A friend once commented to me that, in general, knitters don't crochet and hookers don't knit. That those of us who gleefully and easily do both are few and far between.

What say you, KP community friends?

Typically, 75% crochet - - but that's because I primarily make blankets, and I think it depends on what you tend to make.

How long have you been doing each ???

Probably true. I can do both but I tend to lean to crochet. It seems to go faster for me. And you know, there is only so much time in the day and so many great patterns!

I do both, but once I learned to knit, I seldom crocheted any more. Just a personal preference.

Since I was a little girl. 45+ years. My grandmother taught me to crochet and my mother taught me to knit.

I still remember my first projects! A crochet caterpiller bookmark and a really wonky stocking stitch scarf that I never finished. Lol

I recently learned to knit, so have been practicing making dishcloths/washcloths. I crochet blankets, etc for my young grandsons, because it goes quicker and they seem to like the textures.

Hi folks

I do both crocheting and knitting...also rug hooking, cross stitch and other crafts but really prefer to crochet as i am on a blanket kick these days. Do knit mittens and hats too tho for a change.

Glad there are others who enjoy botth too.

Hugs
Marge
