Are you wondering what I may be interested in? What to get a gal who seems to have everything? Well, you are in luck, because I don't have here you go, dahlinks...

1. Swift (don't rightly care what kind, I just know that the ball winder without the swift doesn't make much sense) bought it for myself in October!
2. Orangina and One Skein Wonder Patterns from Glampyre
3. Opal Sock Yarn, there isn't a place where I live to get it!
4. Stitch Markers, Stitch Markers and more Stitch Markers (I have started a collection, I have)
5. Information on Spinning and Dying! Spinning info Courtesy of Mamma Snooze
6. Please make the time go faster until Rhinebeck (oh and remind me to keep the money that I have thus far saved, saved)
7. I would absolutely love all of the seasons of The Gilmore Girls on DVD (this is actually coveting the mother/daughter relationship I was robbed of)
8. Speaking of mother/daughter relationships, I am looking for an adoptable mom (please do remember I come with 5 ready made grandchildren) Thanks again to Mamma Snooze
9. I am looking for some sort of yarn that is a blend (not too much wool) for an aran sweater for my dad (not too expensive, do you know of any that are nice to knit with and will somehow hold its shape and my dad won't ruin?) Just looking for a name, but depending on price, you may see this revisited.
10. Gift Certificate to Knit Picks or Knit Pixie, or for my birthday! It's the big 3-0 this year...uggh
11. HTML for Dummies, gotta learn how to do this stuff. :)

Well I don't want to seem toooooo greedy so that would be it for now. I am open for suggestions and trades... let me know!

Edited to Note: Thank you Anne (Other Annie) for the great trade for OSW
