looking through old posts l realize it’s been almost 2 years since l first made this post and sort of a “bucket list” of knitting goals. so l just wanted to update this for myself, but l thought it would also be interesting if anyone else wanted to update theirs or even make one after reading through this list 🙂 so the crossed out items are from previous experience, the crossed out in bold is what l’ve since completed since the original post, and the bold is what remains of what l want to still someday accomplish.
