i need to learn to balance my hobbies.

when i do something i usually do it whole hog. but i don't have time to do the other stuff.

since i've started knitting in a prolific manner, i almost never play guitar, read, sketch, take pictures (except of knitting and my hair), do yoga, or go out with people.

and i miss doing all of that.

but knitting is like a debilitating habit - "i'll learn a new song i've been listening to after i finish this sweater/hat/gloves/socks" but as soon as i finish one, i see that i've already started something else that needs finishing or that i'm dying to start something else that's waiting in the wings.

too bad you can't do a pigeon and knit at the same time. because, hoo boy would my hip flexors appreciate that. (randomly, i'm one of those people who wants to puke while doing camel)

is it easier to knit or crochet? can you do both? i want to learn how as i am going to be taking a 17 hour long flight and i get motion sickness if i read and i am thinking...17 hours on a plane - i'll bet i could knit myself a mosquito tent so i won't get malaria or perhaps a bulltproof vest so the kidnappers won't kill me. any suggestions on how i can learn quickly?

for some reason, since the word hobbit is elsewhere on your site, i read the word "hobbies" as "hobbits." i've been at school too long today. can you balance your hobbits? good question.

ami - word.

mariamamamama - i miss you so much!

crystal - i don't know how to crochet. but it's faster than knitting... i'm not the hugest fan of how it looks, but maybe you could crochet a doily with your name in it. :)

pman - i hate it when my hobbits are unequally distributed...
