I first learned to crochet my senior year of high school. I learned to do very little besides single and double crochet, and even then I don’t think I learned to do that very well. I made quite a few scarves, but that was about it for me. I played around with it off and on during my first few years of college, but seriously never made it past scarves.
Then a few years ago I got a set of looms from Provo Craft. I’ve made a few hats and some scarves with those, but it was kind of like crochet where I played with it every now and then.
Enter knitting last fall, and I seem to be sticking with it. We’ll have to see, but I’ve definitely put more time and effort in learning and honing skills. I’m not ok with just making scarves. I want to make hats, socks, blankets, etc., and I want to learn how to do cool things with lace and different techniques.
I’ve been thinking about trying crochet again. Really learning how to do it properly and do it well, but every time I even consider it I start to think about all of the knitting projects I want to work on and just can’t see myself ever having time.
This post was mostly to let you all know that I am not dead.
