I've always wondered how and why knitting got so much for popular than crochet. I'm they both can make the same things basically and there's only miner differences. But if you ask someone which would they like to learn you probably would hear knitting. Maybe because people are more familiar with it. I learn crochet since that's what my grandmother taught me. For those who crochet and knit, may I ask which one do you like better?
Well I certainly hope it picks up again, since in my little town they barely supplied yarn as it was! My parents won't let me get yarn off line so if it's not in the stores I'm simply not going to crochet with it that brand.
