It's the Most Secretive Time of the Year

It's that time of the year again... As of Wednesday, Mom pulled out her Christmas music, which is completely insane. But that's Mom. If you ask me, Christmas music should be banned until after Thanksgiving.

As a knitter, however, I have to start thinking about Christmas in October at the latest. In fact, I've been known to start my Christmas knitting in January. Or August. This year, however, I haven't been quite so ambitious -- which could have something to do with the fact that, until a week or so ago, it was still in the 80s. It was just too freakin' hot to think about Christmas knitting. But now that it's cooled off a bit, it's time to crank that Christmas knitting into high gear. I started mine last week -- and it's completely consumed me, to that point that I have a nearly-finished sweater sitting on the couch, just waiting for a neck band. But I've been so focused on my first Christmas gift that I've completely forgotten about the sweater.

The problem, however, is that I want to share pictures of this beautiful Christmas gift that I'm working on. It really is gorgeous. Sometimes, I just sit there and squeeze it -- just because I love it so. But how does one show off pictures of a gift whose recipient is sure to see the picture (thereby spoiling all the fun) the next time he/she visits my blog?

Thus, Christmas is a difficult time for a knitblogger. There's so much to show off -- but it has to be done carefully, so as not to ruin any surprises. But I'm determined to try anyway. Pictures to come...

You could use a secret code word as the link! Or send a private link to your readers. Set up a rogue flickr account. That would be the funniest.

I agree...I'm working on only one project right now and it is a Christmas gift, so I can't blog about it or show it off. Drives me crazy!

PS - I've been totally behind in my blog reading and just finally caught up on yours, so while I didn't comment on the old posts, I did read them all. The blankets all looked great!
