Knitting Techniques List

I've seen this list around for a while, and always meant to do my own version, but never got round to it. Then I saw it on Kate's blog, and decided just to go for it :)

The idea is that you mark with bold the things you have done, mark the ones you plan to do sometime in italics, and leave the rest in plain text. I'm going to include things I've done in crochet too. :)
