Because I refuse to do this on Facebook...

I thought that I could just tell people what I wanted for Christmas when they asked. I really did. But then I realized that I never actually remember when people ask me. And I have online wishlists kicking around all over, too. So. An amalgamation, or something like that.

Inspiration, Instructions:
Craft (zine) any of issues 1-8 or a subscription. (6 and 8 are the ones that intrigue me the most at this point)
Knits, Cloth Paper Scissors, or PieceWork (from Interweave)
Last-Minute Knitted or Patchwork and Quilted Gifts (Joelle Hoverson)
Mason-Dixon Knitting (or M-D K Outside the Lines) (Kay Gardiner and Ann Shayne)

Ingredients, Parts, Materials:
Lilypad E-Sewing Kit (from the Maker SHED)
Actually, just about any of the Craft kits from the Maker SHED
Yarn (colours are good)
Spinning Fibre

Toys and Tools
Size 0 (2mm) or smaller circular needles in ≥40" lengths
Metolius Portable Power Grips (I found them at MEC)
A compass (preferably with decent sighting funtionality)
A couple of those awesome surgical brushes (the Lee Valley kind)
Extra Robertson bits (#2 and #3 are the most useful, in ≥2" lengths, so I can fit them in my screwdriver)
A good seam/stitch ripper (like this one)
Fabric Scissors (because I am now old enough to take care of them)
Board Games (Carcassone, or Settlers of Catan, or brain-type games)

Enjoyable Authors (fiction)
Guy Gavriel Kay (I have the Fionavar Tapestry, as well as Last Light of the Sun)
Terry Pratchett (Anything but the first 5 Discworld books)
Jack Whyte
Diana Gabaldon (I have the whole Outlander series to date)
Jasper Fforde

Places I like to shop
Lee Valley
Three Bags Full (the yarn store on Main Street)
(I have wishlists at MEC and (but not .ca))

I'm pretty sure that covers it. Now, what's on YOUR wishlist?
