Let's Chat!: What Other Creative Hobbies Do You Pursue?

The Let’s Chat series is a thread on my Ravelry forum where a new conversation topic related to knitting is posted every week. Participants in the threads are entered into a monthly giveaway where they can win either one of my patterns, yarn in my stash or receive a surprise package filled with goodies from Japan!

This week's topic for discussion in my Ravelry thread is learning more about your creative pursuits! What other crafts or hobbies do you have outside of knitting? While knitting takes up 90% of my work day, there are some rare moments where you can find me drawing/sketching in my notebook or playing the piano. Before knitting came into my life, I actually sketched all the time. I had so many notebooks in my closet filled with sketches since the age of 12, right through high school. I slowed down a bit in college but still managed to fill up a notebook or two through out my years there. While I toyed with the idea of majoring in art, I was content with keeping it to myself and not pursue it as a career.

Also when I was younger I took piano and flute lessons - however I was never really anything spectacular at either so I never wanted to pursue it as a career or anything to put on my resume. Definitely didn't want to pursue music as a career.

How about you? What creative interests and hobbies do you pursue outside of knitting? Share your talents on the Ravelry thread here!
