What's on YOUR Knit List?

Picked up this list from And She Knits Too!, and I thought it was great.

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. (With notes.)

I added notes because some things fell into the category of "I am interested, but no definite plans."
