Bring back the good old hobbies - down with the playstation!!

It's been a while since i last posted...but better late than never, right?

I have recently taken up knitting and gardening. I am 24 years old and thoroughly enjoying them both! The knitting is a fun, cheap way of getting new clothes and accessories, and is very relaxing in the evenings in front of the telly. It's also a great escape from anything thats bothering me. It is very dificult to concentrate on what you're knitting and worry about money, work or anything else that may crop up. I know knitting is in the middle of a massive revival and is becomming cool again, but there still seems to be a lot of people who think it should be left to the grans. Pick up your sticks, boys and girls! There's a whole world of stuff to knit!!

My boyfriend and I have moved into our first house in November and the garden is being sorted as a summer project. I never thought I'd get involved and would leave it all to Matthew to sort out. But 3 herb tubs, 14 tomato plants, 12 lettuces, 2 chilli plants, 2 trays of cactus and 1 tray of coleus leaf later - I LOVE IT! It's a great way to stay out in the garden and get a tan (don't forget the suncream), it's a great way of saving (and maybe making) a little bit of money, and it is very satisfying seeing fruit on my tomato plants - i can't wait to pick them!!

I will put pictures online of my knitting and garden progress. So please, if anyone has any tips, suggestions, comments etc please, please post - there has to be other people of a simialr age out there doing similar things! It's lonely talking to myself!! :)
