Most people have something that they hope to receive for Christmas. Something they may or may not have mentioned to a potential gift giver, but would really like to get.

So, what are you hoping to get for Christmas?

For me, it's some nice yarn and the book Viking Patterns For Knitting.

That's about it for me. I don't need much. How about you?

I want a swift and ball winder.
And some Malabrigo or Manos del Uraguay... cloud9

any gift cards to yarn stores would be awesome. one of my lys' has a file for gift ideas and i left a note for my husband to get a swift that says "if you are reading this matt, you have not made one for me like you said you wanted to" :teehee:
a harmony set is on my list too!

oh, and Hugh Jackman to come sing holiday classics to me would be super duper!

That sounds nice!

I just want us to be able to get moved into the house we're working on... still so much to do but maybe..... a friend has "loaned" us his summer home but it just isn't the same... so PULEEEEESE, SANTA!

My mother in law died last year before Christmas and left me a beautiful diamond necklace that was her mom's but the chain is broke. I'd like to have the necklace part replaced with a suitable chain so that I can wear it. Right now it's sitting in our safe, useful to no one.

I want a sheep! :cool: No seriously, follow the link at the bottom of my sig (the one with the pic of the boy hugging a sheep) and see what I mean. We've opted not to do presents this year for Christmas (we are for Yule, but they are totally different presents - all hand made or supplies to make stuff) so I'll probably get more yarn, linen and pewter (to cast buttons) this year.

As far as attainable gifts, I'd like a weekend alone.

As far as unattainable gifts for this Christmas, no Student Loans!

I want... NOTHING! :teehee: We live in a tiny appartment and every Christmas, we have to throw stuff away and find a place for the new things we got as gifts. :doh: Christmas gifts are more trouble for us than anything, and it's very hard to convince our families that all we want is to be with them!

Of course if they want, they can give us a new, bigger appartment, but we're still waiting for that one. :teehee:

You should have told me! There were 2 of them at Target last week. My DD (who wants one as well) was with me, so I couldn't buy it! I figured I'd go back in the morning and get it. DUH! No more pink ones. I did get her a black one though.
I didn't realize you were soooooooooo young! :)
As for me, I can't really say there is anything I want for Christmas except yarn. No one is getting me yarn though...

A new digital camera to photograph my yarn and projects with clarity and no blur.
My set of KP Options. I just got the email to notify me they'd been shipped! *dances*
A new computer (but that'll never happen)

lol i am not... i am 37... but when i say things like i want a video game system that is in pink it makes me feel like a 12 year old! ;) I knew target had them on sale last week but i couldn't convince anybody who would buy me that kind of thing for christmas that they wanted my list...lol.

and it isn't generally the type of thing that i would buy for myself except maybe with gift money.

I am determined to prove the old saying "youth is wasted on the young" wrong. I want an Ipod Touch and a Wii. If there was such thing as a PINK Wii, I'd be all over that sucka!!

Oh.. and for the pseudo-grown-up in me, a VW New Beetle (but I'm so not holding my breath).:teehee:

:roflhard:

You had me going :?? for a second there!

Mason, I can't believe YOU started this thread...after the way you answered the "Getting to know you" thread! ;)

I don't have much stuff on my list this year. I would love a good supply of nice candles. The animals in my house don't exactly exude that warm homey smell.

I would love a different car -- we had a Durango until we traded it in for a non-gas guzzler. I can't stand the car we replaced it with.

But really, I would just love the gift of time. I spend so much time working on my classes that I just don't get to knit like I'd like.

Ok...what I want is to win the lottery! :teehee:

I would like 1) a new, bigger house so I can bring my family under one roof and be sure everyone is safe and secure, and 2) for each person on this list to receive at least 5 skeins of their very favorite yarn. So, if you're listening Santa, YARN FOR EVERYONE! :cheering: :hug:

Weddin ring resized/reset (my knuckles grew during this last pregnacy...yeah, my KUCKLES, not swollen, just hard boney knuckles won't let me wear my wedding ring. I'm tired of lugging three kids around and getting those looks when people see my ring finger naked!)
Lots of books and CDs that I doubt people will get- they aren't popular so they'd have to actually look for them

I'm 32 and I have an Xbox 360 (and my husband has one too), a Wii, a DS lite, PS2...and every Nintendo console ever made. Gaming is definitely not just for kids, and neither are pink handhelds, lol! My hubby and I play Halo 3 (and other games) online together via Xbox Live...he plays downstairs, and I play upstairs! It's awesome!

Back to the topic...for Christmas, I mostly want a jewelry box. A good one! :D

dream gift? all 3 boys to have their bedrooms cleaned and 1 day without bickering or fighting amongst them.

reality?
I pointed out a salad bowl set to my dh that goes with my platter (i love anchor brand stuff) as well as the other viking knitting patterns book and a gift card to joann's.

lol the cute boy wants to get me an xbox so we can play halo together. Not because I have much interest in playing halo but because I embarrass him fairly regularly in Scrabble and he wants the opportunity to do the same to me in a game that I know about as well as he knows scrabble...lol


for the record y'all... i am VERY comfortable in my level of love of all things girly... that doesn't mean it doesn't still embarrass me sometimes...lol

this is a hard question for me to answer... I haven't really received Xmas presents since I was a child. I don't remember receiving (or giving:teehee: ) presents as a grown up.... wierd, I know :shrug: But if someone asks me, I would love to get gift cards to yarn stores, knitting books, or just useful things... nice make up, toys for my kitties, litter for their boxes :mrgreen: a newer and in better condition car :rofl:
dreaming costs nothing :wink:

LOL, brendajos. I didn't know your exact age, but I knew you were an adult!
And I think your choice of a gift is very cool. My mother bought my son his first Super Nintendo (years ago). Guess who stayed up playing it? Me!!!! I think I was even playing Mario World in my dreams for a while! LOL Then there was Donkey Kong. Unfortunately, my kids never got into video games, so I've had to find other things to interest me.

"My parents" ordered me a set of KnitPicks Options..."they" are so sweet! Haha. I don't think they plan on getting me anything else, because we had an agreement that if I stayed home for my freshman year of college they would buy me a car, because I go here for free. So they've sort of committed to finding me a junker after I get my license.
And my boyfriend and I aren't spending more than $20 on each other, because we're going to a music festival in January that's going to cost us both a lot, so we decided to make that time together our Christmas gift, other than the things we make each other.

:grphug: We all wish that....for all the moms. :heart:

As for me, I got a trip to Mexico from mom, engaged to FH, and a massage from grandma for my birthday last month....so I'm not getting X-mas presents....but just to be greedy :teehee: options or harmony needles.

I did get a little birthday $, but I spent that on FH getting a wisdom tooth pulled, because it was so painful you could see his veins popping out of his head, and he couldn't eat or sleep. Plus, now he's a lot less grouchy, so $ well spent.

I would like some time to :knitting:. I got a little last nigh FH took a two hour nap (which he never does) so I got to knit, knit, knit!!!!

I want a BCD (bouyancy control device, for scuba diving), the dive shop has one in my size on clearance that is even better than the one I had been using, but I don't think I'll get it. For one thing, my mom has it written down on my list as "dive thing" and I can just see what would happen if she walked into the dive shop and said "my daughter wants a dive thing." (Although my instructor is almost always around, and he knew what I wanted). Secondly, even on clearance its still a couple hundred dollars, and my dad thinks that since I won't use it until at least June, obviously I don't need it for Christmas. (Its a terrible thing to think ahead and ask for something you'll need in six months)

I also want Lorna's Laces yarn and a long circular needle, size 6...
Yay! I'm getting these! Although after everything was ordered, I realised that I think I ordered a nickle plated needle and I'm allergic to nickel. Oi.

Congrat's Momwolf!!! My son in law is a Marine and we prayed for that last year, but he had to say in Iraq (it was his third time). So this year he, my daughter and 3 grandchildren are stationed over in Okinowa, I will miss them terribly, but they are further out of harms way, hopfully!
So, it's good he will be on USA soil!

I hear ya sista'!!!!!!!! Mine bit the dust yesterday..and it is a washer/dryer combined and fits in a nice space upstairs in the bathroom. The problem with it, is if one thing goes you really have to get rid of the whole thing. But we have had it almost 6 years and the people we bought the house from had, had it for 7 years, so it's lasted a long time!
Good luck to you!
