No, this is instead an extension of my post about being an old soul. But I guess I should back up a little. You see, I have this nasty habit of collecting crafty hobbies. I'll stick with one religiously for a few months to a year, and then I'm off to the next big thing.
Currently I'm all wrapped up in crocheting. And while I would love to say that I'm making cool Mario and Pokemon characters like Wolf Dreamer or mini-ninjas like Rheatheylia, I'm not.
This is where the old soul part come in. I'm crocheting things like scarves and afghans and all those things that your granny might have made you. I mean, I actually make granny squares, too!
But it really is a rewarding hobby. Here are some of the reasons I've stuck with it for a few years now (although I've dabbled in other areas):
- You can do it while watching TV.
- The only limit is your budget on yarn and your patience to search for free patterns.
- People are really impressed when you show what you've made.
- You can help out lots of charities with your creations (believe me, just google "crochet for charity" and you'll be shocked at all the options.)
