A crappy meme for y'all

This is been going around for a while, but since the new socks involved me trying two (three?) new knitting techniques.--The second sock is 1) toe up using 1a) figure eight cast-on I found here and 2) I am trying the short row heel in hopes that the stripes stay pretty.-- I felt I should write down what I've done and what I plan to try. This seemed the best possible way to do that.

Directions: Bold for stuff you've done, italics for stuff you plan to do one day, and normal for stuff you're not planning on doing.
