Yay! I knew for Christmas I was getting some Lorna's Laces (Baltic is the colorway - I picked it out). The theory was, two skeins and a needle for Christmas, the other three skeins for my birthday (Feb). My grandma decided to just give it all to me at once!!! So I have five wonderful skeins of Lorna's Laces AND a new Addi Turbo needle (#6US circ, 47 inches)! The Addi is amazing... It had a rough spot on the tip when I started with it, which I don't know what it was but it's gone now, I guess it rubbed off while I knitted. Anyway, all of my other circs are Boyes, and the difference is shocking. I've been knitting on 2 circs with my #6 Boye because I'm just doing a headband and I haven't been able to figure out magic loop, I like 2 circs just fine anyway.
The only (knitting) item that I got that I don't like is from my other grandma. She found some acrylic homespun look yarn (its buried in other gifts at the moment so IDK what exactly it is) on clearance at Wal Mart. Now, no offense to those of you who like that kind of thing, but I don't. Plus, its pastel colors, I think there was even a couple skeins of pink (I don't like pink). I appreciate the thought - she knows I like to knit and wanted to get me some yarn, and she found it on clearance so she could get a lot for less money, but now I find myself with a whole box of yarn I don't want and can't take back - I'd really rather have the money. But, I guess I'll find something to do with it.
Merry Christmas, everybody!
