I learned to crochet way befor I learned to knit, cause my mum couldn't remember how to knit and like to crocheted more(eventhough she never made anything when I was younger).
I never crocheted more than a few doll clothes and scarves. Now, that I knit I feel like I understand crocheting more, you know. Like where to insert the hook and how to keep away from adding stitches.
At the moment I'm filet crocheting a tablecloth, but it's quite boring in my opinion. Once you get the hang of it it's just full and empty squares. But the end result will look great so I keep going(will also be a gift for my mum).
My mum is crocheting a blanket out of a gazillion(her word :lol: ) squares. And for her it is faster than knitting, but than she's a pretty slow knitter.
