I can crochet some, just never really got into it enough to learn or read all the stitches. I prefer knitting and have developed that fairly well. Mother crochets EVERYTHING!! She can work on the tiny hook with tiny thread for hours and days and does beautiful filigree tablecloths.... She's a tad disappointed with me and my knitting and gives me those "Family" looks when I tell her I'm working on a piece... she'll say, "What are you making it with?" When I tell her it's knitted she is so funny.... LOL!!!
I find that it is very helpful to know how to crochet and crocheting edges is very simple on my knitting work. I have made several crocheted afghans. I think that crocheting a piece from worsted takes alot less time to complete than knitting.
