First off, the blushes in animation are exaggerated, so that's not a decent reason.
Well, I think that Katara is ignorant of the crush. After all, a lot of people may be good at decoding feelings directed at other people, but when it's someone's feelings towards themselves... it gets hard. (An example would be Danny and Sam from the show Danny Phantom).
And if Katara DOES know, it is only sub-consciously. Seeing as she hasn't made a move yet (whether it's positive or negative), she's probably employing self-deception against it. I think that that would have started right after the Fortuneteller. We see Katara look pensive at the thought of Aang possible being the powerful bender she was to marry, but in following episodes, there are no moments shown where she has dwelled upon this again.
So I believe that Katara is definitely not consciously aware of Aang's feelings, or just is oblivious. I think she'll stay oblivious until either she starts to fall in love with him, or he confesses.

I think that she is trying to find out whether Aang likes her,maybe at the end of that one eppisode(I think it was the Earth king one) she kissed him on the cheek(I think she did,haven't seen eppisode in 1/2 of a year),so she can see how he reacts. The thing is that Aang is good at holding down imediate emotions,so his facial reactions dont say enough.
Hmm... well, Katara might think that it's not a crush or anything, but awkwardness. It's natural to feel that way around people who are older than you. I think Katara knows but considers Aang's feelings for her to be platonic. They're practically best friends, but well... best friends can show affection for each other (the kiss). I think Katara knows but thinks it's unlikely for Aang to love her romantically, so she's afraid of his reaction if she asks. I mean, she might think of the age difference and think, Well, I'm older than him. Is is possible for him to like me that way?
Take her hand. Take her heart. And fly into the silent night. Break her bonds. Set her free. And give the blind girl endless sight.
