2. I really want to learn to crochet too
I can do all the stitches (well, once upon a time I could -- I'd have to review everything except chain stitch), but I could never get the gauge right. Seems so simple -- don't know what my problem was. I never had any trouble with gauge when knitting. :shrug: Any tips?

I just ran across something I saved from the 1970s or so, a little pamphlet with the most beautiful crocheted collars and even cuffs. Simply beautiful stuff. There's one with roses on it, another filet crochet (which I've always loved), and several others. Very, very beautiful. I love knitting, but every now and then I see something in crochet that I really want to do -- and of course, crochet is a very popular finishing for knitted items anyway. A little more familiarity (and comfort level!) would be very nice for my KNITTING.
