Knitting Experience Meme

Edited: to fix mistakes from posting too fast and to (hopefully) fix the little problem of bold and italics not showing up in bloglines and making it look like I've never knit stockinette stitch! (thanks Specs!)

I found this via Eve and Kate.

Instructions: Mark with bold the things you have knit (or are knitting), with italics the ones you plan to do sometime, and leave the rest.

Eve introduced an extra bit: link to pages if they’ve been documented!

Heh. So, the formating for this doesn't work exactly right on bloglines. Only the things with links are bold (bolded? emboldened?) and everything else looks normal. I made a horrified little gasp when I read that you'd never knit stockinette.

You'd helped me a few months ago with suggestions on yarn shopping in St Petersburg. The yarn has finally arrived and I wanted to thank you for your help. I wonder if you got my mail?
In any case, thank you so much for your help!
