Seems like that's the way... If you are really advanced in one (knit/crochet) it seems harder to cross over to the other. I have crocheted extensively and done very little knitting. So I have now taken on a rather large (for me) knitting project that uses lots of different stitches, cables and dare I say 'a chart...' Golly that makes me nervous. Trying to get better at knitting and get out of my comfort zone. Enjoy your class and let us know how it goes. I know you can do it. I think if you are an advanced knitter you can fix the international space station.

On a side note, although I taught myself how to crochet, I don't feel very comfortable that I'm doing it correctly, so I'm taking a class at JoAnn's tonight! YEA!! I probably could have skipped the 101 and went straight to the 201 class, but I wanted to make sure I don't miss any of the basics. I can't believe the trouble I've had picking this up! I taught myself to knit just a couple of years ago and am advanced enough to cable, etc. But the crochet is kicking my hiney!!
