I knit and crochet and love them both for different things. Knitting is my preferred method of making anything wearable like sweaters, mittens, scarves, ponchos. Crochet is definitely my favorite for afghans and baby blankets. I like making them all one color in a fancy stitch so the stitch is the star, or using a pattern of colors in a simple stitch or pattern of blocks so the colors are the star. Oooh, I love having a pile of yarn to create something with !
I have started to build up my library of video tutorials
for knitting and crocheting which beginners might find helpful.
