...how much I love crochet. I've been doing a lot more knitting for the past 8-10 months. Crochet has been on the back burner (as in the projects I've started and pushed to the bottom of my craft shelves). But I wanted to make some simple washcloths for a classroom basket for the elementary school auction. I decided to crochet them because I knew it would go faster.
Then I picked up some yarn to make an afghan for my new nephew who will soon be here in the US. I started knitting a gauge swatch and realized I didn't have the right size needles. Instead of running out and getting different needles, I crocheted a swatch instead. I really like the look of the knitted fabric, but I'd forgotten how quickly I can crochet a baby blanket. I'd forgotten how easy it is to rip a little out and go back to fix a mistake. I'd forgotten how easy it is to pick up the project for 5 minutes here and there.
The blanket will be done really soon, and I will keep working on knitting my second pair of socks. But for now, I am blissfully hooking away.
