Knitting - past, present, future

So....I tagged Wanda last week and she graciously meme'd (which I found very interesting) and then posted an 'inventory' of her own. I'm intrigued and decided to be tagged myself:

Bold for stuff you've done, italics for stuff you plan to do eventually and normal for stuff you don't intend to do.

As a knitter, I reserve the right to change my mind and cast-on something not planned at any time in the future!
