So with the return to knitting, I thought this meme would do me a load of good. I had to bold everything I have ever done in the world of knitting (which was a surprisingly long list), italicize all the things I want to do (which is a long list), and do nothing to the items I have no desire to do (which were very few items).

I liked this meme, because it is a to do list for me. If I can't think of something I want to try, I can go back to this. If I feel I haven't done many exciting things in the world of knitting, I can go back to this list. It supports AND challenges me all at once.

  1. Hey, if you want to knit the votive holders from Melanie Falick's Holiday Knitting (or whatever that book is called), I think I have some leftover beads and wire I could send you.
