I'm learning crochet!

I finished my first crochet project! This scarf is from the new SNB Happy Hooker




I am actually pretty pleased with it. It took me about two nights to finish. I was so surprised at how quick crochet is compared to knit.

Now I am working on a stripped tank top...also from Debbie Stoller's book.



This one is taking me a little longer than the other but the thread is so thin and I haven't been working on it very consistently. I am taking a break for some Mother's day knitting and will hopefully get back to it soon.

Here's a close upof the stitches.

Nice even crochet stitches! Wow.
So is crocheting quick? Is it difficult to learn?
I am knitting a sweater that has crochet edges ... and will have to learn.

I tried crochet out last year and just didn't get it. But Debbie Stoller seems to put it in a way that just made sense. Now I am finding it pretty simple.
