I remember my grandma teaching me to knit AND crochet...but for the longest time I stuck with crochet. I had one of those books with about 100 stitch patterns for crochet. I remember grabbing a hook and a ball of yarn and starting with Pattern #1. Did that one, ripped it out and then.....on to #2. And so on, and so on.....
THEN about 9 years ago I decided I wanted my finished pieces to look like knitted ones. So I picked up knitting again. Since then I've taught a knitting/crochet class in a homeschool group and at my church. I knit continental style but I've taught all my students to knit English, since I haven't a clue how to teach Continental. I guess because I learned English...not sure.
But, all that to say that I've enjoyed knitting and crochet. My focus is on knitting at the moment.
