Do YOU Knit?

I've known how to knit for a while but I rarely ever finish what I start.

Why? It's SLOW. Well slow for me anyway. However it doesn't mean it isn't awesome. I've always been fascinated about how different crochet and knitting is and sometimes its nice to have a change of pace and learn something different.    

Some of the things that attracts me to knitting is the fact that the fabric is thinner than crochet if you are using the same yarn which is convenient if you live the Texas heat like I do. (Its November and we are still in 80 degree weather) I think the best difference it that it uses LESS yarn!

So as an experiment I am taking a ball of Lion Brand's Shawl in a Ball and I am designing a wrap/scarf that is going to have a knitted and crocheted version just to see the difference in size with the same 518 yards.

I'm ALMOST finished with my knitted version. (THOSE COLORS!)

Do you knit, crochet, or both? Let me know!
