Rip It Good

KCBW 2012 #7: Crafting Balance

| 1 Comment

Oh mess, I almost missed the last day of Knit and Crochet Blog Week! That’s what happens when one has a migraine.

I think it was pretty obvious from yesterday’s post (and also from the rest of this blog, really) that I both knit and crochet.

I learned to crochet when I was a teenager (I think, it could possibly have been a bit younger), and so I have more experience with it and I can finish projects much faster than I would be able to with knitting (which is why I have never knitted a blanket). But since I like knitting for some projects and crocheting for others, I really loves me some knitting, even if it takes me longer.

I like to have at least one knit and one crochet project going at the same time. This is because the different crafts affect my hands in different ways, and switching between them keeps my hands from aching from repeating the same movement too long.

Still, though, sometimes I’m bad and I finish a crochet baby blanket in a week, and then my wrist hurts and I have to take a break from raveling all together. Tee hee. So naughty. :)

  1. Makes sense to me. I usually have a few crochet projects going at one time. I’ve used knitting in my crochet projects, but now that I think about it, I’ve never actually knitted something that is just knitted. hmm…add it to my list:) Happy Tuesday to you!
