Stolen Post

Sorry that I haven't posted in a while. Later today I may be able to make a further post. For now, please enjoy this one which I had saved for just such an occasion.

I stole this from yarnthulhu. I linked to her from the Knitty Coffeeshop, but I doubt she's ever heard of me. I'd love to see my readers' responses to the list, if they feel like it.

But, look at all the stuff I’ve tried! It makes me feel better about my knitting ability/level. I altered the list a little. I hope the original author doesn't mind. I don't think that person is yarnthulhu, but it may be.

Bold for stuff you’ve done,

Italics for stuff you intend to do one day, and
