Chicks with Sticks

My wonderful friend (find her A to Z challenge over at Creative Therapy) gave me this awesome Chicks with Sticks Guide to Crochet for my birthday a couple of weeks ago. I've dabbled more with knitting than crochet, but I'm really excited to give this a go and make some of the items in the book.

With lots of projects in the pipeline, finding time for a new hobby can be really difficult! But the great thing about knitting or crochet is that once you have the basics under control you can just chill out in front of the TV with your needles and let your hands do all the work.

I'd love to hear about any new hobbies that you have recently taken up, or are thinking of taking up! What has been stopping you if you haven't already started? Leave me a comment below :) Thanks for visiting!

  3. I love crocheting while watching TV, makes it seem like not such a waste of time to be sitting around :-) Good luck learning! It's lots of fun!

  4. I have been a crochet girl lately. I have too many hobbies to list, but lately, I've been on the couch crocheting.

  5. No new hobbies here. I have way too many already. :-)

    1. I love it! I have my crochet needle in hand as we speak...well I did have to put it down to type this! But's keeping my occupied while I try and block out my nerves about tomorrow...
