I knit & crochet but my preference is to Knit. The possibilities are endless in knitting.

I learned to crochet first, then knit. Depends on what pattern I like. Do I knit or crochet today?

Wow! I've tried counted cross stitch and embroidery in my younger days. I've even helped a friend make a quilt, although I never got the bug for those. I sewed a lot when my kids were small but don't do much now.

Kudos for all the fabric arts!!!

Both. I guess more knitting but crochet will always be my first yarny love and I quickly and easily slip back into being a hooker. A gal's gotta do what a gal's gotta do.

I'm a 60-40 knitter. It's what I learned first and what I usually pick up first.

I learnt to crochet at 10yo and knit at 12yo. I knit more than crochet. I prefer the look of knit for clothing. I crochet some shawls, dishcloths and blankets... I'm much faster at crochet than knitting... I also do counted cross stich, sewing and shuttle tatting. Learnt needle tatting, but prefer the shuttle...

Mostly knitting, maybe once in a while I will pick up some crochet and do it, but admittedly not very well.

I wonder if our preferences are influenced by how and when we learned? A family friend taught me to knit when I was 7. I learned crochet from a book a good many years later.

I do both, depending on the project.

We who do both are bistitchual. One of us uses the the avatar "I am bistitchual."
Sometimes I add crochet to a knit work.

I do both, more knitting because crochet hurts my hands more.
