When will the madness end?

Why don't you start knitting blankets and donating them? I posted a link to the linus project earlier in this thread, they take homemade donated blankets for children. There are many other organizations who do something similar as well. That way you could still knit to your heart's content and give your friends and family a break!

Kimberly, thanks for mentioning that again. I must have skimmed over it the first time.

I'll have you know that I told a couple of the gals at work that I was thinking about taking uo knitting. They laughed hysterically for a good minute. Then one of them comes out with...yeah, she's gonna make a scarf for her fish! (prolly referring to the betta I keep on my desk at work) so they started laughing again....mmm.hmmm...see if any of them get anything I ever make....

Well, phoey on them! And I quote: "Knitting is the new smoking: it's cool, artsy, gives you something to do with your hands, and goes extremely well with coffee, ..."

and I quote again:
"the number of knitters and crocheters younger than 35 has increased 400 percent since 1998"
(click here for my source)

You just tell them they're behind the times!

This will be a strech because I don't know anything about you! So here it goes. I would have to say try art (most likely starting with a pincle and a drawing book from your local Hobby Lobby or something), or Puzzels. I know alot of people that love to do puzzels.

Just my 2 cents & I hope this helps

I do actually love puzzles Epaulette Shark. I need a place to do like a thousand piece puzzle. My boyfriend is renovating our house right now, so I will have to wait a bit till I have an area big enough to work on.

odobenus, those are great statistics/facts! Thanks!

I don't know if you have a green thumb, but house plants are a wonderful hobby. And then there's bonsai. Although, in my house, bonsai is a spectator sport. I bought the books and the plants and now, I watch Trevor do all the trimming and shaping
