I will NOT be a lemming. Um, I think the paw print pattern qualifies as a smocked type of knitting. Twisted stitch, that is like mini cables. I'm pretty sure you've done that...I can't believe you haven't done some of these... drop stitch? Slip stitch? We need to expand your horizons....Btw, button holes are evil anyway, well at least button bands are.

You have quite the impressive knit list :) It's fun to take inventory your skills, isn't it?
