Birthday?
My b-day is coming up and I don't know what to get!! Obviously, I want knitting stuff, but I don't know what stuff to get!! Any suggestions? BTW, I already own: 1 set size 8 straight needles, 1 set size 15 straight needles, 2 tapestry needles, and some yarn.

I second the options needles, or another interchangeable set. In the long run they will save you soooooo much money, and you always have the size you need! And really, you can never have too much yarn
Happy Birthday!!!

my birthday is Monday!!!!

Wouldn't it be fun to get just one skein of something REALLY nice, but REALLY expensive? Perhaps some prism cashmere or Classic Elite Indulge (also cashmere)?

Or go with the options; everyone I know who has them *love* them!

I agree, you can never have too many needles! Several pairs of the common middle of the road size is good. And I have 3 different interchangeable sets. I love my Options and Denises equally!

BTW, my birthday is Tuesday the 15th... Let'shear it for May babies!!!
