What would you ask for as a present, yarn wise?
My 2 year anniversay with the boyfriend is coming up and I am getting some yarn, depending on what I ask for. So what would you ask for? I am a new knitter, but I recently made this hat: http://cache.lionbrand.com/patterns/60461.html

Hmm....I would ask for one of these options:

1. A fairly economical yarn, but enough for a sweater.

2. A hank or two of something luxurious and ridiculous that I wouldn't normally buy for myself: silk, alpaca, cashmere, something like that.

Lucky girl!

Yes, silk or silk blend would probably be the ideal yarn gift.

That's what I'd buy if I'd the money.

Oh! What about organic cotton? I heard that's fab too. And it's environmentally friendly! I'd ask for heaps of that for towels, bathcloths, soap wraps, scarves and more.
