    Nice list. I posted one too--it's interesting that our "No Way" list is similar. And I don't know about you, but I was surprised that I was able to bold so many items. I still feel like such a knitting newbie!

    Unsurprisingly, you're very accomplished. I'm not sure why you didn't bold Olympic knitting, though. If you hadn't done that, I'm not sure I'd even know you!
