It’s for the children, people!
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….
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…
