shhhh ... it's a secret


It's that time of year again! Yep, Christmas knitting time ... so let the secrets begin.

Last year I knit a Gryffindor scarf for my brother, and after glancing at a single yarn photo he told me that he could guess from the colours exactly what it would be. It was obvious, he told me. How could I possibly think he wouldn't guess?

This year I'm knitting for the same brother. Today's photo is a hint for him. But here's one more hint: things are not always as they seem!

That's all that I'm going to say on this matter, and that's the last photo you'll see until after Christmas day. He reads this blog ... although he admits to just skimming the really "knitty" posts. Now don't anyone ruin the surprise, please! What about you? Have you started your Christmas knitting?

In Brazil we do not use gave knitting gifts in Christmas, but I will knit at least one for a friend.
The problem is here is too hot and we have to start now to knit the gifts! But is a very good time to start! I hope your brother enjoy your gift!

That is too funny! I have some lurkers in my family as well, so always have to be careful what I post of gifts! Love your trick sneak peek though!

I have some socks done, not making many presents this year. But last year I said that and was casting on a couple of days before Christmas after all.

Are you surprised?

No Xmas knitting again this year.
How awesome your brother reads your blog. I don't mine even reads mine.

Lurker? I'm an avid fan of this blog. And I have a guess too but... that might spoil the wonderful surprise at Christmas. My Gryffindor scarf is one of my most prized possessions so I'm excited to add to my knitted collection, whatever it might be.

Hahaha. It's hard doing secret knitting! I have been working on holiday projects since March, so I'm actually taking a break from it now.
