2012 Stolen Knitting Meme

I just spent a few minutes updating this stolen knitting meme from August 2010. It’s amazing to see how I’ve progressed over the past two and a half years. I hope 2013 brings new knitting and spinning challenges thereby allowing me to mark off a few more items on this list.

Have you created a list of knitting techniques you’d like to challenge yourself with? I highly recommend it especially if you’re looking to become a better knitter. Just copy the list below and create your very own. Bold stuff you’ve done, italics for stuff you’d like to do one day and normal for stuff you’re not planning on doing.
