While summer is the perfect time to get outside and enjoy the nice weather, fall is ideal for honing your hobbies! If you’re someone who enjoys engrossing yourself in a creative or self-improving activity, try these three fall hobbies on for size!
The art of crocheting as we know it goes back to the 18thcentury. Today, it’s done much the same, and there are tons of beginner, intermediate, and advanced projects to try out.
This activity can produce beautiful works of art that are also useful. Most simple crochet projects only require a crochet hook, yarn, a tapestry needle, and a pair of scissors. You can usually work on crochet while you watch a movie, chat with friends, or even ride the bus. It’s an extremely versatile hobby that’s easy to learn and makes great projects for yourself or for gifts.
Cooking and Baking
It’s never a bad time to get better at cooking and baking. You may think you’re already a pro, but how much do you know about spices? Can you use a meat thermometer? What’s the most complicated dish you can make? Have you ever wanted to emulate a recipe you tried at a restaurant? Try your hand at honing your cooking this fall, and hey, if you’re pretty good, you’ll be eating like a king!
“But learning isn’t a hobby!”
We hear you. And maybe it isn't a hobby exactly. But it is what you’re doing when you pick up a new hobby anyway, so if you’d rather not learn a new skill per se, why not learn some useful information that can enrich your life?
You could test yourself on your knowledge of geography, history, science, world leaders, or a new language (French, Spanish, German?). Or you might even consider learning about your own family. Genealogy is an exciting area that can uncover some extremely important things about yourself and your family that you may not have known before.
