A "Knit-Person" and "Crochet-Person": Fact or Fiction?
I was sitting with my mother at Starbucks today, knitting away on my current WIP (a baby blanket), when she began telling me about her mother's knitting. Her mother knit, but never crocheted. My mother crocheted, but couldn't really get the hang of knitting. My grandmother on my father's side crochets, but does not knit.

I taught myself to crochet from books, but needed a teacher for knitting my first time out. After a lesson, though, I could knit just as well as I crocheted, and I've always seemed to have equal skill at both. Am I strange? Do most people do better at one or the other? And why? To me, the two are very similar, but they must have some important difference in the way the brain processes them, to make one or the other so challenging for a person.

I'm curious as to everyone's insights on this topic, and to find out how many out there are in the same boat as me--comfortable in both worlds.
