Many, many years ago I wanted to quit smoking so I bought a teach yourself how to knit book, to keep me busy......I'm still knitting and have try may other crafts as well. ( I didn't quit smoking then, but did manage to quit later on a few years later.) Its been 15 years now... I enjoy doing crafts with others in a group or one on one. I like different crafts, Quilting, Knitting, Crocheting, I seem to make more baby things than others.
