Catty Knitting

Hi!!! Does anyone else knit? I got a pattern book recently called Pat Projects because it was the only place I could find the below pattern,it's supposed to be a giant mouse-skin rug. I haven't added the whiskers yet but I think it came out okay. I can send a copy of the pattern to anyone who might want it, it's a super easy project

that's really cute!
I don't knit but I crochet. I've crocheted a few cat toys that the cats really enjoy. Sure beats buying them at the pet store.

I knit and crochet. I had an afghan that Petey loves. I say "had" because it is now his bed. I had to crochet myself a new afghan for the cold winter nights on the couch.

That's a really cute 'rug'. I don't knit, but I do crochet. Since we got Silas, I have made him two squids, which he really likes a lot, and a teeny tiny lobster. All free patterns online. He drags the squids around by the yarn braid at the top of the head, and he is so funny to watch--this little kitten pulling his toy around. He is a character!

This is probably a dumb question but what the heck is the difference between knitting and crocheting?? My grandma used to crochet and that rug looks a little like something she would make... I always wanted to learn but it hurt my brain trying to watch her do it Very cute rug by the way!

I think this article gives a pretty good overview of the differences
What is the Difference Between Knit and Crochet?

Knit fabric has more stretch and elasticity to it, so I think it's better for garments & sweaters. Crochet is a bit more bulky, but since it's worked one stitch at a time, you can get some interesting shapes and motifs with it. Both crafts work well for things like hats, scarves and blankets.

My mom used to crochet and she showed me the very basic stitch so I at least know how to do that. However, I'd like to learn how to really crochet. Any suggestions/recommendations on where I can look for directions? Thanks!
