What techinques have you used?

When I first saw this, I thought - no, I'm not going to waste my time on this. But then I saw more of them, among them Yarndancer's and it was kind of fun, so I decided to give it a go.

The idea is that you mark with bold the things you have done, mark the ones you plan to do sometime in italics, and leave the rest in plain text. I have included crochet too, I've always done both. Some of the techniques I don't know at all, others I have looked up on Wikipedia or in dictionnaries, because I didn't know the English terms.

I love reading other people's versions of this list. It's so interesting to see the differences in techniques that we've all used!
