Let’s face it. Most knitting tools and materials are a foreign language to non-knitters. DPNs, what? This is why the KnitPicks WishList could possibly be the greatest thing on Earth.
For Christmas each year, my mom asks me what I have been wanting and usually I have a bunch of knitting tools I have been coveting. I really wanted to make gift giving easy on my parents this year and most of the things I wanted were a tad difficult to describe. I’m pretty sure if I told my father that I wanted a roll to keep my double pointed knitting sock project together, he would have given me a cardboard toilet paper roll. This is the man who suggested I eat a block of cheese and lunch meat when I begged for Lunchables in elementary school.
I keep a running wishlist at KnitPicks so I can document the knitting tools I dream of purchasing and yarns I want for upcoming projects (I can’t wait ’til you come out Stroll Tonal in Pacific!). So I shared this list with them this year and Santa got me some pretty rad gifts – things I think every knitter should own (click the titles for links to the interwebs):KnitPicks
And for all of my knitterly blogging needs, I am way more than crazy excited to have a new iPad stylus and the most fancy thing I’ve ever owned, a King Ranch iPad case from my guy. We went on a little personal tour of King Ranch last spring and had I had coveted something lovely and leather from their gifts shop. He’s a pretty great gift giver.
