Black List 2014 AKA UFO list

WOW I did it!! Promised myself that I would put them all away by the end of the weekend and I promised myself that I wouldn't put them away until I made a list!  Which I have done!  Almost everything fit into the 2 drawer file cabinet!  

 This is it! There's a bag of the three items which are up for trade on top and a large zipper bag outside but hey, they almost fit! AND HEY WOW isn't this much more managable then the entire bed covered in boxes and bags FULL of projects?  The prior photos and posts should give you an idea of what I have gone through this weekend.  One drawer has all the shawls and the other has the tops, sweaters and 2 pair of socks.  The rest,,, the more WIP items are all in the basket by my bed where my "work" and recreation current knitting normally has been residing.

Without further ado... I give you the Black List!  Black as they will disappear by the end of next year.  ALL OF THEM!  One way or another they will get out of here.  You knitwear guys here me!  Yeah, I'm talking to you!!! Blue - 2 drawer file cabinet, you hearing this!  You will be repurposed too! You will hold paper as you were designed to do.  

The "number" in bold is the first three items in the order which I will get them finished. YOUR OUTTA HERE!  Here me- you color work sweater! "PICK ME!",  "I wanna go next!", "NO, PICK ME!", "She wont pick you, she doesn't really even LIKE you!",  "Don't you know... she's gonna RIP YOU!" Hey stop that! No fighting among the natives, I love you all the same.  We will get through this next year, side by side.  Just chill for now.
