Very interesting! I see stuff on that list that I didn't even know about! What is two end knitting?
I'll definitely post this! :) I wonder though, does it count if we only tried something a little but didn't like it? ;)

Amybel said...

Yes, it counts! It also counts if you tried something and were not very good at it (ahem, continental knitting)!

Well my that was a long list. I am not sure what two ended knitting is, but I'm pretty sure I haven't tried it yet. Is continental knitting where you knit with your left hand if your right handed? Cuz I have done that but was not sure if that is what was meant.
