What is graffiti knitting? I guess that means I've never done it!

Well, dang. I guess I have done a few things in my life. That list needs a bunch more entries, though. And I don't have time right now to add them. Except maybe "knit from a pattern in a language you don't speak."

What a great list.  When it's all laid out like that it's easy to see all the new and wonderful things I have yet to try.

Would you mind if I used it on my blog?
