Yup, all this would apply to crochet too. Crochet is more likely to have lots of different colours worked one at a time in the same project, as you’ve seen your wife do, rather than actively using two colours at the same time. Probably less likely to use yarn in hank form, unless it came that way because it was dyed or spun by an independent artist, and probably switches colours quite often rather than making a whole project out of just one piece of yarn. (This is an oversimplification, of course, you can make anything with either knitting or crochet, but crochet tends to be used for multicomponant things like toys or blanket squares, and knitting for clothing and large one-piece blankets.)
