Christmas Knitting

This is just a tease.  I just want to announce that I did officially start working on my first Christmas present.  It could go to one of two people; I haven’t decided yet.  I’m liking it so far.

My family reads my blog so I can’t actually post anything about the Christmas presents I am making.  That means I won’t be able to write any FO posts or show my projects for months!  I’m going to have to queue them all up to post after Christmas.

Maybe I will add a page under Odds & Ends to at least track my progress.  That way I don’t feel like a slacker since I can’t share them yet!  I wonder if anyone in my family would try to guess what I was making and who it was for.  Maybe I could make code names for the gift recipients …


  1. As someone who has friends/family who read my blog I can completely relate to not being able to share the WIP/FO until after the Holidays. I imagine there will be a healthy dose of photo sharing of FO’s in January. I do love the idea of code names though!

  2. I’ve never before made something for my family that I didn’t have to measure them for, thus my family is used to knowing what they are getting long before I’m finished knitting it. I just started blogging this year, so this is the first time I have to deal with the holidays and holiday knitting. And this is the first year that I made a Christmas present as a surprise and blogging about it sure was difficult. I agree that throughout the knitting blog world, January will be full of pictures of smiling recipients of all our SWIP (Secret Works In Progress). But it so difficult to not show pictures as we go along …
