Come on people I need more questions!
My husband is awesome. He got me exactly what I wanted me for my birthday.
I am on a lace weight kick. This is a lovely wool silk blend from Knit Picks called Gloss Lace in the Aegean color. Just look at it shimmer! I am planning on making it into a lacy scarf.
I got three skeins of this amazing alpaca lace weight also from Knit Picks. It is the stream color. I love how amazingly soft this is. I think that I am going to keep it to pet for awhile. Eventually I want to make a shawl out of it, but have not found the perfect pattern for it (suggestions are welcome, just remember I am still new to lace). Why a shawl? I don't know. I have been seeing other knitters make them and they look like they are fun to do.
My really great husband also got me a chart keeper so that I am a lot less likely to get lost when I am knitting a complex pattern. I love that this has snaps which will help keep little hands from moving my markers and the magnets make it easier to quickly put it away. Isn't my husband great? I have no idea how he knew exactly what to get me.
