Knitting wish list


Every year at Christmas, my husband requests a Wish List of gifts I'd like to receive. I am oh-so-happy to comply, as this insures that I never receive a toaster or some weird kitchen appliance I don't want. (I have received appliances before, but only ones I asked for -- my dh is no dummy!)

This year, my wish list contains a number of Knitting must-haves. I thought I'd share here:

I love books and knitting books are no exception. Two on my list are I Can't Believe I'm Lace Knitting by Kay Meadors, which I hope will help me overcome my frustration with lace knitting.

I enjoyed the first Mason Dixon Knitting book so much that I've asked for the second one, Mason Dixon Knitting Outside the Lines.

Knitting Little Luxuries: Beautiful Accessories to Knit, by Louisa Harding caught my eye because I like quick projects that are girly and fun.

I love knitting socks, and I love doing so on double points. So how about a set of these gorgeous Harmony DPs from Knitpicks?

And I'll need some more yarn for those socks, so I'd like this Meadows Sock Yarn Sampler, also from Knitpicks.

So there are some of my knitting wishes for the holidays -- what's on your Wish List?

I love this post! My list would include Clover cable holders, Clover locking stitch markers, needle gauges, measuring tape, tapestry needles, the Denise Organizer, and some of those clippy things that hold two sides together while you seam.

And maybe my own alpaca.

I just bought some Clover stitch markers the other day, Barbara. I'd love to have some cable needles as well.

I don't even know what Clover cable holders are. I have seen the U shaped ones, is this what they are? I would love an organizer, the clips, any books, knitting or otherwise and the time to do more knitting!

LisaB, you've found the best gift yet: more time to knit. I'm putting that on my list too. :-)
