What Do You Hope To Get For Christmas?
Most people have something that they hope to receive for Christmas. Something they may or may not have mentioned to a potential gift giver, but would really like to get.

So, what are you hoping to get for Christmas?

For me, it's some nice yarn and the book Viking Patterns For Knitting.

That's about it for me. I don't need much. How about you?

What do you mean guys don't knit?

Perfection is overrated. Knitting is meant to relieve stress, not cause it. Relax and enjoy it.

any gift cards to yarn stores would be awesome. one of my lys' has a file for gift ideas and i left a note for my husband to get a swift that says "if you are reading this matt, you have not made one for me like you said you wanted to"
a harmony set is on my list too!

oh, and Hugh Jackman to come sing holiday classics to me would be super duper!

My mother in law died last year before Christmas and left me a beautiful diamond necklace that was her mom's but the chain is broke. I'd like to have the necklace part replaced with a suitable chain so that I can wear it. Right now it's sitting in our safe, useful to no one.

I want a sheep! No seriously, follow the link at the bottom of my sig (the one with the pic of the boy hugging a sheep) and see what I mean. We've opted not to do presents this year for Christmas (we are for Yule, but they are totally different presents - all hand made or supplies to make stuff) so I'll probably get more yarn, linen and pewter (to cast buttons) this year.

As far as attainable gifts, I'd like a weekend alone.

As far as unattainable gifts for this Christmas, no Student Loans!

I want... NOTHING! We live in a tiny appartment and every Christmas, we have to throw stuff away and find a place for the new things we got as gifts. Christmas gifts are more trouble for us than anything, and it's very hard to convince our families that all we want is to be with them!

Of course if they want, they can give us a new, bigger appartment, but we're still waiting for that one.

You should have told me! There were 2 of them at Target last week. My DD (who wants one as well) was with me, so I couldn't buy it! I figured I'd go back in the morning and get it. DUH! No more pink ones. I did get her a black one though.
I didn't realize you were soooooooooo young!
As for me, I can't really say there is anything I want for Christmas except yarn. No one is getting me yarn though...
