Hello,

I have always wanted to learn how to either knit or crochet.  The problem is I have actually no talent in that area, I just am not a crafty person.  So, which would be easier to learn?  Can one learn from a book, dvd or would I have to take a class?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

I"m learning to crochet by watching FREE youtube videos... they are GREAT... My mom tried to teach me for years and I could not get it...but for some reason these video's are doing the trick... I've learned so much..Haven't finished anything yet but just started a couple of weeks ago and what I've done so far is looking good. Just google "how to crochet videos"

i have done both but find crocheting easier.  as jmlmomma said, youtube has alot of videos.  there is a knitting/crocheting group here on cm that provides a lot of help and hints to beginners.

I've never tried knitting but I would think crocheting is easier. Look online and see if you can find a how-to on youtube.

 Youtube has video on both.  I crochet and I used to knit when I was younger but I've forgotten how.  I like crochet--you can do so many things.
