What’s The Difference Between Crochet and Knitting?

crocheting

At Salem Style, all of our handmade items are made by crochet. Crochet and knitting are similar that they both require a lot of dedication and skill, but there are key differences:

Supplies: Knitting is done with two needles, while crochet uses one hook.

How it’s made: Knitting can be done by hand, machine or loom while crochet is always 100% handmade.

Unraveling: A dropped knit stitch can cause it to unravel easily, while with crocheting, it’s less likely to unravel.

At the end of the day, they are both great, but we have chosen to stick with crochet.

Looking Back on 2019 – The Year of GROWTH

Oh man you guys. What an incredible year this has been. As I write this post, it’s Salem Style’s 8th Birthday! Who would have thought that 8 years later, I would be sitting here typing away to you all with the fullest hear imaginable. In January of 2019, I chose the word “growth”. Whatever action I took, or decision I had to make, I kept saying in my head “will this help me grow?” Turn out, yes, yes it did.

Thank you. Thank you all for this awesome year. I am totally blown away by the amount of support from everyone.

2019 was the BEST YEAR Salem Style has ever had. All thanks to you, the #salemstylesquad 

I’m already so excited for 2020!
