I still like to crochet every once in a while, especially when I want some instant gratification. I kinda go through phases. One phase I'll be a knitten fool and other times I'll crochet every doily pattern I can find until I run out of thread and then it'll be back to knittin again. Kinda goes back n forth.
I'm doing both simultaneously right now. I knit until my hands start hurting then I switch to crochet. I have 4 crochet projects going and 8 knit (ignore the sig, it's not correct). I do prefer knit though, the look and feel of the finished product is much nicer to me than crochet.

...I can't have too many projects, I still have empty needles...
Yep, that's me too. I started crocheting doilies at age 8 or so. Then at 12 started knitting. Over the years I made a few doilies but no more. I love the fabric that is produced by knitting. On occasion I will make the Gkids a blanket using crochet but more often it will be a knitted one. So I'm 58 now and still prefer knitting.

I'm knitting4angels on Ravelry. I would love for some friends!
I started by crocheting. I made one bedspread. It took me a year and a half. I have never picked up a hook since. When I was 25 a neighbour started me knitting and I knew why I did not like crochet. I've never looked back. I don't even remember how to crochet anymore.
I love to give homemade gifts... which one of my kids do you want?

I love crocheting with thread LOVE it! But I do not like crocheting with yarn. I love knitting with yarn. Knitting is the newer hobby so I'm doing a lot of it right now but I also have a 1960 doily pattern in size 30 thread that I pull out and work on.
