The Invisible Spool Knitting
Ever since I started publishing my work on the net people kept asking me, but how do you do that? is it crochet? is it knitting? what instrument do you use? how come your loops are so even?
I of course could not explain it with only words, some of my items I called knitted, some crocheted, no matter what title I used I kept getting friendly convos telling me na na na you are obviously using the wrong term.
Some people say that because I use a crochet hook it should be called crocheted, others say that although I use a crochet hook it should be called knitting.
I needles say that some were VERY confident about which term should be used.
I kept apologizing that I wasn't an English speaker, as if it wasn't clear.... and that maybe they were right. To be honest it wouldn't have been anymore easier in Hebrew, my mother tongue, or maybe it would have been because in Hebrew you use the same verb for both techniques =(SRIGA).
But I think that all of this in the past now, yesterday while I was discussing this issue with a very experienced lady both with crochet and with knitting we came to term that actually I was working on an invisible spool....
I immediately fell in love with this term and decided to adopt it, I wonder how it will be accepted. I hope it will be clear that it is NOT real spool knitting (personally I don't really like spools, especially with metal).
I would love to hear what you think.
