Do I have a balanced craft life? No. Hell no! For me it’s all about the hook.
I do know how to knit though. I was taught to knit in school and my mom knits. But to me knitting is just a bit boring and everyone does it.
I think Stephanie of ObeyCrochet feels the same way as I do.
There are machines that can replicate knitting, whereas no machine can truely replicate crochet. I like to be a bit different and I’m proud of the fact that I use yarn in a way that no machine can.
I also can’t imagine my life without a granny square. Really. That would just be unthinkable!
Crafting balance. Hmpfh, what crafting balance?
I’m with you on the crochet v. Knitting thing. I can knit too but also find it a bit boring. My crochet is balanced opposite sewing instead.

Love your passion, and the cartoon made me laugh. I personally do both, but more crochet, which is so versatile.

It’s true that it’s so neat that we can do a craft that a machine can’t do. It’s rare these days.
Another fun fact about crochet is that it was historically first done by women. Most crafts, including knitting, were first done by men.
Love the cartoon! I’m a hooker through and through, can barely knit. Though I do so love the look of knitting, I wish I was better at it.
Thank you for this cartoon and sharing your way of thinking.
I do both: knitting and crocheting. And it’s always changing what is boring to me at a certain time.
So: crafting balance is not really necessary – it’s just a very personal thing 😉

Yep, if you see a crochet item, you know there was labor of love involved!
My ‘balance’ has always leaned to just one hook !!
