I saw this at Bottle and Ball.

Black = Have done
Red = Would like to do
Gray = No thank you

  • Afghan (I started some Tetris-y squares when I first learned to knit, but finally abandoned the dream that I’d finish it someday. My whole style of knitting switched in there somewhere and the swatches really aren’t line-up-able.)
  • I-cord (used for straps on a shirt)
  • Garter stitch (the first thing everyone learns right?, sure I avoid it now, but has any knitter NOT knit garter?)
  • Knitting with metal wire (I can do prettier things with metal wire than knit it.)
  • Shawl
  • Stockinette stitch
  • Socks: top-down
  • Socks: toe-up (well, A sock anyway…)
  • Knitting with camel yarn (not vegan)

  • Hat (I made tons of hats when I first learned to knit, and tons more since.)
