The Sunday Post #14 – My New Hobby

October 12, 2014

The majority of my spare time has always been spent on this blog, or playing The Sims, actually mostly playing The Sims. It‘s been years since I tried to, or even thought about taking up a new hobby, when one day one of my best friends started knitting. I then saw her creating loads of cool knitted gifts for us, and all of her projects looked really great. I then thought it would be a really fun new hobby to try out, and hopefully I’d be good enough to make myself a nice scarf or something. 


Originally I thought it would be something fun to do while I watched TV, I never thought it would be something I’d be good at doing. I started off with a knit your own scarf kit, and I spent hours trying to learn stocking stitch and eventually made a lumpy holey scarf. Fast forward a few rubbishly knitted items later and I’m getting pretty good if I do say so myself. I’ve made a few kindle cases, scarfs, and even some baby clothes for my friends daughter, and now I’m planning on knitting everyone Christmas gifts. 


I’ve turned into a right old little lady, but there’s nothing I enjoy more than an evening in with a cuppa, and my knitting. It’s a great new hobby, and I get to make some pretty cool stuff out of it. I’ve got loads of new projects I want to start knitting, including learning to make socks! Do you have any fun hobbies?

    I used to love knitting when I was younger (only the basics!) and found it very therapeutic! x
