Knit. Only because I can't seem to get the hang of crochet.

I can do both. I started off with crochet. I like them both equally, but for different things.

Re: Knit vs. Crochet

I just learned to crochet (I've know how to knit for years) and am really enjoying it. I like them both for different purposes. I learned to crochet to make toys, I love how they look and how it is so easy and quick to make shapes, but I like the look of knit clothing much better.

I do both, I enjoy knitting better, although there are certain projects I'll whip out my crochet needles for, just because it's better.
