6 New Hobbies For The Quarantined Friend Who Needs One 

Were past 2 months of quarantine now, and while you may have thought your home and Netflix were full of things to do, youre starting to realize that eventually all things run out. Some of your friends or family may be coming to that realization faster than you are, and if youre starting to worry, it may be time to send the thoughtful gift of a distraction.

Weve collected together some starter kits and do-it-yourself ideas for a few hobbies that a lot of us have been interested in over the years but never had time for. Knitting, crocheting… looming… only our grandparents generation had time for those things – right?

Knitting time

The perfect knit for a beginner trying to learn the craft and create some skill. Create a beautiful scarf with instructions, needles, soft yarn and a wonderful end result. Choose your color and tassel color and the end result is 6.5 inches wide and 100 inches long.
