The Difference between Knitting and Crochetting

Knitting and crocheting are different, but the same. When you knit you use pointed needles. When you crochet you use one hook. The technique is different and the outcome is different, but the basic concept is the same. . .

pull the yarn though the loop.

I like them both, but I'm much faster at crocheting than knitting. For example: I'm working on a knitting project I've been knitting on and off for a year. Here's a picture:

For those who are interested this is a blanket knitted from a Log Cabin pattern from Mason-Dixon Knitting.

It's taking me so long because I get board. It's a big blanket and I don't like doing the same thing over and over again, which is what this pattern is all about. So, I have to change it up a little bit and do a crochet project and then go back to the blanket later. Here is what I started last night while I watched the sad ending of the Jazz/Lakers game with my roommate and friends.

It's not a hat. It's not a hot-water bottle. It IS HOT PINK! Do you want to guess what it is? Go ahead. I'll give you hints along the way.

I guess I don't have an excuse to confuse knitting and crocheting anymore. . .
