    I knew all of that 🙂 I crochet basic afghans. (I don't read patterns) I wish I was taught fancy ones. I get the same thing with cross stitch, they ask what are you embroidering? I never learned to knit or embroider. Have a great weekend.

    • Oh man, I never thought about that one! Maybe we should advise people just to ask, "What are you making?" Vague. General. Safe!

      Thanks for commenting!

    I crochet the meanest chain you've ever seen–bahaha… But that's pretty much it. I can at least tell the difference between crochet & knitting lol… Although those knitting needles always seemed like a pretty handy pair of stabby things if ya ever found yourself in need of em (idk maybe in case you were mugged by a yarn thug lol)

    • Hahahaha! I love it. When I was trying to teach my mother to crochet, she went home and made a chain longer than I am tall. She didn't like building on the chain with other stitches, but she did love the chaining part!

      And yes, I agree – knitting needles seem like a way better thing to have in your bag than a crochet hook if you get mugged by a yarn gang in an alley! 😉

    Hahaha! I usually get the reverse… My grandma taught me how to do the knit stitch when I was 9. My hubby knows I knit and knows I have no clue how to crochet beyond a single chain… but he always says I'm crocheting. …and he tells people that I can crochet because he keeps telling me "it's all the same"! Grr.. LOL

  4. It may seem like a trivial thing, but MAN it's annoying. It made me want to learn to knit because I was tired of people asking me what I was knitting.

  5. I'm not sure what your last project is, where you posed the question, knots or V"s, but that is really unique. I do know the difference between knitting and crocheting, LOL.

    • I loved that project, Robin! It wasn't my pattern. It was a free pattern I found on ravelry for a Katniss cowl, modeled on the one Katniss wears in the first Hunger Games movie. (I don't know if you're a crocheter, but the whole thing is done HDC, and the ridges are created with rows of FLO. It's a cool effect!)

    Crocheting and Knitting are yarn works that really enjoyable and exciting. And through these projects you can make some beautiful stuffs, but I recommend for those beginners I prefer to do Knitting.
