doing what Jackie does

I can’t believe it – I’ve been a crocheter for over 20 years, and now, for some reason, I can’t kick the notion that knitting may make me, *gasp*, ๐Ÿ˜ฎ happier.

I don’t knit that well. I’ve only ever made dishcloths and scarves, so I have a large learning curve to overcome.
I think – well, I know, we live in a knit-friendly crafting world.
Most free patterns (and $ ones), are knit.
The crocheting world is catching up, by making nicer, more flattering patterns, and for that I’m immensely happy.
I just can’t shake the “you should knit” feeling.
I know it’ll pass. But, well…. PASS Already!

  1. I know what you mean! I tried to learn to knit (it seems like EVERYONE knits) but it just didn’t stick with me. I definitely prefer to hook! Though every once in a while, I do get that “you should knit” feeling, too. What’s the deal with that?

  2. I hear ya! I have been knitting for 3 months, now. Crocheting for almost 3 years.
    I have an etsy shoppe full of my original crochet designs but now that I have learned to knit, I find myself strangely “drawn” to it. Even when I’m happily crocheting, I find myself sitting there thinking to myself, this would be so much prettier knit. And then I start to feel guilty, like I’m cheating on crochet!

    It is unbelievable to me how much FASTER crocheting is. But on the other hand, knitting takes only a third of the yarn that crochet takes!!!

    I think I’ll probably always go back and forth between the two. Share the love! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    BTW…..I found you through Lisa (Kniterlee) on ravelry. I am a Witness in the Pacific NW. ๐Ÿ™‚
