I have however learned a few really cool techniques I hadn't heard of until recently. First, is knooking! it's a really cool way for crocheters to get a knit look! Check out this simple video of the knit stitch:

I can't wait to try this out! I suppose first, I'll have to get a crochet hook modified!
And then there's the new (to me) method of the purl stitch, when you're knitting continentally, the Norwegian purl:
I can throw my yarn, and can knit continental, but I think will stick to continental when I figure this move out! Think about how much quicker it will go! It will probably convince me to knit more too.
Alright, I hope this is all helpful to someone else out there!
