Christmas

I have started making lists, both of presents to give and what I want. As always, I got a late start. And as always, there is so much more I want to make than I have time for. This having to work at work thing really puts a crimp in my knitting style. And there are so many knitting things on my christmas list, I know I won't get them all. Shelley's friend Wendy's new book is on my christmas list, as well as the KnitPicks Harmony wood needles and some sock blockers. Yarn is always a welcome present too. The list of other pattern books I want is so long someone might think I was starting my own library. That new Luxury Yarn One Skein Wonders book looks like it will be awesome, I love the first two. I have made a number of gifts from their patterns. I would love to knit Riley a little sweater this winter, but only if he can get to wear he doesn't mind wearing clothes. I'd hate to make him one and have him tear it up. Oh, back to christmas, I want to make stockings for my house. This will be my first Christmas in my own house and I want to hang stockings that I knit from the mantle. So if anyone has or knows of any neat christmas stocking patterns (free ones unless they are just soooooo cool you can't stand it, I'm on a budget), let me know. :-)

I guess I should do some work. Gotta support the yarn habit.
