The pull of crochet

Since teaching myself to crochet last Spring (courtesy of The Happy Hooker) I've completed at least a dozen crocheted projects.
I have grand plans to do many, many more.
It worries me a little, this (almost) turning away from the thing I love so much, this flirtation with the other yarn craft.
I'm still knitting somewhat, but what I'd like to knit right now seems like it would take too long. Crocheting just seems so much faster.
It's to the point that I'm seriously thinking about making an afghan. An afghan!! That's a blanket! That's a freakin' huge project. And I'm just looking for the right yarn at the right price. But I want to crochet it. I can't imagine knitting something that big.
Another thing about crochet is that I seem to be easier-able to experiment with it. I suspect I may be able to create crochet patterns fairly soon.
I'm pretty sure I'll get back to knitting more frequently sometime soon. But I'm also certain that I'll keep crocheting as a staple in my repertoire. How could I not?
