What I’ve done…

Cue the song by Linkin Park…

Archiegrrl posted this meme in her blog the other day, and I’m stealing it because I’m a sucker for list memes…

Bold for things I’ve done, normal for things I haven’t, and italics for the stuff I want to learn OR need explained.

  • Afghan
  • I-cord
  • Garter stitch
  • Knitting with metal wire

  • Stockinette stitch
  • Socks: top-down
  • Socks: toe-up
  • Knitting with camel yarn

  • Knitting with recycled/secondhand yarn
  • Slip stitch patterns

  • Charity knitting
  • Knitting with soy yarn
  • Cardigan
  • Toy/doll clothing
  • Knitting with circular needles
  • Baby items
  • Knitting with your own handspun yarn — Never gonna happen. I don’t spin and don’t intend to learn.
  • Slippers
  • Graffiti knitting: knitting items on, or to be left on the street — No. And never will. I don’t like graffiti of any kind and think “yarn-bombing” is something that needs to go away. Now.
  • Continental knitting — I’ve knit this way for a few stitches but haven’t really gotten the hang of purling. Next year at Stitches South, I think I’ll take a class.
  • Designing knitted garments
  • Cable stitch patterns
  • Lace patterns
  • Publishing a knitting book

  • Knitting to make money
  • Norwegian knitting — Is this the lace knitting with nupps?
  • Knitting socks or other small tubular items on two circulars — I’ve read instructions for this technique, but haven’t quite figured out the process. I usually do small paired items on one circ using the two at a time method.
  • Dying with plant colors
  • Knitting items for a wedding
  • Olympic knitting — I assume this means participating in the Ravelympics; otherwise, I haven’t the faintest idea what this is.
  • Knitting with someone else’s handspun yarn
  • Knitting with dpns
  • Holiday related knitting — I assume this means knitting a gift. If it means making stockings or seasonal decor, then the answer is no.
  • Teaching a male how to knit
  • Bobbles
  • Knitting for a living
  • Knitting with cotton
  • Knitting smocking
  • Dying yarn

Courtesy of Strixaluco, I have been tagged for the Random Book Meme.

Here are the rules:

1. Grab your nearest book.

2. Open the book to page 123.

3. Find the fifth sentence.

4. Post the text of the next 3 sentences on your blog along with these instructions.

5. Tag 5 different people.

This might be interesting.  The book nearest me is this:

Page 123, 5th, 6th, 7th sentence:  Do this in batches, rather than crowding the skillet.  As you finish browning the chops, place one layer in the slow cooker.  Top with a proportionate amount of the soup. (From the recipe, "Slow Cooked Pork Chops", which I think I might make for dinner this evening: it looks pretty good!)

I tagged a bunch of people on LiveJournal.
