I REALLY want Jordana Paige's knitting satchel in blue. I know that most men need BIG hints, so I emailed DH a link to the bag, and wrote, I would really love this for Christmas" I also leave the business card for my LYS around his desk. This is my first year as a knitter, so we'll see how he does as far as gifts on special occasions. I certainly have left enough hints.
My dh gave up years ago trying to buy me something. Anymore he just hands me some cash and I pick out what I want. It would be nice to get a gift on occasion from here but I don't complain since he really doesn't pay attention to what I want.
