Shrug/bolero/poncho
Knitting with dog/cat hair – Sketch wool is the best!
Hair accessories
Knitting in public – pretty much EVERY time I go out, do I get extra points for spinning in public?

Not bad for a beginning knitter. I’m actually proud of the mass of bold. There really isn’t anything on this list I wouldn’t try, and more things that I’ve tried that aren’t even on here! Where’s the two-at-a-time socks? The size 0000 needles? Knitting with magnetic tape from old VHS? Knitting for swaps? Self-taught? The super stretchy cast off? Kitchener stitching up a seam and the funky cast on that goes with it? Taught someone more than a decade older than you to knit/a new technique? Inventing a new method for dyeing protein based fibers? Been named the “Yarn Doctor” at Michael’s Arts and Crafts to help folks at their yarn events? Been there, done them…and I want extra bold for ’em!

And yes, guy pal had to learn to knit. He only does knit stitches, and only enough to add a few stitches of extra love to each hat I knit.
