I just think of it as being an alternate spelling of "newb" like l33t or something.

Anyway, I was showing yet another classmate how to cast on lol. I showed her long-tail cast-on (only one I know how to do..) She and our fellow classmate were LOLing over the fact I carry a small amount of yarn/my small kiddie needles in my backpack, too.

I've crocheted since the age of about 10. I'm 52 now. Knitting always eluded me until 3 years ago. Crochet is faster, easier by far, and you get results and completed items quicker.

I can make a crocheted baby blanket in a few days, where as if I knitted one the same dimensions it would take me atleast 3 weeks.

Each craft has its' different charm and place and it's good to know how to do both.
