    My favorite craft is knitting. As the saying goes, I knit so I don’t kill people. 🙂

    I also enjoy crocheting and letter art.

    I read and crochet. It’s like this package was made for me 🙂

    My fav passtime at the moment is making korowai – which is a type of weaving. I am still learning so have only just started an actual wearable piece but it’s a great time sink and I end up with something beautiful to give away or keep at the end.

    I’ve been getting into embroidery this year and loving it. My next project will hopefully be stitching a Baby Yoda for display. I’ve got all my floss at the ready now that I’ve finished my Christmas knitting.

    I like knitting, having made costumes (but not the making of them), and photography.

    Reading – voraciously, and knitting… slowly. (Not the best knitter, but I love it!)

    When not reading I make dolls. The porcelain kind.

    Jennifer Beyer says:

    I love crafting in general. I’m always trying something new. I also love reading. I recently discovered all of the crafting videos on YouTube so now I have that too!

    Reading definitely. And also baking and crocheting! I recently completed a happy little squid over my Christmas downtime.

    I like crochet to relax while watching GBBO. It’s cozy comfort for my brain.

    Gisela says:

    I love to crochet, scrapbook and read. I learned to crochet from my mom, I asked her to teach me while she was going through chemotherapy. It helped pass the time and brought us closer together. After she passed, crocheting brought me comfort. I started scrapbooking as a way to document our family life. And of course reading, at least for me is pure escapism!

    Reading almost always wins out, but I also like to draw in pencil and also “paint” in pan pastels. I was just working on a Santa today.

    I’ve been cross stitching a lot the last few months, plus reading/listening to audiobooks on the regular. Gotta keep those hands busy!

    I used to crochet but I was terrible at it. Right now, it’s just reading 🙂 thanks for sharing!

    Lisa says:

    Reading is definitely #1. Knitting and reading is second and I’ve recently picked up spinning. I can’t spin and read which is probably good for me!

    I love baking short bread, especially cardamom/cinnamon shortbread and chocolate dipped shortbread. Also, writing.

    Reading, gardening and crocheting

    Knitting, running, reading. I’d love to be doing more writing if my imagination would cooperate again.

    Marlene Pressner says:

    reading, of course, but trying to get out of my comfort zone, so . . . I inherited a yarn stash from a friend of mine, I added my stash, and I invited friends over to start a knitting group. we are now knitting up the yarn into hats for charity!

    Rose says:

    Sewing although I’d like to get back into knitting!

    I love to read but it’s a necessity, like breathing 🙂
    I volunteer to foster cats and dogs – wonderful hobby that involves snuggles!

    I knit while watching tv or listening to audiobooks… but for mindless enough knitting projects, I can knit and read my kindle!

    Posting again to say all these comments inspired me to dig out my stash of embroidery floss and start on a (small) knotted friendship bracelet. My hands still remember how to do it after all these years. Might pick up a cross stitch project too. Thank you, bitchery!

    Reading is my favorite pastime, but lately I’ve taken up cross stitch again, after about a 15-year (!) hiatus.

    Sarah says:

    I’ve taken up cross-stitch again after not doing any since high school too many years ago to count. I started after Christmas last year when my future sister-in-law picked me up a Hello Kitty Cross Stitch Kit.
    I am currently working on a guess what corgi butt cross stitch.
    If anyone is interested here is the pattern I found online:
