The knitting checklist

I saw this on some other blogs and decided to give it a try.

Bold = stuff you’ve done, italics = stuff you plan to do one day, and normal = stuff you’re not planning on doing.

Garter stitch
Knitting with metal wire and I'm glad I got that one out of the way, because I don't think my wrists are up for it anymore.
Stockinette stitch
Socks: top-down
Socks: toe-up
Knitting with camel yarn (maybe)
Mittens: Cuff-up
Mittens: Tip-down
Knitting with silk
Moebius band knitting
Participating in a KAL
Drop stitch patterns
Knitting with recycled/secondhand yarn (maybe)
Slip stitch patterns
Knitting with banana fiber yarn (maybe)
Domino knitting (=modular knitting) (I think--does the Moderne blanket count?)
Twisted stitch patterns
Knitting with bamboo yarn
Two end knitting (Since I have to ask what this is, the answer is probably no I haven't done it but I probably wouldn't mind trying)
Charity knitting
Knitting with soy yarn
Toy/doll clothing
Knitting with circular needles
Baby items
Knitting with your own handspun yarn (I might knit what I've spun, but it doesn't really qualify as yarn)

Continental knitting
Designing knitted garments
Cable stitch patterns (incl. Aran)

I like your style of pattern writing. The one pattern I ever "wrote" was in a similar vein. Lots of "cast on a goodly number of stitches" or the similar.
