"I want never gets"

Do you remember your parents telling you that when you were a child? I do and I also remember trying to figure out how people would know what I wanted if I didn't tell them. My retort was often "If you don't ask, you don't get". Shortly followed by a clip round the ear being told not to answer back! Fond memories!

Anyway, having posted my SP11 questionnaire to help my secret pal, I find myself mulling over all my answers. I mean do I really consider myself an advance beginner? Or am I heading towards an intermediate knitter? I'm not used to boasting about myself so I'm still erring towards my original answer.

Really it's Question 20 that has got my tiny little brain ticking: Any books, yarns, needles or patterns out there you are dying to get your hands on? What knitting magazine subscriptions do you have?

Ever since I answered that question I have been coming up with things I really really want, nay, need to make my life complete! Things like Cascade 220 in every single colour, some Koigo KPPPM, plenty of Lorna's Laces, and Posh Yarn in all available colourways. Of course putting all that in my answer would have made me look like a right greedy guts! And even posting it here makes me uncomfortable as I want my Secret Pal to know even before the off that I am guaranteed to love whatever they send me! I'm so excited to receive a parcel or two!

That said, I've never really compiled a knitting wish list before so having to do it has been addictive. Every time I've had a quiet moment (there have not been many with it being school holidays!) my brain starts filling up with all the knitterly goodies that I would treat myself to if I won the lottery.

Oh, a girl can dream, can't she?

oooh difficult call! - That's the one thing about swaps. But I reckon it's always worth having a wishlist about anyway!!! ;)
