    My favorite pastime is reading, but I go in and out of knitting, too. I love the colors in these skeins.

    I’m an excellent embroiderer, an above average quilter, a middle of the road beader, and now that we have an actual yarn shop two miles from house, I aspire to be a much, much better knitter.

    I’m a bit of a serial dabbler when it comes to crafty things/hobbies. Right now I’d say makeup and reading are in the top two

    Knitting as I can do it while listening to the radio or podcasts, while watching TV and even while talking to people and I end up with something useful as well as beautiful.

    I’m 73 and since I was 6 I have been doing fiber art; crochet, knitting,embroidery, needlepoint, art quilting, and wearable art. In addition I make Judaica ritual items. I do this all as my obsession believing that I have to do the work or I’d go crazy; if I get exhibited that’s gravy; if I get awarded that’s caviar.

    Reading and knitting. Usually together. And, usually, while watching TV. I’ve done all 3 together since I was about 5 😉

    Knitting actually. But sometimes that’s frustrating because it’s difficult to read at the same time..

    It’s hard to pick a favorite! Crocheting, sewing, refinishing bookcases, and I’ve recently started painting again. And reading, of course. Thanks to SBTB my tbr list is a mile long.

    Malin says:

    Favourite hobby is obviously reading, with knitting in second place and cooking/baking in third (the latter two options can easily be combined with reading thanks to audiobooks).

    Reading, knitting, cooking. Al things where mistakes are low-impact and you can just try again.

    Karen Lauterwasser says:

    Well, there’s reading, and knitting; and reading while knitting. Then there’s cooking/baking, and reading cookbooks. And audiobook consumption throughout.

    So many books, so little time!

    video games, actually. I love reading and knitting but sometimes just killing something on a screen is what I need.

    Stitching with fibers is my favorite activity to do while watching my Chanukah candles burn. Reading is my truly favorite hobby.

    ReadKnitSnark says:

    Reading is my first love, but knitting has developed into a close second—and in some cases, equal—amour. (I’m also sort of flirting with the possibilities of crochet and embroidery… What can I say, I’m naturally polycraftual!)

    And let’s not forget the delightful affairs I am carrying on with knitting podcasts, both audio and video…

    Reading, knitting, reading, casual gaming, and reading! And occasional gluten-free baking.

    I like so many things, but with my current chronic illnesses I’ve had to stick to knitting and crocheting. I’ve really wanted upgrade my yarn and do something amazing but I haven’t been able to afford it!
