Okay… If you know how to do it, you should let me know…
Like I said earlier, I have a lot of hobby… I cook, bake, knit, crochet, and cross stitch. And they do require a lot of money if you want to make something really good.
For example, knitting and crocheting… I could buy a nice pair of needles or hooks at the charity shops, but cheap wool is not easy to find. Most cheap wool I found is not well spun, or nice and fluffy like the more expensive one. Sometimes they would have a dodgy knots in the middle, making your knitted project really ugly, or a uneven plying.
Cross stitch is slightly easier for now. And, as cross stitching takes longer to finish (at least for me), it is cheaper if you calculate it by the amount of days you’re doing your hobby. But with hundreds and hundreds of colours, it will take around 30-40 pounds for one project.
This HAED for example… I am lucky that I have at least a third of the threads that I would need to finish it. But, I honestly can’t imagine funding a bigger project than this one, as much as want to 😦
So, if you don’t mind me asking…
How do you budget for your hobby? How much roughly do you allocate for a project?
