Today is the last day of the 3rd Annual Knit and Crochet Blog Week Day 7, or 3KCBWDAY7 for short.
Finding out about this week on the first day has made posting every day a challenge in itself. And you know, it feels GREAT!
The topics did challenge me. Mostly about sharing more of myself and my craft. And isn’t that what blogging is all about?
I’m thrilled so many people have stopped by this week, and hope you’ll come back. If there’s something you want to see covered in a future post, you can click here to leave a request on the “Ask Your Questions Here” post.
So here’s today’s topic –
My mother mostly crocheted, although she did both. As you can see from this photo of some items she made –
She taught us the basics of both. My sister and I started with a knitting spool, then graduated to either knitting or crochet. I’m not sure why I started knitting and my sister crochet.
After a while, we taught each other to do the other craft. Crocheting is more work for me as I find I need to concentrate more on it.
Lately, I pick up a crochet hook mostly –
- To provisionally cast on…
- To pick up a dropped stitch or…
- To crochet an edging – usually single crochet.
Usually I have one project at a time, although there are exceptions to every rule!
And my idea of balance is to knit or crochet what and when I want. 🙂
Whether that’s planning projects in detail or spur of the moment, I enjoy both.
How do you balance crafts in your life?
Are you a knitter, crocheter, or both?
Is one easier than the other?
