knitting meme

I picked this up from Amelia of "Ask the Bellwether" . It has been bouncing around the knit blog-spear for a little more than a month. Amelia traced it back to "cosymakes" , I looked back farther to find the author: Rineke of "tingletangle" from Denmark. She created the knitting meme on April 6th in the same fashion of " the meme of books". I've never heard of it but it is an interesting excerise that I have decided to join in on.

In Rineke's words: this meme "is one with knitting techniques, habits, items, tools and materials. Not everything is there, but quite a lot. Mark with bold the things you have ever done, with italics, the ones you plan to do sometime, and leave the rest."

Here's mine:

Congrats on finding the originator of the meme! I wonder how much deeper I would have need to have dug!

Ha! I found you back! What a nice blog you have - I have to read all of your cleaning the wool (just started to spin myself and I know somebody who knows somebody with too many fleeces). As it turns out, the meme did not even travel that much before it came to you - I know cosymakes from flickr so you're 3 steps away. Distance is nothing on the internet.
Thanks for commenting on my blog - it is so nice to get to know more people!
cheers, Rineke
