  1. I’m so glad to see someone else who has a BIG bucket list! And I just spotted one on your list that I want to add to mine – own only hand-knitted socks!!! I’ve made myself 5 pair so far, and I love the way they feel on and I love how wonderful they look even just sitting in my drawer!!! Good Luck on your list.
