Crochet. All it takes is a hook. The textile world seems divided into Knitters and Crocheters; I’ve rarely met a Switch. I decided to try learning and this scarf is my swatch that, well, grew. The teacher provided us with a ball of bulky yarn and a hook, and I had a ball learning single crochet, half-double crochet, and double crochet (which really should be triple, since there are 3 chains, but treble is something else, and…)
Yeah, I’m a Knitter.
I mean, for one thing, I have a heck of a time keeping my stitches in order. I somehow end up with more, or less, depending on where I am in the project. I know it’s a matter of practice, but my knitting seduces me. I’ll say this: I’m really glad that I know some crochet now, because there’s this sweater I knit that has 4 crocheted medallions up the center, and I really want to finish it.
What about you, Dear Reader?
What craft have you begun that you want to practice more?
