Who likes to knit or crotchet?

I am wanting to learn how to knit. I am also looking for new patterns to crotchet. Also does anyone understand how to read the patterns on the crotchet label?

  • I taught myself to knit and am working on a scarf. I bought a few books to try and teach myself beyond just the essential basics. My goal is to knit something like a hat, maybe socks.

  • I love to crochet, and I too am self-taught. I can read the patterns pretty easily, but once in a while I will have to look up a stitch.

  • I love to crochet also and am self-taught. I have trouble reading some of the patterns, but a few minutes of googling things usually clears things up for me.
