Do you have a xmas/knitting wishlist?
Every year for xmas, I have to print up a wish list for my husband. And of course I link him to the websites and the exact items I would like. This has been successful so far. This year, my list will have a ball winder and swift along with some books and gift card or 2. I was wondering if there are other of you who do this?

I can hint all day long, but if I want something specific, he will tell me to go buy it. If it's too complicated, forget it. One time I wanted some perfume at Macy's. He couldn't find the department and was downstairs instead of up at the men's cologne. He finally, found it after I told him it was upstairs, the next day.

LOL Oh this sounds like my DH. For my birthday I wanted some yarn harlot books,he got me to the chapters book site and told me to order what I wanted.I've never ordered online before so I whined at him that he couldn't even get something for me online so he did.

I'm going back & forth on whether to ask my family to send knitting supplies from the mainland or ask them to contribute to my missions trip fund. Usually my family is pretty good about finding what I ask for. My employers are wonderful about listening to my comments about what I am searching for or interested in & they give some very thoughtful gifts related to what I have mentioned. One year they gave me a gc to a craft store, which I used to buy supplies for kids projects & knitting. Last year for National Nanny Appreciation week they gave me another gc and I spent it all on knitting supplies.

DH and I stopped buying separate gifts for each other years ago. It's just too hard so we try to find something we want together. Nothing romantic mind you, more like fireplace tools, but there you go. My daughters will look at my Amazon list for ideas and they all know I knit so sometimes they find something knitty. Usually books though that I have on my list which is I don't mind at all..it's why they are there.

Jan-do you get anything from each other for under the tree to open Christmas morning? There are just the two of us at home and I think I'd feel neglected if there wasn't a pressie just for me....but in saying that most of the pressies I get now I bought and dh just wrapped.

I've got $300+ worth of things I want from KnitPicks and a good hunk of this is books and needles. Along with knitting I also spin (ROFL) and did ask for an Ashford Joy ST. I scrapbook and would like some new punches and templates and what not stuff so that gives hubby so ideas.

Last year (it was a rough year) I got $100 gift card to Hobby Lobby from my parents. I had too much fun with that gift.

Our family makes lists. It's the surest way to get each other things we want.

I'll be asking for a ball winder and swift for sure. In fact, I suspect my son will get me these items because he's tired of being my swift.

Other than that, if I get money, I will probably use it to pay some bills. Drats...the practical side of me.

I have already told my hubby that whatever he buys is fine.. but if he really wants to get some ideas, he could visit my LYS - they know me pretty well. :P Also, his gifts are usually motivated by something he wants me to do: I got a Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer (Professional) for Christmas one year because he wanted me to bake for him more. One year I got a sewing machine because he wanted me to sew and sell the items I made (still don't know how to sew properly). But last year, he bought me an iPod - so who knows? Alot of times, he is more comfortable buying me electronics. Yarn just mystifies and confuses him.

But in answer to your question: yes I have a secret wishlist. I'd love for my hubby to pay for private knitting lessons and sewing lessons so that I can advance in both!
