I am doing it! So far so good. I am now on my seventh square and am enjoying knitting! I'm certainly not as fast as when I crochet but this is only my second project. I do find the repetition of this pattern (garter stitch - so very easy) makes for better coordination with the needles. Maybe by the end of this project I will be able to incorporate some new stitches in.
My technique is somewhat different but the results aren't bad. I do have trouble casting on right now, but it seems to be straightened out after the first row is knit.
I even get the needles to click once in a while!
