January is National Hobby Month and it seems that thanks to the pandemic more people than ever are taking up a new or old hobby.
Back before Christmas, 91.5 Cochrane Now was happy to volunteer for the Christmas Hamper program put on by the Cochrane Activettes.
While we were filling hampers, I saw that there were handmade scarves, touques and mitts donated. I thought to myself hey, that's something I could maybe do!
So I went home rummaged to the back of my spare room closet and found my knitting needles.
While I have knitted before, it's always about relearning as I take long breaks in between projects.
I think I did an afghan once which took about four years. My family truly celebrated when it was completed.
So, I'm hoping that I will be able to complete the scarf and add a matching touque before Christmas next year! Lots of time, I've got eleven months!
Have you rediscovered an old hobby or found a new one?
We would love to hear about your projects. :)
