Santa gets it right

I was totally surprised on Christmas Day, to receive this gift from Doug:

It is a KnitPro Karbonz Interchangeable Needle Set. Isn’t it pretty? It opens up to reveal a set of 8 interchangeable needle tips, sized from 3.5mm to 8mm, plus cables and connectors.

Here is a close-up of the needle tips:

I must say this gift completely floored me. How did he know what to buy? (“I did some research”, he says.)

Then, I opened another package, which contained a pile of yarn. Specifically, Road to China Light by The Fibre Company in the shade Rhodolite. This yarn is 65% alpaca, 15% silk, 10% camel, and 10% cashmere. I have always wanted to try it, but never caved in and bought it.

I spent all day yesterday planning what I might knit with it.

I asked Doug what we should call this post. I suggested “How do you know that your husband ‘gets you’?” Doug suggested “How do you know that you’ve trained your husband properly?”

I’ll be back with my end-of-year post soon. Happy knitting!
