All Hands On Cocks Please

By | January 24, 2011

I can crochet, wont lie, my grandma taught me how to do it many years ago as a young girl.  The only problem with it is that it doesn’t seem to be as practical as knitting, which I am hopeless at.  My stitches are so variable that it really does look “handmade” for all the wrong reasons, if you know what I mean.

My most ambitious venture with knitting was to make a scarf, no casting on or off ( I actually sound like I know what I’m doing now  🙂 ) just one continuous pieces of wool knotting.  I know there are so many things you can make with knitting but me and the knit one pearl one just didn’t click.

So crochet it was!  But it was so restrictive in terms of creating wearable items.  I could make the common or garden crochet square which when sewn together transformed in to squared off waistcoat.  Suze even had the ingenuity to be able to create little crocheted hats just like ABBA wore way back when.  And don’t forget the obligatory mat complete with roses.

But hasn’t knitting come on in leaps and bounds.  You can now create masterpieces like Mr Daisy but I’m not quite sure where you would display him or if you would have the nerve to gift him to a friend.  Lol
