My First Meme

Anne/acambras tagged me for the knitting meme – things you’ve done, things you want to do, things you have no interest in doing. I’ve never done a meme before – this is fun. Stuff I’ve done is in bold. Stuff I plan to do one day is in italics, and stuff I’m not planning on doing is normal. Here goes:
