I've just been commissioned to make a sweater for an LYS as a store sample. It's not crocheted. It's knitted. Yes, I can knit and I enjoy knitting. I realize that my "Modern Crochet Goddess" blog title may imply that I'm all-crochet, all-the-time, but that is not the case. I learned to knit about 3 years ago, and until then, I just couldn't get it. Knitting was so hard! and so SCARY! All those loose loops just waiting to spring free from the needles. Ugh. But I love the look of knitted fabric for many things, and trying to make crochet look like knitting is like ....trying to make knitting look like crochet. So I tried again. I took an actual class. Thank goodness my teacher (thank you Candice!) had the suggestion of knitting continental or I would still be struggling along. I'm still afraid of all those loops. Still can't fix every mistake, but I really enjoy knitting and learning another craft has expanded my crochet knowledge.
