My two front teeth.

Instructions blatantly copied from Ally, who stole them from somebody else.

Step One
- Make a post (public, friends only, filtered...whatever you're comfortable with) to your Blog. The post should contain a list of 10 holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and internets-related ("I'd love a such-and-such icon that's made just for me!") to medium ("I wish for _____ on DVD!") to really big ("All I want for Christmas is a new car/computer/house/TV!") The important thing is, make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.

- If you wish for real life things (not fics or icons), make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it's your address or just your email address where a "holiday elf" could get in touch with you.

- Also, make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your Blog.

Step Two
- Surf around your friends list (or friendsfriends, or just random journals) to see who has posted their list. And now here's the important part:

- If you see a wish you can grant, and it's in your heart to do so, make someone's wish come true! Sometimes someone's trash is another's treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don't want or a gift certificate you won't use--or even know where you could get someone's dream purebred Basset Hound for free--do it.

- You needn't spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn't to put people out, it's to provide everyone a chance to be someone else's holiday fairy--to spread the joy. Gifts can be made anonymously or not--it's your call.

- There are no rules with this project, no guarantees, and no strings attached. Just...wish, and it might come true. Give, and you might receive. And you'll have the joy of knowing you made someone's holiday special.

My Ten in no particular order :
1 - The forgiveness of someone (you know who you are) that I have wronged in a most dreadful way.
2 - The serenity to accept the things I cannot change;
the courage to change the things I can;
and the wisdom to know the difference.
3 - An Umbrella Swift
4 - A set of dyes so I can get colourful with my first love (Alpaca).
5 - A Skeinwinder
6 - A new niddy-noddy
7 - Homespun Handknit
8 - High quality dancing shoes for ballroom dance
9 - A quality female Alpaca with which to start my (future) herd.
10 - A good sewing machine so I can become as obsessed with fabrics as Ally is.
You know what else would be cool? A set of KnitPicks options, cause everyone says they rock.
