Weekly Geeks.

This week's Weekly Geek is inspired by Dewey's Knit-a-Long, a mini challenge of Dewey's Reading Challenge. Dewey had other passions besides reading and blogging. Knitting was one of them. This made me think, what are the Weekly Geek's other passions?





#1. What are you passionate about besides reading and blogging? For example, are you crafty (knitting, woodworking, scrapbooking, model building)? Do you cook? Into gaming (computer or board)? Sports (player or spectator)? Photography? Maybe you like geocaching, rock climbing? Or love attending events like renaissance fairs, concerts? Music? Dancing? You get the idea.





Tell us why you're passionate about it. Post photos of what you've made or of yourself doing whatever it is you love doing.





#2. Get us involved. Link to tutorials, recipes, Youtube videos, websites, fan sites, etc, anything that will help us learn more about your interest or how to do your hobby. Maybe you'd like to link to another hobbyist whose work you admire or tell us about a book or magazine related to your interest.





#3. Visit other Weekly Geeks. Link in your post to other Geeks who've peaked your interest in their passion. Or maybe you might find a fellow afincionado among us, link to them.


I really enjoy sewing, this can be embroidery, crossstitch or dressmaking. Here are some of the posts that have included items I've made,
embroidered card.
Crossstitch cats.
Quilted bag.
Looking forward to reading more 'geek' posts.

That quilted bag is very pretty. I myself am not able to do any crafty stuff. I get way too impatient and angry that it never turns out as it is supposed to, so I admire all of you who are able to turn scraps of cloth, a string of yarn etc into something pretty.
