Awesome :) Some of the entries in this contest got inspired me enough to learn how to knit :) Just thought that would make some of the entrants happy :)
Am smiling here - because some of the entries inspire me to learn to crochet. I am a knitter, but want to learn to crochet based on what I am seeing here!!!

i find crochet much easier than knitting. i've made attempts at knitting a few times and just flail a lot, whereas crochet is the perfect level of fidgeting activity for me.

It's definitely faster for me, and easier to make oddly-shaped pieces!

Knitting still looks more polished, though, which is important if making something to wear. I can also do it without looking too frequently, whereas in crochet you have to look down for every stitch, especially with those awesome fuzzy yarns.

I definitely like crochet better because I find it easier to make more intricate and difficult things than with knitting. Basic knitting may be a little easier than basic crochet, but I had a hard time doing anything close to advanced with knitting. Knitting seems to be more popular though, because it seems easier to find cool patterns and most yarn stores seem to stock mostly knitting notions. Or at least that's been my experience so far! Maybe it's different in other places :).
Good for you! I bet they'll be especially happy that you're male. ;) Is there anything specific you'd like to try?

I was hoping I was going to win but didn't expect it because there were so much of a competition in this challenge. I did win and am soooo thrilled. I can't wait to get some more projects started now. YEAH!!!! Congrats to the rest of the winners as well. This was so much fun...
Your afghan is absolutely beautiful and was a deserving winner. It was a fun contest wasn't it? I got lots of great ideas and new patterns to play with in the future. Hope you will keep on making things - especially now you have $25 of yarn to play with - and post the results on the site.
