I started with knitting back in the 60's - g'ma taught me (probably to keep me busy and out of her hair). Only knitted that one winter.
Took up crochet about 12 years ago - started with thread crochet.
Started spinning about 10 years ago and lusted after knit socks. I would spin skein after skein of sock weight yarn - crocheted socks just didn't do it for me.
I tried to teach myself knitting again, but couldn't get the hand of it, despite trying multiple 'learn to knit'. I knew I knitted continental.
I found this site (THANK YOU!) and realized that G'ma taught me combined continental.
I'm zipping right along now with both knitting and crocheting.
