Crafting To Do List

This is a list of techniques, materials, or project types that I want to do/work with/make. It primarily includes items for knitting and spinning, but is in the process of being expanded to other types of crafts as well (currently, sewing). I found the original of the list on a fellow Raveler's profile and have since heavily modified it.
