A friend of mine, Amy, inspired a bit of a Tongue Twister. (As I loved Tongue Twisters as a kid, this only seems fitting....)
Knitting is knotting, just not only knotting.
Crocheting is knotting, but it isn't knitting.
So it's fitting that knitting could also be called knotting,
although if crocheting is knotting
then shouldn't it be knitting?
