Knitting or crocheting?

For those that do either or both, which do you like better? I like knitting better; I prefer crocheting when I'm making an afghan.

  • I started with crochet and I'm still learning how to knit. For me most of the things I want to make are knit's hard to say. Knitting is taking me longer to learn but that is in part to the problems I have with my hands and time contrants with two kids under five.
    Wash cloths: either
    baby blankets: crochet
    socks: knit
    hats/ preemie: knit
    hobo bags: crochet
    baby outfits: knit
    diaper covers: knit
    toddlar coats: afghan stitch - special stich and needle
    dolies: crochet

  • my hands get confused with the 2 needles LOL so I mostly crochet, though I do know the basics of knitting, it just takes me forever to knit.

  • I prefer crocheting although loom knitting is faster. I can knit with needles but it's not my fave.

  • I love hand work, have tried anything available: knit, crochet, tatting, embroidery, latch hook, candlewicking, weaving, cross stitch, sewing. Most of them I can do. But I simply have NOT been able to knit. Latest attempt was this year, first attempt was 1976. That and baking with yeast are my final frontiers.

  • I LOVE LOVE LOVE to crochet. It's more than a hobby, it's an addiction.

  • I guess I prefer knitting, but only because I can't catch on to crocheting. Maybe I should have learned that one first. I've seen lots of cute crochet patterns that I would like to be able to make.
