I have requested gift certificates from KnitPicks, etc from my kids, of whom have no 'knitting clue' but the answer I get is...I want you to be surprised by what I give you, which is very fine
I have my sweet husband that knows exactly what I want! Of course, he is very observant and I do write things in a notebook by the computer as I see them & where I see things for the best price bc I can remember NOTHING! And he's sneaked a few peeks at that and ordered for me before I've had a chance and when we are out shopping and I say "Oh, I love that" to this and that, he remembers and will go back and get things that we've seen.
As a matter of fact, he just came in with my yummy Karaoke yarn!!!! But I ordered it and had it shipped to his place of business, he just brought it to me bc it just came in!! (He's so sweet!) So, after I finish this Dulaan scarf, hat, wrist warmers & possible socks I can do a yummy, beautiful clapotis with this delicious Karaoke yarn....had to share...it's beeeautiful
