I was at the monthly craft circle I go to, working on my whatever the hell it’s going to be depending on how far the yarn goes project.
The discussion turned briefly to knitting versus crochet.
I do know how to do both. My maternal grandma taught me when I was a sweet young thing, when we lived with her after my parents got divorced.
I went through a spate of knitting in my thirties (including, when I was in the show Chicago, playing Mama Morton, knitting a scarf that when it furled open had the name “Velma” knitted into it), and that was pretty much it.
Mostly I crochet and for a very good reason.
When you knit, if you make a mistake there is a hole.
When you crochet, the whole thing is nothing but holes, so who gives a fuck!
I love needlework that is so forgiving.
