What ya need to do, Femmy, is have that sonski of your start droppin hints! Print up a list of online & local yarn resources for gift certificates, and/or knitting books, etc., that you want, and PAY him if you have to to drop hints EVERYWHERE!

Or, include them in gift giving conversations in some, um.... ...manner ......doesn't hurt!
Joking aside, write a very specific and very long list of things that you like and where they can be found, online....where, in LYS...where in the store....BE VERY SPECIFIC!!

Then, show your listed boobs to your Husband/Boyfriend. He's sure to remember the list now that it's in a proper context! It's much more memorable than a post-it note, too.
What a great idea, Rebecca! I never knew you had such modern ideas. I polled a friend about your idea:

domiKNITrix. says:
so, say tenley had a birthday/christmas wish list that she wanted you to remember
domiKNITrix. says:
if she wrote it on her boobs, and showed 'em to you, would you remember the list?
Catalyst says:
probably

Looks like we have a winner!

well my list wouldn't fit on mine so that wouldn't work.. I could barely get YARN wrote out..


anyways yeppers my mom does all the time she surprises me with boxes of yarn LOL or when I go in she says look what I found not sure why I had it but here you take it with you I won't use it... LOL only thing is when she gets the things I can't normally get I hate to use them instead I just look at them and pet them... :rollseyes:

I'd be afraid what dh would think I meant so he doesn't get me yarn he says go get ya some though LOL
