Buying yarn for knitters is also hard.
It's like buying lingerie for a friend. Which, in fact, I did receive this year. My lovely roommate introduced me to the world of lace panties this Christmas.
So for several Christmases, I have received no yarn. Although it's something I will definitely love and use, most of my family has shied away from that gift.
My grandmother gave me a lovely wrapped box. When I unwrapped it, the box says "Holiday Bless This Home Tray." I thought I had a new serving tray for the apartment that I'm going to get next July. But when I opened it, I was amazed to see seven gorgeous balls of Willow yarns, which I have not used before.
Any suggestions? What are the best gifts you gave this year? Do you give your knitting friends yarn or yarn related goodies?
