My thoughts on crochet:
- it's way faster than knitting
- you can make really cool flowers with crochet if you know what you're doing
- sometimes the end product looks a little funny, so knitting is definitely better (for things like socks for instance)
- sometimes crochet is better suited to a project than knitting.
Here is my progress to support the points (all but #2...haven't attempted flowers yet):
Three granny squares completed in an evening and a half. This is going to be a totally random kind of granny square blanket. We shall see what we think of it when we're done.
And finally, a skein of yarn crocheted into a boa-type scarf...in an hour or so. SO much easier than knitting...I gave up on it after trying to knit it because it was majorly slow and fussy and frustrating. Put a crochet hook through those loops and loop back on the chain every now and again and you have a fun little scarf! I have two more skeins to work on when I feel like it (I will admit that it was still kind of fiddly but SO much better than knitting).
When I was growing up my daddy called me Lester Suskanewski. I hated it but he did it anyway.
