I'm about to give up on trying to learn to knit and take up crocheting. My friend says crocheting is easier and I have a book on it that I got at a used book store. Its kinda pathetic that I spin yarn and yet can't really do anything with the yarn I make. So hopefully Ill have better luck with crochet. Either way I want to felt the stocking I send.
I crochet but do not knit. One of these days I want to learn though. I learned almost everything on how to crochet on you tube. Once I had the stitches down I went to using patterns.
Good luck learning!
I'm soooo envious of you both!!! (and of everyone else who can crochet)
I've tried and tried and tried my hardest to crochet but it all has ended in a MONSTROUS failure!!!! From reading books to watching tutes on youtube....I have realized that I can't crochet my way outta a wet paper bag to save my life!!!! LOL But I soooooooooooo want to learn!!! *sigh* I can knit...not like sweaters or anything but the little things...wristlets..scarves etc. BUT one day I swear.....I'm bound and determined to learn how!!!!!!! LOL
Sry about that rant!!!
On a better note...I am excited for this swap!!!!
