Weekend Challenge: A New Hobby

Hello, my favorite people!!

So, how many of you started a new hobby (or 12) during quarantine? Personally, I contemplated about five; started two; and have plans to start two more......

ANYWAY. I found a list of 125 hobbies to try out for quarantine, and figured it might make for some fun for your characters. Maybe it is, in fact, a new hobby they've picked up; maybe it's a secret hobby they've had all along?

Steve Rogers was a pro-knitter by eight and you can fight me on it

As always.. specific number, random number; one prompt of more.

Hobby this place up!
