Knitting Survey

The List Meme

Ahh, I have been taking a bit of a stroll through blog town today (I'm always a little bit behind) and found this list/survey on several blogs. I like Marguerite's rendition quite a lot. So, I will copy.

The official rules that go with the list meme are:

Bold for stuff you've done
Italics for stuff you plan to do eventually
normal for stuff you don't intend to do

Marguerite's Rules:

Bold for stuff I've done
Italics for stuff I plan to do eventually
Normal for stuff I have no plans to do
Red for stuff I see no reason to ever consider doing (But I reserve the right to change my mind.)
End meme with a cute pet picture with pet tongue showing.

I started my meme with a cute Gracie picture with her tongue showing.

Garter stitch
Knitting with metal wire - this just doesn't sound fun to me.
Stockinette stitch
Socks: top-down - I really like toe-up...but I'm considering the possibilities
Socks: toe-up
Knitting with camel yarn - does this mean with yarn from camels (like alpaca is from alpacas?) or actual camel colored yarn. Either way, my answer remains.

Mittens: Tip-down - I know I will enjoy this now that I know (and love) short rows
Hat - more than I care to count.
