*Forehead Slap So Hard*

khan

Just finished all the pieces for the latest hat I’m working on and it wasn’t until just now that I realized I half double crocheted the whole damn thing instead of the double crochet the pattern called for.

Yes, it’s still a hat. Yes, it still looks cute. But damn it all! I know its wrong! I know!

I’ll have all the pieces assembled and pics up shortly…grrr….

No Way! Thanks Guys!

I really don’t know what to say. Thanks to everyone for the support, sharing of ideas, and patterns! I’ve been able to do something constructive and you’ve all been so inspirational with your own magnificent talents! Here’s to a new year! Come on! Group hug! Group hug!

What Gives?

silence At the risk of sounding a bit daft, I have to know: Other than the fact one way uses two sticks instead of one, what is the REAL difference between crochet and knitting? Every Joann’s or Michael’s I go into it seems like crochet has the corner market on books and patterns but people still treat it like the red headed stepchild to knitting. Example:

Random person: “I knit!”

Everyone: * sounds of reverence and joy*

 

Random person: “I crochet!”

Everyone: “Oh…” *refuses to make eye contact*

 

Is it easier or harder than knitting? Is it more versatile?  Or is it simply a preference like Winter or Spearmint gum? Your thoughts after this…
