happybridetobe1988 :  I’ve recently taught myself crochet. I get to be crafty but I can also still sit and enjoy a tv show with my husband after the kid goes to bed.

Temari. Setup is a pain but then it’s mindless and looks amazing when finished. A bit like embroidery on a sphere.

I love making ring boxes. (they have kits out now for those little velvet ones) I am addicted to those.

And knitting is cool too.  I don’t actually finish anything, but boy do I know how to order patterns and wool online. 😂

Needlepoint, cross-stitch, crochet, or knitting?

I like adult paint by numbers (I’m not a natural arty person so I need the guidance but these kits online are great and always turn out good). Cross stitch is also cool. I tried to get into knitting but struggled, maybe I will give that another go though. 

skunktastic :  I just googled Temari and it looks awesome, I will definitely give it a go!

I think macrame is really cool! 

I taught myself basic graphic design and now have a little etsy shop selling wedding welcome signs and save the dates etc…

I tried to learn watercolor painting but I am not artistic enough lol

knitting is fun. i can’t do garments, but little cute things are easy and people love them. i knit little hearts and give them out to cool people i meet. i’ve had some really nifty encounters as a result.

I like carving eggs with a dremel and making dioramas and Christmas ornaments out of them.

Dream catchers are also fun to make and pintrest can offer you a million inspiration pics

I paint jewellery boxes in my spare time. Eventually my husband and I plan to make one from scratch together. For now i just pick up a cheap craft store box once every 3 or 4 months and work on it a little bit at a time.

catskillsinjune :  I’m trying to narrow down a hobby to start too, and cross stitch looked interesting. I like patterns and repetition. Question: what do you do with them when they’re finished? Lol. They’re not really my style so I doubt I’d display more than one or two pieces. Maybe a tea towel or pillow with a cute saying.  Same with crochet or knitting. Do you just give them away? Hoard them in the attic? I’m genuinely curious.

Is learning crochet hard? I’d love to make some bits like I see plenty of online but I just don’t know if it’s worth starting up, and not being able to do it!!

 

Question for knitters and crocheters – which is best?!

agirlhasnoname18 :  I prefer knitting but I taught myself at an earlier age than crochet, so maybe that’s why!
