My hobbies are craft projects, mainly knitting and crocheting. I also do counted cross stitch, and going to do punch needle again. When I first started knitting and crocheting, I taught myself by buying how to books, and following them step by step to learn the different stitches that might be used. Most of the things I have done is crochet baby things for expectant mothers. I gained an enormous blessing by doing for others, and they were blessed by me doing for them. Hobbies give me something to do when I am not on here, and while I am watching tv. Hobbies also let me work with my hands as I enjoy doing that as well.

I do puzzles as well, as I have a lot of puzzle books. I dont read all that much, except for the bible as I read it everyday. I love to knit and crochet, as I love making things.

@rosekiss I like reading the Bible too. I wish I could knit and crochet but I don't have the talent. On the other hand, my mother is a terrific at crocheting. She crochets pillow covers, blankets and pot holders.

@Micmac crocheting really isn't that hard to learn. I taught myself, and if I can do it, any one can.

I love knitting, but I have never learned to crochet. I would like to learn it one day. I have many different hobbies. I read a lot and I spend a lot of time online. I write short stories and poems. I like to draw and paint, and I have also done some decoupage. I love music. I listen to many different types of music and I play the keyboard. My pets are also one of my hobbies: We have a cat, a dog, a guinea pig and 5 rabbits.

@rosekiss It is great to have hobbies. Right now my husband and I are renovating our new house and I don't have much time for my hobbies, but I am sure that will change in the future.

@Porcospino Sounds like you will be keeping busy for awhile. That is why I have hobbies, as I lieve alone, and they help with the loneliness as well.

I don't do a lot of cross stitching, but when I do, it is counted cross stitch, which can be very time consuming and tedious. I work on it for awhile, then put it down, to do something else, as I can't do it continuously.

@rosekiss I love to knit while I'm watching TV. I found a super easy pattern for knit hats a few years ago, and I think I've made a couple hundred of them so far. Gave them all away to family, friends, and charities.

I du knitting and crochet in my spare time. Mostly I will do it at night while wathing netflix or tv as it really relaxes me. I haven't been doing it in the day time though, but I might in the winter as it will be colder, and the yan won't seem sticky and it won't make me itch. During the summer it was just to hot and unbearrable to work with yarn.

You have servel hobbies too, I see, and knitting is one of them.That is so cool. I applaud men that are willing to take up the hobby. I guess you can say that mylot is a hobby, but a different one in the fact that we earn from it. Most hobbies, we just do in our leisure time, and they are just for our personal lives.

I like making things for others, as the photo I posted shows. I had made that alphabet blanket for a newborn in our church. The mother was so appreciative of it too. I never charge anything, as it is my personal ministry of the church to make layettes for newborns. I enjoy doing it, and havve never nor will I ever ask money for them.

@sugartoes I taught myself how to crochet, from a learn how book. It was confusing at first, but I finally did get how to crochet, as there are lots of stitches to learn. I enjoy crocheting very much, as I prefer it over knitting.

Those are very nice hobbies. Making things to me is a special thing as homemade items seem to be moore wanted then what you buy in the stores. When ou make things you put our crafsmanship into them, and they will end up looing even better tha what you buy from the manuafacture.

it is great that you want to be there for your son, and whatever he wants to do, you will support him. My son never has done any hobbies, but my daughter is taking after me, as she is crocheting. I taught her when she was younger, and she really caught o fast, and has since made a lot of things, for the different holidays, and right now, she is making things for Christmas to give as gifts. Handmade items always go over big.
