    Me too!

    I crochet when I canĀ“t quilt. I think it is good to mix them up now and then.

    Sometimes I just want to create but not feeling the quilt bug and then the crocheting is a good choice.

    I am also a crocheter, but can't get the hang of knitting! Have done afghans, doilies and lace collars (dating myself, I know - they were really popular in the early 90s). I also did a bunch of cross stitch at one time.

    Love the projects shown! I haven't done much crocheting since I found quilting. I may pull something out to do while watching tv.

    I crochet.....have made a few afghans in my years. Haven't done any for awhile now. Never cared for knitting much. Always felt knitting was too slow, but I admire those who do it. Cross stitched lots in the past also. Before quilting, crocheting was my winter hobby and cross stitch my summer!

I've always admired those who could take yarn and turn it into a sweater, scarf, hat or afghan. Wish me luck.

    I am knitter! Mostly I knit in the car, in front of the TV, on airplanes and at doctor's appointments. My first love is sewing! If I can't take my sewing machine with me, I knit!

    But I can crochet a chain from here to eternity and back! ;-)

    Always wanted to learn to knit but never did, however I do lots of crochet, doilies, table cloths, bedspreads and anything that uses the crochet thread, never much like to crochet with yarn for afgans, although I have made a few, lots of counted cross stitch also.

    Yup, I knit too. I've made at least 12 dolphin washcloths this summer for holiday gifts. I'm also making a sweater for me.

    I do counted cross-stitch, crochet and knit (a little). I've made lots of crocheted afghans and baby blankets and have knitted booties and tiny sweaters and hats. Now my knitting is fairly limited to dishcloths. I have an 'in-the-round-' sweater in my knitting bag waiting for me.
