Knitting Goals: Play that Meme!

What with Springtime and all that renewal stuff thoroughly underway, it's got me to thinking about my knitting.
All of it.

All those sad little UFOs nefariously tucked out of sight, all the designs-to-knit, all those bookmarks jammed into various copies of Vogue and IK...

And especially all those things I don't know, haven't tried. All those holes in my knitting knowledge and experience.

Being the list-making nutter that I am, the first thing that occurred to me was "check the interwebs!" I knew there was a meme out there.

So I made me a list of (some of the) things I've done, and (some of the) things I'd like to do.

(I've marked with bold the things I've done).

How about you? I must admit it feels good to see (certain sections!) all bold.
