reading. Ds & I visit the library once a week and I always take out at least 5-7 books. I even read when I am knitting! lol

For a long time, messing around with computers and computer games were my "hobbies". Then I got a job in the IT field and didn't want anything to do with computers in my free time. Then I picked up quilting and did that for a couple years. Now, I found knitting...

The other day, DH asked me why I didn't quilt so much any more. After thinking about it for awhile, I realized that it was because I can't quilt with my friends. Since we've moved, all my friends are from my wonderful knit group. Knit group meets officially 2x week and unofficially whenever a couple of us have nothing else to do. It's so easy to grab my knitting bag and run down to the LYS when a friend calls. How could I do that with quilting? LOL

I loved to do cross stitch, but after my cataract surgery, I have trouble seeing well enough. I' was only 42, got cataracts in both eyes and had to have them done. If I'd lived a generation or two ago, I'd be visually impaired or blind now, so I'm not complaining. I do love to play piano duets, if I can find someone who can KEEP UP with me!!!! My daughter is getting close.

sfavereau, I'm the same. I used to love playing around with the computer but since I got my degree in IT and actually started working in the field, I no longer have any desire to do anything at all with my computer at home. lol

I admit that I still do a bit of graphic design/web design and whatnot but that's about as far as it goes anymore.

You say: "5 months until I arrive home in Wisconsin!"

Where in WI? I'm only about an hour south of the state line.

I was an avid sewer/taylor 'til my back said no more sitting at the sewing machine. Sewing for daughters was wonderful. Even pants and dress shirts for hubby.

I started bird watching 20 years ago. Hiking is no longer an option, but we did a lot of landscaping to attract birds to our yard and it's a hobby easily done from the deck or window now.

I garden to attract butterflies and their larva. Hummingbirds like the same flowers.

I crochet too, but that's harder on the wrists, so I always have a knitting project going.

Oh yeah, I have a modest doll collection. My favorites are my German made dolls. I like to knit for the dolls, as they don't out grow their knits, get dirty (only dusty) and no "spit up".

I have quite a few hobbies. Mainly I tend to knit and crochet though. I enjoy scrapbooking and sewing, so those are the two you will usually find me doing if I don't have a needle or hook in my hand. Other pasttimes are the computer, and math/logic puzzles... and watching LOTS of CSI.

I have tried almost every craft out there lol but knitting is the only one I've stayed with and will finish most things I start.. I use to sell my emboridery work at a local shop and that burnt me out on it.. I like to craft when I want too.. not sitting up half the night to meet a quota lol.. I've tried cross stitch, crochet, quilting (my mom's favorite hobby), I like to coffe dye items and create new things.. by taking one thing and coming up with a decorative purpose with it.. I've tried melting spoons into shapes.. till dh got worried about me using the stove and the house :rofling: ... tried plastic canvas, latch hooking, drawing.. painting...

I also like to read and watch classic movies..
