My husband just challenged me to crochet blind, I think these are some of the most uniform stitches I've ever made.

I went in to this challenge knowing I'd be able to do it, but didn't realize my stitches would look so good. I thought there would be a mistake somewhere at least. Guess not.

Is it true that knitting has a lot more different stitches than in crochet?

I've heard this a few times, always from knitters. Is this actually true?

I just thumbed through a book of crochet stitches and there were hundreds. And some looked sooooo different from the others! Hard to believe they're all made by the same hook.

Anyone here both a knitter and crocheter and know the answer?

It took me about 20 years to decide I could attempt clothing.

I may never do it again but I'm proud of myself.

Why do people say their amigurumi made with plush yarn is eco-friendly?

This is more of a rant. Since I'm searching more and more on Instagram about crochet, I'm seeing more ads of profiles that are selling crochet stuff (toys the most, but baby boots and cardigans as well) made with plush yarn and claiming that is eco-friendly and safe for babies. And making reels about "why you should buy handmade crochet toy" and adding "because it's eco-friendly", while they are only working with plush yarn.

I understand if you are working with cotton and you can somewhat say that is eco-friendly comparing to mass produced toys, but claiming that 100% polyester yarn is safe for babies and eco-friendly... It grinds my gears.

My first attempt at crocheting

I’m so excited to post my first finished piece. It’s the Hello Kitty wooble kit. I pretty much struggled the entire time right up to the last part to make, which was the bow. I’m also bad about starting things but not finishing. I am proud of myself for seeing it through and can’t wait to start working on another project. It’s not perfect but it is mine. 🥰

Start of my sunburst granny square blanket! Pink border or no?

Hi everyone!

I started this blanket and I put a pink border on the corner square. Do you think I should put the border on all the squares? It makes them lay flatter. Or a hould I do a grey border? I was thinking I would do a pink border around all the squares and then do a grey bobble border at the end. Thanks for the advice!

Blanket for my sister

Working on Christmas gifts for all the ladies in my life. This is the blanket I'm making for my sister. Her last name is Fish, so I thought it would be cute to make her a scales blanket. I've got a long way to go, but I have a feeling it's going to be hard to let go of it in the end haha!

Untangling yarn

Anyone have any good tips for untangling yarn? I feel like I spend a decent time trying to untangle the yarn and get so frustrated I cut it which I know is bad. Idk why it keeps happening where it looks like the Pokémon Tangela 😂
