Friday Confession: I don't know how to knit

Knitting is one of those things that seems to be synonymous with craft for some folks. It's also what many assume you're doing if they see you out and about with yarn and some type of needle.

And since I own a craft truck, surely I know how to knit?

Confession: I don't.

I have a personal stockpile of yarn (in yummy colors and delicious textures). I have a bag and a bin and maybe another smallish box of unfinished yarny projects. I have needles in varying sizes. And I love the texture of a finished piece. But I never learned to knit.

I don't have anything against it. In fact, I'm always rather in awe of the beautiful pieces I see knitters create. But crochetting is the thing my grandmother taught me to do and I just haven't gotten around to taking a class on knitting. Perhaps I'm afraid of those pointy needles...or the fact that you need more than one to create. Or maybe I'm just afraid that my love of yarn would really get out of hand if I added another method of using it. Or maybe it's that I still have so much to learn about crochet first.

Regardless, I love seeing a ball of yarn become something else entirely--no matter the type of needle that helped it get there.
