Knitting gifts ROCK.
Merry Christmas, knitters! Just wondering if anyone got any cool knitting gifts today. My husband did GOOD. He got me a book on intarsia, 4 skeins of Lion Brand (okay not the best yarn, but he got really fun colors - FORGIVEN), a new pair of scissors, and a subscription to Knitting Simple.

Anyone else get knitting goodies?

That sounds wonderful! I didn't get any knitting gifts this year, but I still had a wonderful day!

Happy holidays to all!

Awesome! I didn't get any knitting related gifts but I had a great holiday anyway and my wonderful bf got me a brand new sewing machine.

My awesome mom sent me a big book on different stitches and how to create patterns, a pattern book full of fun, pretty sweaters and such, and enough (beautiful) yarn to make one of the sweaters for myself. Yay!!

Mom's a knitter too, so she had a pretty good idea of what I would like.

Merry Christmas!!

Hello there - Hope everyone is enjoying the break.

I recieved my first knitting gift this christmas (a knitting ninja)!

I am looking forward to starting, although the kit's instructions aren't great this website has some videos to get me going. Thank you!

Have fun

From one of my crafty friends, I got a wooden knitting doll (very neat!), as well as the book Vintage Knitwear for Modern Knitters. The hubster's grandmother got me a book on knitting hats and scarves, and his mom got me some notions.

I also knit my girl an orange and white Texas Longhorns hat using the Cowabungar beanie pattern (http://www.islandofmisfitpatterns.co.../07/cowabunga/) thinking she'd like a hat that was different from anything store bought. Nope. She wants a regular striped beanie with "Texas" embroidered in the brim. Go fig.
