Few nearly there and I will have written a post everyday for a week!
Now for the final day we have to write about how we balance knitting and crochet. The short answer is I don’t! I do whatever the whim takes me and what pattern I fancy doing next. At the moment that tends to be crochet as it lends itself more to the wire jewellery that I am currently doing. However, to be fair I did a comparison table:
|I can knit without looking at what I am doing.||I usually have to look where I put the hook.|
|You have to cast off.||You just finish the last stitch.|
|You have (or should) finish the row before you stop.||You can put it down whenever you need to.It takes more wool.|
|Needles are quite long and could be used as weapons by children.||It is more portable (hooks are smaller than needles)|
|Needles not allowed on aeroplanes.||Hooks are not as dangerous and so can get past security.|
As you can see the weight seems to be very much in favour of crochet. Having smallish children adds quite a lot to this result as I need to be able to put work down immediately and stash it away from hands!
As I said earlier, there is no even balance between knitting and crocheting in my life – I am just really happy that I can do both. As long I continue to enjoy doing them the, and am able, then I cannot see it changing .
Did I miss anything out from the table? Do let me know if I did – I may well be looking through blinkered eyes!
There, finished. I have blogged everyday for seven days. I have really enjoyed it and would like to thank Eskimimi from Eskimimi makes for organising it all. It has been an excellent experience. I am now going to go and catch up with all the things I neglected. Thanks for stopping by. 🙂
