I am glad to find this thread. I have been crocheting for years. We have a group at church that does various things for different organizations in the area. I am currently knitting mittens for kids for them. I knit very little. Crochet mostly. I promised I would make granny square Christmas stockings for a friend who has twin grandbabies and I forgot until Friday so I am now busy making lots of squares.
I have crocheted since I was little. I had a grandmother and aunt who did it. My MIL also crochets,but she mostly likes to knit. I am somewhat of an instant gratification girl so knitting takes waaaaay to long for me.
