Machine knitting- for some reason I feel like this is a sell-out, no offense to those who machine knit, cause I might get bored one day and fall in love w/ it

Rug– Mason-Dixon rugs are on my to-knit list
Knitting on a loom– I tried this once, but couldn’t get the hang of it
Thrummed knitting
Knitting a gift– does it count if the gifts are ALWAYS late?
Knitting for pets

Hair accessories- made a headband once, not sure what other hair accessories I’d knit
Knitting in public- always!!
