What'd you get for Christmas??
A while ago someone asked what was on people's knitting Christmas wish lists. Now it's time to see who lucked out and how. My DH gave me KP Options, plus the 40 "" cable, the Knitting Stitch Bible, the Knitters Book of Finishing Techniques, and 2 skeins each of ArtYarns Ultramerino yarn. Unfortunately, my DS and DDIL gave me the same 2 books. Needless to say, I am one happy camper-make that one happy knitter!
Hope you all had a very merry Christmas too.

I got The Knitters Bible by Claire Crompton, the KnitPicks Options Set, a new sewing machine, and Easy Afghans for Knitters. I got 5 balls of a blue bulky yarn, 3 1 lb. skeins of merino, and that does it for knitting stuff.
Really Like the Options.

I didn't get a lot of knitting stuff...a nice knitting tote that will be perfect for sitting next to the chair with bigger projects...some fun fur and a knifty knitter. Yeah I will probably never use those two but I do love the thought considering that i didn't put anything knitting on my list this year!

I got Options!!! I am so excited! And I got some DPNs. So now I have no excuse to try knitting my first pair of socks. I'm scared and excited about that all at once. Now I just need some sock yarn.

I didn't get anything knitting related ... guess my DH thinks I have enough already. However, I did get a nice diamond bracelet.
