Wanna know what my hobby is? My hobby is "Kind of". Huh? What do you mean you've never heard of that? Sure you have... I'll explain. Here are some of my hobbies...
I crochet. Kind of. I'm ok at it. I'm pretty much self-taught. I mean my mom does it, and my grandma does it too, so when I was young, I mean really young like 6 or so, they taught me how to crochet. I stopped doing it for a really long time, then tried my hand at it. I made a scarf. It was a thing of beauty. I stopped there.
I cross stitch. Kind of. I did a couple things, have some nice pieces, and some that I'd love to finish, but I got stuck on a piece I was doing, and sat it down to come back to later and never did.
I scrapbook. Kind of. I have some stuff to do a couple pages that the kids gave me for either my birthday or mother's day. I never even opened it... I would love to though, cause it looks like fun and the end result is always soooo cool.
See... My hobbies are Kind of.
I do love to take pictures, but I take forever to get the film developed. It took me 5 years to get pictures developed from our vacation to the happiest place on Earth.
I love to read, but it takes me forever to finish a book. I've been reading the same book for almost 3 weeks now. I think I'm on the 4th chapter. They are not unusually long chapters.
Now do you understand? That's what I meant by Kind of.
So, what would you expect someone with a hobby of Kind of to do? Yep! You guessed it. I started a new hobby. Yeah, like I have the time for that...
One of my good friends knits. Actually a few of my good friends knit. I love looking at the stuff they do. The great things they create. So, I got pointed in the direction of a great knitting site, and got some tips on what to look for in a learning to knit book, $25 later (shhh... don't tell hubby... lol!) and I have some basic supplies. Got the book, a pair of needles, a skein of yarn. I'm set.
This Christmas, everyone gets a scarf!
