3KCBWDAY6: Improving Your Skillset

For today's topic I have a meme I did in 2009.  Since then I've accomplished a few more things and there are still things I've yet to do.  I think my biggest goal is to knit a sweater that fits me.  I'm a loose knitter and I keep thinking if I knit the medium it'll work out.  I don't swatch, I don't do the math.  I just cast-on, go and end up with something too big.  Definitely something I need to work on.

Ah, well -- on with the meme.

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. My own comments in parenthesis.
