What'd you get for Christmas?

A while ago someone asked what was on people’s knitting Christmas wish lists. Now it’s time to see who lucked out and how. My DH gave me KP Options, plus the 40 “” cable, the Knitting Stitch Bible, the Knitters Book of Finishing Techniques, and 2 skeins each of ArtYarns Ultramerino yarn. Unfortunately, my DS and DDIL gave me the same 2 books. Needless to say, I am one happy camper-make that one happy knitter!
Hope you all had a very merry Christmas too.

I got The Knitters Bible by Claire Crompton, the KnitPicks Options Set, a new sewing machine, and Easy Afghans for Knitters. I got 5 balls of a blue bulky yarn, 3 1 lb. skeins of merino, and that does it for knitting stuff.
Really Like the Options.

I didn’t get a lot of knitting stuff…a nice knitting tote that will be perfect for sitting next to the chair with bigger projects…some :hair: [size=2][color=gray]fun fur and a knifty knitter[/color]. [/size] Yeah I will probably never use those two but I do love the thought considering that i didn’t put anything knitting on my list this year! :teehee:

I got Options!!! :cheering: :cheering: :cheering: I am so excited! And I got some DPNs. So now I have no excuse to try knitting my first pair of socks. I’m scared and excited about that all at once. Now I just need some sock yarn.

I got all kinds of knitting goodies–

-KP Options with extra sz 13 tips
-Noro and Cascade yarn

  • Nicky Epstein’s Knitted Flowers book
  • Vogue Knitting shawls book
  • Modular Knitting book
  • Victorian lace today book

My birthday is in a week- now I just need laceweight yarn :wink:

I got some very interesting gifts from my dh: DomiKNITrix and sexy knits for the bedroom, he said now I don’t have to knit anymore scarves! :roflhard: My mom gave me the knitting pattern a day calendar and yarn harlot-very funny book for all you knitters! :hug: OOOOOOOOOOOO and my dh got me a $200 gift certificate to my lys. I LOVE that man! :heart: :heart: :heart:

Wah :pout:
My knitting present got thrown out by accident. We were keeping everything in the garage away from the kiddies, and it seems when my husband threw out a bunch of boxes last week, my KP order went out with it!
He reordered it yesterday for me, but now the sock kit is on backorder. I was also supposed to be getting scissors and Knit Fix. Who knows when my goodies will finally get here!
Plus, I ordered some 16" Addi’s from ebay, and havent received them and cant get aresponse from the seller. Those were supposed to go in my stocking. :verysad:

I got Options! :happydance: :cheering:

Plus the Vogue Knitting Ultimate Guide, Vogue Stitchinoary Vol 1, and Epstein’s Knitting Over the Edge. (I may actually return this one and get something else. Brother called me from B&N while I was in another part of the mall and I couldn’t think of anything else off the top of my head. I’m not wild about the stitches I saw while flipping through.)

JMP, that’s the saddest thing I’ve ever heard! :pout:

I got a set of Denise interchangeables, two Nancy Epstein books! Knitting on and over the edge!!!

I got some gorgeous wool and a felted bag pattern. i also got the coolest thing…

Knitting needles with tips that light up so that I can knit in the dark! will be perfect for camping!!! hahah. !!!

I also got a yarn cutter, a set of crochet hooks, and two knitting magazines!!!

My mom is a wonderful seemstress and she gave me the fabric and the pattern for a great project tote and an IOU for making it for me. she just didn’t have time to get it done before yesterday!!!
YAY!!

:cheering: :cheering:

My honey gave me the Reader’s Digest Knitter’s Handbook, Chick Knits book which I really like although some of the stuff is really basic it has some very nice patterns and I like the clear explanations of some of the techniques. Both books are FAB :woot: :woot: I also received hand made stitch markers :woot: :woot: and oh gosh I can never remember the name of this patter :doh: :hair: It’s the headband in the latest issue of Knitty from my DIL and I love both gifts :heart: :heart:. Thats it for knitting. I did kind of break my yarn free diet. I ordered the sock kit that KP was offering for the Holidays for a friend for Christmas and while I was there I ordered some Andean Silk for myself because I’ve been really good and I really wanted to get it to make something for myself, which I’ve yet to do and my DH is always telling me I should make something just for me. So the yarn was kind of a Christmas gift to myself. Do you think that counts as breaking my “diet”? I hope not. :teehee:

The only knitting item I received was a gift card to AC Moore. :shrug:

I got mostly computer games and gift cards and money.

I got a spinning wheel a couple weeks ago, so that was my main Christmas present.

My DH got me a gift certicate to one of my LYS and The Knitter’s Bible from Claire Crompton.

My Momma got me a miniture spinning wheel made for a dollhouse so I wouldn’t forget what my main present was :teehee: She also got me the Knitting Day by Day calendar, and the grape Jordana Paige Knitting Satchel :happydance:

My brother had me in our grab bag and got me GC for Knit Picks and the same LYS that my DH got me a card for :happydance:

My family knows better to get me yarn as I’m a little picky :wink:

Very happy knitty Christmas for me! :cheering:

From my son and dil I got knitting yarn (see pic of felted bag at Whatcha knittin’) a beautiful saute pan, a bunch of kitchen odds and ends I ask for, fuzzy slippers, a cute little coin purse, these wonderful mixing bowls that have a handle, pour spout and rubber bottom so they grip the counter (yeah, I am a big cooking nut)

From my grandson, I got a set of three candles. He always buys me candles every year. He is required to purchase gifts for his grandparents with his allowance so I get candles and Jack gets a package of mechanical pencils because he does puzzles.

My dd and sil got me a beautiful set of crystal candle holders for my dining room table, a set of framed photos of their family, a yummy big cinnamon and apple slice candle.

As I’ve said before, Jack an I take our Christmas budget for each other and put it into savings for our yearly trip to Vegas. That way we can go longer and fly first class.

It was a nice Christmas, but I am glad it is over. I need to get focused on losing weight!
