I'm not great at a lot of crafts because I don't know anything about them.
Superb with clay though - made a giant 15'' h x 10'' w Egyptian urn using the coil method (no potter wheel) in the first go with clay during high school.
My teacher was like, "Wow I've never seen a noob do this before" and "I'm surprised you used the coil method so well" and got an A+, and the teacher used it for bragging rights for a few days before giving it back to me. redface

It's just based on my personality, I guess? (Virtuoso personality type)
If something interests me, I can wing it so well that people ask me if I'm basically trained at something - to which I'm not.
Also if I'm near a person that makes me feel competitive, I can basically blast them out of the water when I learn from what they're doing; when I'm not feeling competitive, I'm 'meh, whatever' about it and show either slight interest or disinterest and usually just walk away to find something interesting.
My competitive streak is really slim though, maybe like a 5% chance of it happening. sweatdrop

Knitting seems too laid-back for my tastes.
If anything, I'd be around the house doing other things - repairing and maintenancing bicycles, using my tool kit to fix up stuff around the house, painting shelves, measuring distances and charting it on graph paper, and spending my time on Gaia.
Also since it's a bit of a repetitive piece of work, I'd get bored and move on super quickly. sweatdrop
I'm more guy-ish, so I'd rather something with more energy in it, like playing tennis against someone. sweatdrop

Speaking of other crafts - I've tried clay modeling - my mom never gives me alone time, so each time I buy clay, it ends up in the trash.
(She has no hobbies besides watching TV so she doesn't understand.) sweatdrop
I'm not great at painting - again, it's a patience thing.
If it came to splatter painting, I'd probably go at it like an angry sword wielder. lol

Nah it's ok, knitting isn't my kind of thing.
It requires extreme patience and can be repetitive (like, making lots of long scarves and such.)
As a person who does something for a short period of time before bouncing off to the next subject, and the next, it'd just be another unfinished project for 5+ years in a corner. sweatdrop

I stay away from knitting, that's definitely not for me. talk2hand

Me + anything similar to a string = augh what happened how did i get caught in this tangled mess emotion_0A0
Sometimes I've been in situations where a yarn thread ended up with me getting tangled up on myself, the ball of yarn, and I don't even remember the other objects - but I had to seek help.
In my defense, it started it.
...It also won the fight. emo

I'm not really that great at it myself, but I do it just because I feel like it.
People: "You'll get better! Years of practice!"
(Years later - my art is basically the same.) lol

I've only got one image on Imgur, and that's me in my signature. XD
I was recently into the site to check it out and left it at that for now.
My DA account is mainly screenshot images and my drawings.

Wow, that sucks.
Stupid photobucket, ruining everything great. emotion_donotwant / emo

I just tend to look around in Google at images, then use URL pasting because I'm a cheap know-nothing when it comes to coding.
Years ago (before my old computer died) I was great at coding profiles.
Now - next to nothing, and it frustrates me so much that I can't even make a single successful attempt.
And without Photobucket, that's sucky, but I've been moving images over to my DeviantArt account, so it's not too much of a setback for me - it'd be online, at least, if I needed one of my own images.
