Obviously, I’m a huge fan of growing and cooking food myself. Recently, I’ve also developed an interest in crafts- particularly knitting. I’ve now made a few scarfs and have my sights set on successfully completing a reusable bag made from plastic bags.
One of the most fun aspects of my new hobby is how many other people I’ve found to be interested in DIY crafts. DIY is “do it yourself”, which according to wikipedia became trendy in the 1950s with an emergence of people undertaking home improvements and other small craft and construction projects as both a creative-recreational and cost-saving activity. Since starting to knit, and becoming aware of DIY projects, I realized how many other people I know are interested as well. What fun!
