A knitting MEME

I saw this on Fiber Dreams and thought it would be interesting to try. It's my first meme! (Meme? MEME?)

Mark with bold the things you have knit at least once, with italics the ones you plan to do sometime, and leave the rest.

I added a * next to things that I think that maybe, someday, I'd like to try, but don't have any real plans for.

I tried to only italicize the things I think I have a reasonable chance at doing in the near future--I have plans for a pair or two of fingerless mitts, and for felted slippers for my dad. He's got huge feet (12 EEE), making socks seem a bit crazier than I can handle. They also make finding slippers that fit difficult. But I have patterns printed out already for both of those entries.

Someday I'd like to try Fair Isle, and steeking, and entrelac, but I don't see that happening anytime soon. Right now, I'm on a bit of a lace kick--two shawls on the needles, and plans for a third (also from VLT) as soon as I find some good yarn for it. I'm hoping to get out to Webs sometime this month, during their annual sale. If I do, it's on my list of things to look for!
