Knitting Meme

I found this on the blogosphere and rather enjoyed it. I think I might post about it every year just to see where I am and what new skills (if any) I've picked up.
THE DEAL: You mark the things you have knit in bold, you italicize the things you intend to try, and everything else you just leave in regular font. Because I'm not one to leave well enough alone, I'll probably end up putting in little comments about techniques that went exceptionally well, and ones that didn't so much, vs. things I want to try.

You've covered a lot of this list in your short knitting career. I'm impressed.
I think knitting on a loom is the same as machine knitting - but I could be wrong! Maybe it's knitting with one of those plastic contraptions you see at Michael's/Joanne's etc.?
So... Yeah, I'm going to steal this meme from right under your nose and make it mine - mmmmwuhhahahahahahaaaa!
P.S. My word verication for this is, scrim - love it! What do you think it could mean? (A grim scrummage? Like a bad time in a game of Rugby)
