Digging up old entries

All right, I went back through my old blog posts to see if I got the spam comment a bunch or other Ravelers got (I did not) and found this knitting survey from September 2007.

I have deleted everything on the list that I said then I had already done. So now I am looking at the list to see how many things I wanted to do that I have done or if I have changed my opinion on them. My comments today are in parenthesis:


I want to do it

Very Little/No interest

I don't know what it is so I can't comment

It's interesting to see how those lists change. This is a good use for memes that I hadn't thought of before...I wonder what my comparison would look like?
