    Hey, you could be like my cousin who got into crocheting and knitting so much that she raises her own sheep for the wool now. She was a pharmacist, but gave that up to sell her stuff.

    That is Buster, who she thought was going to die because he was so sick (since Thanksgiving) but he's now eating on his own and all is well.

    I learned to knit, crochet, and embroider and sew when I was a kid. I still continue to crochet, but I do more quilting these days. If you're new to crochet, there are many wonderful videos on Youtube. Mikey has lot of tutorials and he's easy to understand, videos are close ups and easy to follow along. I had GD watching his videos. Lesson 1 - How To Crochet - YouTube

    There's another group of videos by Teresa on Youtube. She's also very good.

    I have done knitting, crochet, embroidery, scrapbooking, sewing, counted cross stitch and photography. Some of the projects are more portable than others. During the fall and winter, I usually take knitting, crocheting, embroidery or counted cross stitch with me wherever I go. I use to have lots of time waiting for the children at various appointments to be able to do my projects. I still enjoy doing them when I get a chance.

    I tried to knit and crochet. I can't figure it out.
    I can however, breed, raise, & shear the sheep/goats. Then I can clean, card, dye, spin the fleeces into yarn. After that, it is someone else's problem. Sadly, my wheel sits idle @ Mom's house. Since I can't do anything with the yarn, I don't spin much anymore.

    I do have other hobbies, with cross stitch being the most portable. That is my go-to travel project. I have a bunch of the Santa patterns for the perforated paper. One of these days I'll have them all finished and will decorate a tree with all of them on it. One of these days...

    I love to crochet also. Have made too many afghans to count. I learned to crochet when I was ten. I went to a small country school and my spelling teacher was also the home-ec teacher. When we finished our spelling work, she taught us to crochet. Thereafter every birth and wedding warranted an afghan. I don't know if you have access to Hobby Lobby online, but I love their yarn line. It is called "I love this Yarn". Crocheting is a good traveling hobby. Enjoy!!!

    I can crochet a lil but not well
    These things, I warmly wish for you-
    Someone to love, some work to do,
    A bit'o sun, a bit'o cheer.
    And a guardian angel always near.

    I saw a video on making a basket weaved box using rolled up newspaper. I have been rolling newspaper since then. I hope this is not a new hobby.

    It is too bad we cannot crochet during the flights anymore. I did a lot of crochet work during flights.

    I knitted last year on a plane to Atlanta. Or at least I tried to knit...I was sandwiched between 2 large men.
