The Knitterly Hooker

Melding of the Worlds

I haven’t crocheted in years. I stopped because it was no longer my favorite thing to do. I associated it with pain.. In my wrists, fingers and shoulders. I found a replacement… knitting. Knitting to me was like a piece of pie. Sweet. It didn’t hurt my wrists and the fabric, beautiful and light. Heaven.

Today though, something changed. Nothing dramatic, but I decided to crochet again. Only just temporarily and test the waters. In my quest to design knitwear, my process has been halted my the dreaded yarn selection. Though that is paused, my design thirst had not ended and another avenue sought. Designing is a big deal for me, which I why I decided to start small. I initially wanted to use the fabulous knit lace rib stitch pattern, but it was epic fail. But luckily for more me, bright ideas do not come few and far between. It’s constant. I decided that I’d like to crochet a lacey piece and integrate some knitting.

This is where I’m at folks. I feel like there’s a way to meld crochet and knitting in one piece and it be extraordinary. That’s what I’m aiming for.

  1. I’m in the same boat, just at the other end of it. I gave up knitting when I learned crochet, and now I’m trying to get back into knitting 🙂 I think there’s a lot to be said for combining the two – can’t wait to see what you make!

    • It’s a great skill to know both knitting and crocheting. I’m happy you’ve been inspired to regroup and reconnect with knitting. Just remember to have fun! Thanks for the encouragement! I’m still working on the combo project! I’ll for sure share when it’s done!
