I STILL have the best husband in the world!!
We have just gotten back from vacation & as everyone knows, Lonnie's gift to me was to take me shopping for knitting :D and we had FUN !! And I SCORED. I couldn't find the knitting gift Christmas list, so I include everything here: 2 365 Pattern calendars and a darling knitting kit from my daughter with book for knitting animal fashion with too cute puppie needles!
Then we left for vacation & hit the 2 stores in St. Simons & went to 2 stores in Jax and I was done! ....LOL, didn't take me long to find all that was on my list except for a pattern that I will now have to biggie, trust me !
Okay, the goodies are:
Yummilicious Cherry Tree Hill sock yarn
Oh so nice Wild Foote sock yarn
Too cute Wildflower yarn that I will use for socks
Wild Opal sock yarn
Oh Baby, 5 Bulky Lamb's Pride in periwinkle & 1 worsted in periwinkle
Oh Baby, Baby...10 worsted Lamb's Pride in blue flannel for the #15 Lace shawl in Vogue (winter or fall) (all superwash..YAY!!)
2 lovely patterns: Fibertrends "FlowerBasket Shawl" and Theresa Gaffey "Small Entrelac Bag"
Donna Kooler's "Encyclopedia of Knitting" (this book ROCKS!)
Some accessories
Okay, then right after we got home...he surprised me with the new "Bewitched DVD with a DVD of some of the old TV shows! And 5 jars of Bath & Body Works Skin Repair Body Butter (my fave) and a tube of Whatever You Shea hand lotion!!
OMGOODNESS...I HAVE THE BEST HUSBAND IN THE WORLD and the sweetest daughter for thinking of Mom's knitting
Of course, I took some photos! All can be seen here under 2005 Christmas goodies. But I have to show a few now :D

FYI...I got Lonnie oodles & oodles of things that he wanted, too..but, it's not nearly as exciting as knitting stuff...LOL..Well, it is to him, which makes it exciting to me...but doubt that ya'll would enjoy..LOL!
