Some people are taught to knit when they are young.

Are you able to knit or crochet?

Do you still do either or both of these?

Who do you knit for and what type of items?

I crochet. My mum taught me. She has been been Grand Champion in the local Show year after year. I wasn't interested in learning most of my teenage years, but as I grew up, I realised the value in having learned this valuable skill. I play around with crochet mostly in the cooler months.

I cannot knit to save myself. Two needles seems very challenging for some reason.

Hi Finy,
Maybe I should put something up that shows basic stitches in crochet and we can swap 'how-to'? :) I would love to master knitting, but I think I need a lot of supervision! S
Knitting is great - I've made quite a few scarves, a few of which I've given to people as presents. If you have the time, it's a relaxing pastime.
Neither, although I have learnt how to do both. I am a consumer...
I know how to knit, but much prefer to crochet. Picking up dropped stitches is so much easier with crochet. Dropped knitting stitches used to drive me mad, and I hardly ever managed to complete my knitting projects.
I often spend Autumn crocheting a new rug every year.
Not this year though, It's been begun, but with winter being more than half over, it may have to wait for 2015 to be finished.

I knitted a scarf once, but I'm out of practice nowdays. Besides, there isn't much time for that now.

Yes, I make crochet jewelry. I know how to knit too.
I use too.

But that was a few decades ago.

Not time now, far too much in my day that I am time-poor.
I do both and have done so since I was four years old when I was taught how to knit. At the age of 13 I taught my self to crochet which was made me quite the renegade as all my family was knitters! I use to knit for my daughter when she was little, but I would get my Nanna to sew it together, I was to impatient for that part. Now I mainly crochet blankets for my family members. I don't call them rugs, I call them HUGS as they know that with each stich there has been some of my love put in them. When I can't be there my HUGS can be. I also make them to donate to the Wraps for Love project. It gives me something to do when I sit and watch television and I get a kick out of my efforts making a difference in someones life.
I know how to knit, but I don't do it because it is cheaper to buy sweaters and scarves.
I used to do both! I taught myself to knit when I was stuck in hospital for most of my pregnancy! I decided to learn something a bit more interesting that straight old Knit/purl,and I knitted a fine lace shawl for the baby which I still have!!
I learnt to knit as a child. Mum was a great knitter so she taught me. I was a Brownie and had to do knitting for at least one of the badges I got. I didn't enjoy it so did not continue to knit. i enjoyed other crafts and hobbies more.
My Dad taught me to knit when I was about 8. I knitted for our children but in later years knitted rugs, jumpers and beanies for O'seas missions. I also crochet edges around flannelette to make bunny rugs. I give 6 for 1st baby and 2 for subsequent babies unless it's the opposite sex and I give 4. - always useful.
Can knit, but haven't bothered for decades!
Can't crochet, but my Grandmother did beautiful work. Once did a WHOLE bedspread to be raffled at a Fete!
I've still got my Mum's good Irish linen hankies, which Nanna crocheted around the edges. They'd be at least 60 yo now, but still look beautiful, all starched & pressed.
I can crochet and have made lots odf things - bedspread, edges on doilies, toys. Knitting is too hard to fix mistakes. I can do a simple scarf but have never tried anything else.
I knit or rather I used to knit a lot.
I am half way through a blanket I started years ago.
I learnt to crochet however do not do it much.

I used to knit mainly jumpers for the family when I had more time. However in saying that I bought skeins of a beautiful Dutch wool about 45 years ago and the pattern was for cable stitch up the sleeves but becauseIi couldn't decide on the length of the sleeves as in whether I wanted the cuff to be turned back, to this day it remains unfinished in the top of my wardrobe. If I was to finish it now it wouldn't fit me so it is something that one day I may get around to finishing it.
No, I'm not a person to crochet or knit, I have tried it, but don't have the patience, I think I drove my mum mad while she was trying to teach me.
