Did you know I used to work in libraries? Well, as a child reading has always been my favorite activity. I was a recluse and didn’t care for socializing (and I don’t say that in a cool way, cause it wasn’t). I would always have a book with me.
Like reading it’s been hard at times to get back into it. I do enjoy just doodling as I find it to be fun, and soothing. But the part that isn’t is the want of perfectionism, and, when something doesn’t turn out how I saw it in my mind’s eye. Also, I can’t draw softly (soft lines, curves, pressing pens/pencils lightly, etc) so i get really frustrated by my hard lines. I just have to figure out how to harness it I guess.
I’m most proud of this last one as I’m always worried about perfectionism. Crocheting sometimes feels a little more forgiving than drawing (which is not actually true), but, maybe its that mentality that helps me enjoy it. My Cobb hat is one of the things I’m most proud of.
But, the CMYK blanket I’mc making for a friend might take it’s place! I think it’s coming along nicely! Cyan is finished, and Magenta is almost there!
Do you have any geeky hobbies? What are they?
