Knitting meme

While I am on Picocon, I thought I would leave you entertained with a knitting meme.

So, you need to mark with bold the things you have done (where they don't specify it can be crochet or knitting), mark the ones you plan to do sometime in italics, and leave the rest.
I have actually added underlining some of the things that, while I don't actively plan to do, I won't be opposed to doing, if the pattern was right and called for it.

  • Afghan
  • American/English knitting - my normal knitting style

  • Bobbles
  • Buttonholes
  • Cable stitch patterns
  • Cardigan
