Hello my cheeky monkeys :)
I totally nicked this from Sallee by way of Margene and if the other kewl kids are doing it, who am I to argue?
Actually, it was pretty eye-opening to see all the different aspects of knitting I've done, will do and those few "not unless hell freezes over" techniques, heh.
Consider yourself tagged if you so desire.
Bold for stuff you've done, italics for stuff you plan to do eventually and normal for stuff you don't intend to do (this is the category those "frozen hades" techniques fall under too!)

Speaking of KIPing, it's that time of year again!! June 9th is WORLD WIDE KNIT IN PUBLIC DAY!!!!
If you check the link, there are lots of WWKIP Day groups from all around the globe getting their needles ready to knit in public! One thing I haven't seen is a button for this year's WWKIP Day so maybe some photoshop owning, talented knitter would be willing to volunteer their button making skills and come up with a cool button we can all put on our blogs?
Let's all get those needles ready and mark your calendars for June 9th and let's ALL KIP from every corner of the globe!!
I'll leave you with a favorite Pumpkin pic....
