    Quilting! It’s very therapeutic to cut up cloth and sew it back together. Like doing sudoku but you get a blanket at the end.

    Reading and crocheting, though not at the same time. Crocheting is helpful for stress, and not just because I often watch TV while doing it, so I feel at least somewhat productive. Except when I fall behind on a project with a deadline (a gift) and have to rush and stay up late to finish.

    My favorite craft is knitting, but I am also learning how to crochet small items, like snowflakes and flowers! I have a goal of working through a full book of different flowers.

    My favourite craft is reading. Anything else I try and do I get so caught up in it being perfect…

    I like reading, starting but not finishing knitting projects, and trying to keep up with dishes and laundry!

    Reading, of course, but I also love a good sight-seeing road trip.

    My first love is reading, but I really like to cook and bake. Yeast doughs are not my friends, yet.

    I also knit. Very slowly. My yarn stash is much larger than my ability to finish a project in any reasonable timeline. But the colors, and the softness and the dreams that I can one day knit a lace shawl…

    I love knitting and reading both so much that this conversation happens in my head almost daily: “Maybe I’ll knit. Wait. Then I can’t read. Wait. I could listen to an audiobook while I knit. Wait. Then I can’t hold the book in my hands and I love to hold a book in my hands. Okay let me pour some wine and puzzle this out.”

    This year it’s been reading, especially escapist books where people aren’t jerks. Other years it’s been crochet. I’ve also gotten into language-learning, and it seems to fit into the reading section of how I spend my time. It’s nice to have something useful to work on that feels like a puzzle.

    MaryK says:

    I used to crochet and need to get back into some creative craft. I’ve been wanting to learn to knit but am intimidated by it. Lately, I’ve been doing jigsaw puzzles while listening to audiobooks.

    Amy says:

    Knitting! Also reading, sewing, and baking. My husband and kids say that can gauge my mood/stress level by whether there’s a lot of fresh bread and muffins, or new shawls and socks.

    I like to read, crochet and gardening.

    It’s reading, but I’m also a lapsed quilter who really wants to get back into it.

    Oooooh…I lurve pretty yarn. I knit like a madwoman. It’s a great stress reliever. And who couldn’t use that with the current tsunami in Romancelandia?

    Reading… and embroidery. But I am finally having to admit that I need glasses for both.

    Reading and talking about books!

    Tried learning to knit a few times but it didn’t stick. Brandon Farris has a hilarious viral video of trying to learn knitting via YouTube tutorial. Spoiler alert: he gets all tangled up in the yarn.

    I would like to pick up a new crafty hobby that soothes my nerves and produces cute results. Remember friendship bracelets? I loved making those back in the day.

    Reading and cooking, I love both a lot!

    My favorite hobby besides reading and writing is coloring. I also have several coloring apps on my phone. That’s addicting!

    Wendy says:

    Getting my hands dirty gardening as I listen either to an audiobook or music.

    Hannah says:

    Reading! I also love to knit, although I’m not brilliant at anything complicated. I tend to knit while watching Netflix or listening to podcasts, and my mind wanders. A LOT. So scarves and blankets are the safest things to create rather than a project that requires actual brainpower…

    Steffi says:

    I love reading (duh), but recently I have also gotten back into drawing and painting, which has been one of the best decisions I made this year, hands down 🙂

    Kaitlin says:

    I’m currently knitting as I read this, because it’s one of my favorite things to do when I’m reading things online and doing other things. I also love to run, and started sewing my own clothes a little this year, and really like the process of learning something new.

    Reading and embroidery. I knit a little and would like to do more. I am trying to accept just being ok at something. And baking.

    I do some knitting, lots of reading, and volunteering.

    Reading, embroidery and building Lego.

    Laura says:

    Definitely reading, above everything else (um, except maybe eating, an activity I can easily elevate from the level of “life necessity” to “enjoyable hobby”). But also writing, baking, and when I have time for it, LEGO, board/card games, and playing The Sims. 🙂

    I can’t choose just one – reading AND knitting, just maybe not at the same time. 🙂

    Of course reading! And cooking/baking. I love trying out new recipes

    Reading, writing, & knitting. I am still learning to knit well, but I find it fun.

    Knitting! No, reading! No, baking! It saddens me that I can’t do all three at once.

    Sewing, quilting, knitting …
    sleeping, watching tv, reading …

    I like knitting while watching tv. Lately I’ve been hooked on bon appetit’s YouTube channel, which is hilarious because I don’t like to cook.
