Knitting Related Meme

I was killing some time on Ravelry and found a RAK group -- very cool idea -- and one member wanted people to check out her blog and comment. I did, and she had this great meme posted.

It is a list of knitting techniques, you are supposed to bold the ones you have tried, italicise the ones you want to try and leave the rest in plain text. After I published, I realized that my blog shows the same for bold and plain text! ACK! So, the things I have tried will be green and the things I want to try will be red and the rest will be black!

Hi Dana,

Thank you for coming over for a visit :) I'm glad you enjoyed the Meme I picked up from Dana at Yarnsatiated, another Ravelry member.
I had been tossing around an idea for a Meme when I saw hers and thought it was perfect!
