I prefer crocheting- I find knitting more tedious, though I do love the effects you can create with knitting. Fortunately, over the last 15 years or so, crocheting techniques and the effects/textures one can create have really developed so you can really make some more dramatic pieces nowadays.

I'm equally lame at both. I've crocheted scarves and granny squares for afghans, and knitted scarves and throws. I've never really graduated from square things in either method, and probably never will!
I prefer to crochet than knit. I made some crochet hats and some mobile phone cases for personal use and I just like crocheting over knitting. My colleague showed me how to knit which is quite interesting but I still prefer to crochet things. I would love to learn how to crochet a hand bag. I think crochet hand bags are nice.
I like knitting but find that crocheting is much quicker and you need only hold one needle!

What type of craft do you like to do? (knitting, crocheting, painting, etc)I love to experiment. I do quite a bit of painting, but I also really enjoy crocheting, and making jewelry and polymer clay.
