Knitting and purling backwards ~ I might enjoy entrelac and other short row techniques if I figured this out
Knitting smocking ~ what's this?
Knitting small tubular items on two circulars

Good idea to see where you stand knitting wise. When I get some time I'll have to do my inventory, too!

happy knitting :)
