Mr. Random chose comment #23 as our winner of the Block Party book. That's "MLE Knits" who said, "Crochet definitely came easier for me, but I was determined to become proficient in knitting because honestly I like the look of the finished results better and I think there is just more room for variety with knitting. I still enjoy crocheting every once in a blue moon though (especially when I see the things One Flew Over crochets)!"
You know I feel the same way - I love the look of knitting for clothing because it doesn't have all the holes. But, I do appreciate the possibilities of crochet, especially for really colorful work a la granny squares and zigzag stripes. Oh to be proficient at everything! Well, there's plenty of time yet.

You know, someone suggested a crochet-a-long. I wonder if that's a good idea? Maybe sometime this fall. And what would we want to make? I'll put my thinking cap on....
