What ideas do people have for starting a hobby? I feel like I don't actually do anything for enjoyment. Just the usual. Housework. Work. Cooking. Would love a hobby. But don't know what!

I knit and sew, would love to be able to crochet but not mastered it yet!

I crochet, it’s easy enough to put down mid row and you only need a ball of wool and hook smile but it does keep me sane!
I do wish I could knit but I’m just not that coordinated!

I started papercutting last year and just ordered my first set of knitting needles. Havent knitted since I was little and looking for something fun that I can take away on holidays.

Papercutting is enjoyable but can hurt my back after spending several hours leaning over a table. Maybe I need a better set up smile

I do a lot of cross stitch - a lot of the kits come with everything you need to get started. I find it really therapeutic and easy to pick up and put down smile

Just be warned it's quite fidgety. But I love doing it.

I love crocheting it's really easy I picked it up from YouTube. I have been crocheting for 18 months I made most of my Christmas presents this year and anything I make is a little bit unique and special it's lovely to make something for friends/ family.

I watched a couple of YouTube videos on crocheting and still can't seem to get my mind around it! Appears to be quite a few kind of stitches?

Bella coco on YouTube, her absolute beginners videos. I learnt from her and i’ve only been crocheting for a few weeks and have a stack of granny squares.

I’m doing up a huge dolls house i bought on ebay, but i don’t expect anyone else to find that interesting except me grin

Otherwise, i cross stitched an advent calendar that was supposed to be done by baby’s first christmas but was actually up for her fourth blush, and i’m finally getting back into reading which i have missed.

I've just started making cards - loving it so far

@MashedSpud and it was easy enough to follow? I would love to make some blankets out of granny squares!
