Knitting skillz (a meme)

Tuesday, November 06, 2007
So the idea of this is to note what I've done at some point (and remember, I've been knitting for a long time) in bold, what I plan to do in italics, and leave that which I am not interested in in plan text. I'm making an additional temporal note: anything that I've done in the last year or plan to do in the next year is blue. In addition, the librarian in me couldn't handle an unordered, redundant list, and so I reordered and categorized it.
