Hey, is he available for coaching?? I have a pretty great hubby already, but in the gift department he's the pits (and believe me, he knows it, this isn't something I am saying behind his back at all!) In fact, last year, he not only didn't get me a birthday gift (I've gotten used to that) He COMPLETELY forgot :( I was soooooo sad.
So, what do you say? Coaching?? Pretty please??
Maybe Amy could set up an email reminder service to send to the husbands (and wives for you you men out there) of KH'ers. Something like:
Dear Husband (or wife) of user at knittinghelp.com,
This email has been sent to remind you that your wife's birthday (christmas, easter, flag day, no holiday, etc) is in two weeks. Every wife should get a little something for her birthday, right? Here are a few ideas for gifts your wife will absolutely love.
1. Yarn. "but my wife already has so much yarn!" you might say. Trust us, there is no such thing as too much yarn. Your wife will always want more yarn even if it seems like there is no possible way she can knit the yarn she has in the next 40 years. Don't feel comfortable picking out yarn? The many helpful members of knittinghelp.com would be happy to pick out the yarn for you.
2. Yarn. Didn't you read number one? Buy yarn.
3. A large HDTV/computer monitor screen (so your wife can virtually surf online yarn stores).
4. Did I mention she might like yarn?

P.S. Do not wait utnil the last minute. You have two weeks. If you order something now, your wife will actually get it in time and be impressed you thought ahead.
