My First Meme

This list seems to me to have a lot of really standard stuff on it. I'd think most knitters have done at least a third of the items, maybe half. Odd list of yarns, though. Wool, camel, cashmere, silk, cotton, linen, synthetic, banana, bamboo, soy, dog, and cat. Where's the alpaca, llama, angora, yak, qiviut, rayon, viscose, Seacell, tencel (lyocel), ramie, and maize? Not that I've knitted with all of them myself, or anything, but it just seems like an odd list.

for stuff you’ve done, italics for stuff you plan to do one day, and normal for stuff you’re not planning on doing.

[1] On purpose, that is. I've done it by accident already.
[2] Again, I've done a lot of it without intending to. Collies, you see.

I doubt if I'll ever knit socks. I rarely wear them and, for some reason, I just can't see myself knitting them for other people. I don't know why. I don't have any issues with mittens, though.
