Christmas was great because I got a lot of neat thins!

-1 skein of Socks That Rock mediumweight in Purple Rain but it isn't here yet because of the snow that the BMFA people had. It's on its way now though.
-Organic Fair Trade Mint Dark Chocolate.
-Mason Dixon Knitting: Outside the Lines
-$30 towards a Nintendo DS

From my other side of my family I got:
$25 Target gift card
pink hoodie
1 skein of Regia Design Line Kaffe Fassett yarn (blue)
1 skein of Patons Stretch Socks (which is now becoming a pair of Breeze socks.
1 skein of bamboo yarn that is soft and blue/tan
pink hoodie
horse calendar
$25 barnes & noble gift card which is now Free Range Knitter and All Things Bright and Beautiful by James Herriot. I was going to buy It Itches but I couldn't find it.
From my other side of my family I got:
2 skeins of Schoeller + Stahl Fortissima Colori Socka Color in blue/teal color
1 skein of Plymouth Sockotta in light blue/purple color
red Vera Bradley wallet with movie coupons
$30 iTunes gift card

I need to charge my camera batteries and then I will have pics of the yarn. Also! I was saving up for a Polar White Nintendo DS and my dad said he would pay the rest of the money for it. So on Saturday we went to Target which was where I wanted to buy it because I like Target. All they had was one of the Guitar Hero Nintendo DS bundles which was not what I wanted. So I used my Target giftcard to buy Mario Kart DS instead. That is a really, really fun game. You should buy it if you don't have it already.
Then my sister had been to Kmart the previous week and had seen Polar White DS's there so we went there and they had empty boxes out instead of locking up the real boxes so we had to ask an employee to get one for us. She had a really bad attitude. She was like, "Oh, I don't know about that..." which I thought was REALLY irritating. You'd think she would be happy to sell a DS. *rolls eyes* We paid for it in cash which probably irritated her more but I actually had cash so whatever.
Then I opened it in the car which my sister took pics of. Right away I turned it on and set it up (put name, birthday, etc) but couldn't play it yet because it needed to be fully charged.
Then we went to Milwaukee to spend our B&N gift cards. We were walking through the food court when we saw our cousins which was really interesting because we don't see them places very much. Then we went to B&N and bought our books and were going to go home but my mom had to go to my aunt's house for something and I didn't get home until later and still had to wait 3 hours for the DS to charge. x.x
We went to blockbuster yesterday and found Brain Age 2 for only $12! It sells for $20 in the stores so my dad let me get it. :)

edit: OH! I finished my My So Called Scarf. It's as tall as me and it only took 1 skein of Malabrigo in Shocking Pink!

Something Purple...

I finished my Something Purple sweater tonight minus the button! Hooray! It took me almost the exact time that the Wicked sweater took plus one day. 5 months, 1 week, and 1 day. I'll have a picture whenever I have an available camera. The batteries are still dead and I haven't charged them yet.
