Finished Knitted Candy Cane Scarf & My Christmas Wishlist - Blogmas Day 4

Hello Friends,

I hope you are doing well. I finished knitting the candy cane scarf this week. The pattern is found on Ravelry by Kristen Retigg. I enjoyed this pattern because it was simple, repetitive, and I could relax and knit it while watching TV. It is also a fun festive scarf for this time of the year. You can find the pattern on Ravelry here. I used size 9 US 5.50 mm straight needles and Red Heart Supersaver yarn in red and white to complete the project.

I am still reading Better Than Before by Gretchen Rubin and learning a lot about habits.  Next up is The Testaments by Margaret Atwood. I am really looking forward to reading this book. I love watching The Handmaid's Tale it is such an amazing show, so I am also interested in reading  Margaret Atwood's version of how the story would unfold.

My Christmas Wishlist

I wrote a short list of some of the things I would like this year. I had a couple of books and a few other things but I think there is always more to want and ask for when we start thinking of a list and looking online. Of course Christmas is about giving and I really enjoy giving others gifts at this time of the year. I love to see their reactions to gifts I am excited to give them it is so much fun. So below are 8 gifts I would like to receive for Christmas this year.

1. Happy Planner classic size. All year I love to sit down on a Sunday and plan for the week ahead. It helps me to plan and be more organized to achieve my goals and I love using the stickers and washi tape to design fun layouts. I really like this planner that says "its your year to shine" in the vertical layout.

2.  Everything is F*cked: A Book About Hope by Mark Manson. I see this book at Indigo and I think it would be an interesting read.

3. Necklace from Gigimey with the lotus flower engraving.
I bought one of these beautiful necklaces but in silver color for my mom years ago and she loves it. I would love one as well. Gigimey is a jewelry store on Etsy and they sell many necklaces and bracelets and also do engravings and customization. I  really like their delicate and simple necklaces.

5. Sims University expansion pack.
I love playing sims 4 and the University expansion pack came out last month. It is such a fun game and I really enjoyed the University expansion pack from Sims 2 so I think this one would be fun too.

6. 750 Knitting stitches: The Ultimate Knit Stitch Bible by Erika Pavilion books. I love learning new stitches and had done a new stitch each week on my blog for awhile it was fun to learn new stitches there are so many but I didn't know there were 750 + stitches to learn. This book would be fun to use to learn a new stitch or two each week next year.

I love recieving tea for Christmas and love DAVIDs TEA it is so good and once and awhile I treat myself to getting some but mostly receive them as gifts. What is better than heating up some tea for the afternoon and enjoying a cup while reading or knitting?
