My New Hobby

I have recently begun a
new hobby. It is knitting related so I thought I'd mention it here. I am making stitch markers. I didn't think I'd be able to manage picking up those litttle beads and slotting them onto wires as I have very unsteady hands but I found it to be creatively satisfying and fun if not relaxing. It's another craft where I don't look particularly busy so DH feels free to chatter at me with a few questions thrown in for good measure. One day last week I resigned myself to the fact that I can only work on my stitch markers when I am alone in the house. I've made quite a few of them as Christmas presents for the knitters I know. I have also discovered that with a little reshaping they make nice wine glass rings for the non-knitters. I will be peddling my stitch markers, for $1.00 each, at any venue I come across. Wish me luck.
