Christmas wishlist

The time has come for unashamed materialism. Here is my list for Santa. I have been relatively good this year.

(with apologies to Amazon, because I appear to have pinched quite a lot of links from their website).

Notebooks with cherry-print covers - I have been googling, but can't find anything. I have found a lot of cherry blossom print...not quite the same, though.

Wrap Style, by Pam Allen. I've become somewhat obsessed with the Shetland Triangle, but I can't allow myself to buy any more pattern books until I knit something out of the last two I bought.

Outliers, by Malcolm Gladwell. And Superfreakonomics, which is along the same lines....I loved the first Freakonomics.

Silicone bakeware. Especially a bundt "tin". This makes baking so, so easy - no greasing, no lining, no need for loose bottomed tins, easier to store....

Scrabble. I will probably end up buying this for myself though, because I want it for the AG&T weekend in the middle of December. My sixth formers have strongly suggested I trawl the local charity shops before buying a new one, so I think this will be my weekend task.

Some more Jade Sapphire 6-ply cashmere. Having knitted the Tudora in this, I now want something for myself.

Fancy make up brushes from MAC - especially a concealer brush.

The box set of Big Love season 3, which seems like it's never going to air over here, not even on channel 5. Though a cursory google suggests it's not out to buy yet.

An Oliver Bonas jewellery stand. And, in fact, quite a lot of their jewellery to put on it.

A new lava bulb for my lava lamp.

A red and white polka dot stair runner. Mr Z has suggested it and now I can't stop thinking about it.

This lovely, but expensive, garnet brooch. It is vintage, two crescent moons side by side. I have been looking at it for a while now, but it seems a little silly to shell out that much dosh for it, because I am not terribly good at remembering to put brooches on.

That's all I can think of for now. I think that is probably enough...
