Team Hooker! For Crocheters Who Knit...

(Some) knitters talk all the time about how they know enough crochet to work a simple edging, but rarely do crocheters talk about what they know about knitting. In the event of the 2006 Knitting Olympics, we've decided to take the challenge to knit something even though we might feel more comfortable crocheting. And we think it'll be fun to chat with other crocheters about knitting.

Kim's already swatching for her sweater--you can read more about it on her blog, and Amy is going to complete her first pair of knitted socks And the first anything she's made for herself in a long time.

Wanna join in? Just leave us a comment (be sure to include your email address) or send us an email and we'll add you to this blog.

Already a member of another team? Cool! You can totally cross-post about your progress here. But do let us know about uniquely crochet-y things, too.

A button's coming!

Add my name to the roster for Team Hooker! I am keeping my knitting olympic event rather simple with a felted bag.......but it is my first knitting project other than a dishcloth, so it will be a challenge for me! And I am trying to double medal with an entry in the Crochet Olympics! Go Team Hooker!!

Ooh, I'd love to join Team Hooker! I'm already on Team Canada (knitting) but I've only been knitting for about a month so I'd feel at home here! Can I play for both teams?

I both knit and crochet and truly enjoy them both. I'm signed up to knit the Felted Enterlac Tote from Knit Picks. I'm tickled to finally be motivated to learn enterlac.

I'm also signed up for the Crochet Olympics, going to crochet fingerless mitts for charity.

OK, OK, I'll join! I am feeling very busy, but can't turn down a challenge. Though I've knit a grown-up sweater, three masters level classes this semester has radically changed my schedule, so I feel I will be fully challenged with a lovely lil' baby sweater -- and I have two (wait, now three!) friends who are preggers. Details to come here and/or at my blog!

I have just recently started knitting, but because I could not think of anything short of a full afghan (which I hate to make) to crochet for the olympics, I joined the Knitting Olympics. I will be knitting the Linie 89 sweater from elann.com
