I've never liked the idea of being in the closet, so I'm coming right out and admitting it, I've learned to crochet. My wife and daughter are both crocheters, but I learned knitting when I was seven years old and it's always been my fiber art.
They can't get their heads around knitting. No hook to pull the yarn with, how do you do it? Drove my daughter crazy trying it. I'm the other way, only one stick? How does that work.
But I've been working on a jacket for my niece for Christmas, and it required crochet for the button plackets and buttonholes on the front. I realize now that I could have just picked up stitches along the edges and knit it too, but before that, I realized I had made the sleeves too short, so I crocheted some extra length onto them. It will be covered with faux fur so it won't show and since I was adding onto sleeves in the round and didn't have any dpns, crochet seemed to be a good way.
So now I know how to crochet. Well, single crochet at least. I'll work on the fancier stuff later. I'm out of the closet, and I can go both ways.
