Crocheting Versus Knitting - I Love Both!

Do you love To Crochet?
Do you Love to Knit?
Do you love Both, Like me?

But What is the difference?
Article By Craft Yarn Council
I also found this fun Blog  By
Craftaholics Anonymous
Knitting Vs. Crochet Which one is for you?
I say learn both!
The Tools:

Crocheting                                 Knitting
 1 hook                                 2 Needles
Yarn                                     Yarn

I know there are a lot of incidentals, such as 
stitch markers, measuring tape, yarn needles,
and more depending on the project.

I love to design using both techniques,
 But it seems that there is
"no love lost" Between  the 2 groups.
I have a hard time with this.
I have even been told, 
"You need to use more expensive yarns in your designs".
I totally understand using expensive yarns, 
as I love to play with all styles, 
textures and colors of yarns.
When I walk into Yarn Stores, sometimes I just stand there 
and soak in all the "Yarny Goodness".
I have even been know to "squeeze and caress" yarns.
I admit it.................
I am a Yarn Addict!
My Personal Goal
 When it comes to any Pattern I design,
 whether Crochet or Knitting,
 is my goal to design a pattern that
anyone one is able to stitch it up.

I try to keep my patterns simple and
 I try to use yarns that are accessible, 

 You can always substitute any expensive yarns,
for less expensive yarns of similar weight.
AndI often do this.

You can pick up a Crochet Hook or 
set of Knitting Needles for a few bucks.
As well as, pick  up a couple of skeins or balls of yarn
 for a couple of bucks.
Grab some Free patterns from Online, and get busy creating.

 Once People see that they can create fun and useful items,
they will learn to love this wonderful Art.
They may even gain confidence to tackle harder projects
 and spend more money on the expensive yarns, 
without fear of wasting it.

I want all people to be able to Crochet and Knit.
I think ALL people should love it, like I do!
I do not want anyone to feel they cannot
 learn to Knit or Crochet
 because they cannot afford it.
How I learned to Crochet and Knit -
At 14 I "lived" at the Library.
I Loved and still do, love to read.
 One day I checked out some books on
Crocheting and Knitting.
I went to K-mart and picked up some 
inexpensive Crochet hooks, and Knitting needles, 
and few skeins of worsted weight yarn,
 with my allowance Money.
Way back then, K-mart had a craft section.
I read and practiced, re-checking out
those books many times.
I wrote notes in a notebook, things I wanted to remember.
I even drew pictures of stitches.
I Crocheted and Knitted those Same Balls of yarn over and over,
till I learned the stitches.
I also learned Needle Point and Cross Stitch, the same way.
I was Hooked and Stitched!
And have been playing with yarn ever since.
I just want everyone to love to 
Knit and Crochet,
 Like I do!
You can find My 
Free Knitting Patterns
Free Crochet Patterns
 at the tabs at the top 
of the blog.
I really think that people who Knit and 
people Who Crochet, 
really have the same heart.

We are all Yarnies!
