This is one year I can’t complain about what was in my Christmas stocking!!!! No ma’am!!!! I can’t!!!!! No lump of coal for me!!!!
I must have been a very good girl this year because my stocking was overflowing with knit and non-knitterly related gifts. More than I ever imagined. 😯 😯 😯
From my cousin, I received:
- Barbara Walker’s Treasury of Knitting Patterns Bk 1 & 2 plus Bk 3 which is the Charted Knitting Designs book. I told you I must have been good cause those books are not exactly on the less costly side. 😳
From my uncle of all unlikely places, I received:
- 60 More Quick Knits
It’s funny, since he didn’t exactly know what he was getting. He said he thought — “it’s a knitting book, how wrong could I get?” LOLOL!!! What’s great is that I like this one more than I like the first book in this series. I can see myself making all the projects in this book; and I’m especially drawn to the colour-work patterns. I just know this book will come in handy once I start this technique. 🙂
I also got myself:
- The Opinionated Knitter
- Elizabeth Zimmerman’s Knitter’s Almanac
- The Big Book of Knitted Monsters (aren’t these adorable 😀 ). My goal is to make a monster for my cousin’s baby due in April 2012.
I also received from a friendship made on Ravelry.com, these skeins of yarn from Asha. The package was a wonderful surprise and I can’t wait to knit these up into beautiful F.Os.
I hope your Christmas was just as great or better!!!!! 🙂
