You got it. First, though, I want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!
Back to the post. Gotta finish soon because I have family waiting for me downstairs. My favorite form of creative procrast--,er, distraction (besides reading, movies & tv!) is crocheting. I learned how to crochet when I was ten. A lady from church gave me lessons once a week for at least a couple years. Now, I'm not a major genius at it. Mostly, scarves and blankets are my speed. Nothing too complicated. If I have to keep looking at a pattern, I'll start over with something simpler so I can crochet and watch tv, not crochet, find my place in the directions, crochet, find my place yada yada, and totally miss the plot points of the show/movie I'm trying to keep up with. (I know, two prepositions at the end of that sentence.)
Last year I decided to stretch my abilities a bit and made several hats and headbands for kids at the hospital. We found a snazzy book at Michaels and I found a hat that only took me a couple tries to get right. :D
A few months ago I discovered there are tons of free crochet patterns available online. So, in addition to scarves I was whipping up for the homeless, I also made hats for them.
The last few weeks I've been making hats for babies and kids. Lexi's LAMB will be visiting the kids at Wesley hospital on Christmas Eve.
Here are a few glimpses of what I've been up to: (I know, more prepositions)
What's YOUR favorite way to creatively distract yourself?
