Knit This

Since I have no actual content for you today, here is a knitting MEME and a kitty picture…

Mouse Play 1

(Though this is a knitting MEME, I plan to note the things I’ve done with crochet, as well. An asterisk before the name means I’ve done the thing in question with crochet, in addition to any markings that apply to the knitting.)

Mark with bold the things you have ever done, with italics, the ones you plan to do sometime, and leave the rest.
