 I have a couple things I want to do before 2010 when I ttc.  I want to learn how to crochet and knit.  Which would you suggest learning first?

I can do both but find crocheting was easier to start with and I still like it better than knitting.!

I can't remember why but my teacher made me learn how to knit when I was in the 3rd grade. I tried to learn how to crochet as well, but still can't do it. IMO knitting is easier.

Knitting.Crochet things are pretty but knit things just seem more significant.

 I want to make socks, blankets, hats, mittens and scarves, is there anything I cannot make knitting/crocheting, like I have to specifically make socks by knitting or whatever.

I do blankets and scarves thats all I have done so far.

You can do all those things doing both you just need to get patterns.

I like crocheting better cause with knitting you have to use both wrists to move the needles with crocheting I only need on wrist to screw up with. For some reason I can crochet longer than I can knit. Knitting is faster though. You will just have to try both and see what you like

I find Knitting to be a lot more fun... so that's what I'd go with. I've been Knitting since I can remember and can/do crochet sometimes but I actually enjoy Knitting and it's so quick, I can finish a whole skene of yarn in the time it takes me and the kids to watch a movie.
