Wednesday Weekly Blogging Challenge: My Favorite Hobby and Why

If you are reading this, I'm going to assume that you are a reader-- so we'll not consider my reading hobby. Everyone here could probably say it was their favorite. So, other than reading... what is my favorite hobby?

Any sort of needlework I can do with my hands. I knit, tat, crossstitch, embroider, but my all time favorite is crocheting.

My grandmother taught me to crochet when I was a little girl. I can still remember her sitting with yarn and hook in her hand while she watched television. She made fancy dresses for my Barbie dolls. So...whenever I pick up my own yarn and hook, I think of my grandmother and can still feel her love through the years.

Here is my most current project for my oldest granddaughter - hopefully I can finish it before her birthday:

What about you? What is your favorite hobby?

I've been wanting to learn that sort of stuff for ages. How long did it take you to figure out crocheting? I'd bet your granddaughter is going to love her present. It's so pretty so far.

I've been crocheting for so long, it's hard to remember. It's very relaxing...once you get the hang of it :-)

That's never been a hobby that I've felt like I could take on, but it does look like fun!
I'd love to learn to crochet. I tried knitting once and gave up, but I should try something like this again.
