Yes, I admit it! I'm a Two-Timer!
There is something I must get off my chest.

Please, my friends do not be shocked

I've fought it as long as I can.
But it is just too much for me.

I have to come clean.

I've been CROCHETING an afghan and haven't even thought about knitting in days!

There. I feel better.

Just a little attempt at Friday humor!
Happy Knitting!

I equally respect all yarn arts although I don't really know how to do crochet any more than chain stitching.

My mom crocheted all the time when we were growing up and I liked knitting because it was different.

I realize that I have to learn to crochet too though- there are too many edgings etc plus a really pretty pattern I found that I want to make for my little sister.
OTN: - Tree of Life afghan, socks, afghan for Dad, Tura Maeve baby dress, alpaca Winter Mountains scarf, Frida poncho

Recently FO- Quinn cabled bag, Evangeline fingerless gloves (2 pairs), Topknot baby hats, pompom & earflap hats, 8 pairs of socks, Baby Folkwear Caftan, Debbie Bliss Baby Shawl (blanket)

I'm SimplyRenee on Ravelry- feel free to add me as a friend & I will do the same!

Honestly, I think YARN is the drug and knitting and crochet are just ways to take it in.. You're still in the club - Yarnaholics Anonymous

Love it...

Knitting needles and crochet hooks, a yarn users crack pipe!


I knit, and crochet is still not totally natural to me...but as much as I don't care for the look of it, it is useful to know. There are so many knitting patterns you close the door to when you are afraid to try crochet!

I love to do both knitting and crocheting. I only do afghans with crocheting. Although I am making one now and I am knitting it.
I love doing fine crocheting with the string yarns. It looks like lace when done which I love doing. The smaller the needle or hook the better for me.
So you are still in the club of knitting and crocheting

Happy Knitting

I prefer the look of knitting, but there is certainly nothing wrong with crochet! I like the way it's used as a compliment to knitting like the border on knitted sweater for instance. And certainly, it makes more sense to crochet an afghan although I don't know if I'll ever do it.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

I enjoy crocheting almost as much as knitting. It certainly is more forgiving of mistakes. Only 1 stitch to pick up when you're done frogging. Hold your head high and enjoy.

Two Timer/Multi Tasker
Well I'm also a two timer in a sense- I'm all about multi tasking with my knitting. I watch movies, read, surf the net etc. Actually the other day I found this new application from Kodak that's called Make Me Super. You upload a picture of yourself or anyone and make yourself into a 90s styled superhero! It's really entertaining and I got a kick out of it while I knitted. If you want to do the same visit

This has nothing to do with crocheting, but that "make me super" website is THE funniest thing I have seen in a long time. We did the whole family!!! What a blast!!!!
Late at night, when the family's all asleep,
you will find me counting stitches
instead of counting sheep!

I'm on Etsy when I'm not knitting...

I'm Hartleystudio on Ravelry too!!

Crochet Is Awesome!
I've been knitting for 2 years and just learned crochet about a month ago...I have to say, I am having a blast with it! Why not do both, right? LOL!

What afghan pattern are you making? I am crocheting a Spiderman Afghan off of Ravelry for my little grandson, for Christmas. It's really coming along!

Happy Crocheting!
