don’t ask, it’s secret

lambs pride bulky

I love Lamb’s Pride (bulky, in this case, but I love the worsted, too). I remember when I first started knitting, there was always TONS of it around the yarn stores. It’s still there, of course, but so many other yarns jump out at me lately. Plied, sport-weight yarns, for example. But there’s always a place in my stash for this great woolly, mohairy, bulky yarn.

I’m using the stuff above for some **** for ** ****** for *********.

It’s secret Christmas knitting time, so sorry for the *’s.

Here’s another snap of a secret project. It might be clear what it is, but I will offer no details, other than that it is a fun, fun, fun and addicting knit.

secret knitting

The past few years, I haven’t knit many Christmas projects, but this year I’m feeling it. Are you knitting gifts? Who gets ‘em? How do you decide on a pattern for gift knitting? Just curious!

I’m popping in to say hi, but also to give you a heads up. Watch this space over the next few days for a big announcement! Hint: I am feeling the Christmas spirit big time and want to pass it along! (you will benefit even if you don’t celebrate Christmas – I promise!).

  1. I just pulled out some good ol’ Lamb’s Pride today and thought the same thing! Where has all that stuff gone to? ;)

    I’m excited to see what gifts you’re knitting. I’m pretty much on an all gift knitting all the time kick right now. I plan on making lots of mittens (quick and easy) including your End of May Mittens!

  2. I love those colors! Can’t wait to see what they turn into.

    I feel like I’ve been knitting for Christmas for months and months! Everyone in my family is getting something, the boyfriend, my friends. Whew! I can’t wait until the season is over so I can get down to some serious selfish knitting!

  3. I always knit gifts for my sisters, bro-in-law, nephew & niece because they all like getting them and say so. This year I stupidly asked in advance for color choices, in general they are a multihued bunch but this year I am making a black hat, a gray cowl and a natural shades alpaca hat so far. I need colors!!!! Good thing I have the Red Scarf project knitting going to liven things up.

  4. Ooh…I’m a big Lamb’s Pride fan too. Can’t wait to see what you’re making.

    And, is that some sort of mitered square blanket in the second photo?

    I don’t have any knitting projects on my “to make” gift list this year (although I might be making a knitted thong for my sister who jokingly requested knit underwear from me).
