The all FAMOUS Knitting Survey

I was tagged for a SECOND time and told I have the possibility of being tagged for a third and fourth. Well, I am not doing another 21 random things so I decided to do the knitting survey instead, LOL.

When I first saw this survey on Mommy Susy Knits blog a few days ago, I was in awe of all that she had done. Then it kept popping up on several other blogs I frequent so I copied it down and thought I'd get to it eventually. However, since the prospect of being tagged so often occurred, I actually looked at it and was shocked at all I have actually tried and I think I owe that thanks to you all. As I was emailing Jessica this morning it did occur to me though, that I try a lot of new things when I knit up washclothes. So, if you have never tried one, you really should.

With that said.....

What have you learned to do that has marked a definite change in your knitting

nitting blogs, KAL's and Swaps have helped me to meet lots of other knitters around the States and the world which has helped me meet some of the most AMAZING new friends

(Did you see the sock section? One of these days if I find yarn that is thick enough with big enough needles *wink*)

I'm so used to knitting socks now that whenever I try to knit with anything larger than a 9, I feel like I'm holding tree branches.

That doll was on really small needles, wasn't it? So, you're halfway there! ;)

Wow! You really have done a lot. I'll bet more that you realized. That's what happened to me. Congratulations.
