Pros of Crochet:
- Cost efficient hooks are cheaper than needles and though it seems that crocheting takes up more yarn, if you adjust your patterns or simply freehand it takes up about 3/4 of the yarn that knitting takes for similar clothing items.
- Practical. Not everything is beautiful, but everything is useful and if you plan on living sustainably I would suggest at least picking up the basics to make things from your knitting scraps like pot holders and dish scrubbers.
- Quick. After a little practice and getting the basics down you can whip out a hat in about thirty minutes, a pot scrubber in about 15...and a granny square in about 10. Honestly! It doesn't take long at all and that could also relate back to practical.
I made a few neat little patch-type pieces for Super M today. A few lacey patches, a few rounds, and three snowflakes that are wee (about 3/4 in.) and blue.
