Crochet Thread

Recently, I have been working on a skirt the color of red velvet cake.  Underneath it, I wanted to create a tulle effect, so I decided to use white crochet thread, as opposed to white yarn.  That got me to think, “Why is it called crochet thread if you can knit with it, too?”  There’s nothing wrong with it.  It gives the piece a stiffer effect, and, when worked in stockinette st, it doesn’t curl up as much.  When worked on larger needles, it almost looks like it’s knitted in openwork.  My point is, crochet thread should not be limited to crocheting, especially if it looks as good (if not better) knitted.
