I am not a bigot

I believe that crochet has a place in this world. I really do. I may even try it someday. I bought Deb Stollers book The Happy Hooker, and looked through it. I liked looking through it. (which is a good sign. Often with "crafty things" books, they get consigned to be sold on eBay or placed somewhere in the vicinity of the trash can, depending) What I am having trouble with is an idea that seems pervasive in the knit/crochet world now. That is the idea that all your knitting must be festooned with crochet. Or vice versa.

Hey - it looks great, don't get me wrong, but I see two problems.

Problem 1.) The knitters who do not crochet are not going to be able to make something they otherwise might love making/wearing.

There's always a temption to incorporate crochet and knitting into a single project but that's not always a good thing :)
