December stealth knitting

Today it is cold outside here in England.  It is nearly noon and it is still below freezing out!  Luckily it is Saturday, I am on my own all weekend (Doug is on his way to sunny Australia), I worked like crazy this week at the office and actually accomplished some things, and I have enough food, wine, knitting, and books on hand to let me hide away for the entire weekend.  As I am typing this, they are broadcasting snow warnings on the radio, and I say “Let it snow!”

I am knitting away like mad on a project I am trying to keep a bit under the wraps on the blog.  Why?  Because it is December, and that means that it is time for December stealth knitting!   I will show you just one sneaky photo (because I can’t resist).  This is designed to give a little peek at what I’m up to, without giving away too much.


How many of you are busy with some December stealth knitting of your own this weekend?

  1. Glad you went for that colour combination.. it looks fabulous! It was my favourite 😉
    I’m also in England and sitting indoors, and feeling cold…. maybe it’s time to prepare a cup of tea! I was planning to stay indoor the whole weekend, but a last-minute fair has come up, so I’ll have to head out tomorrow…. brrrrrr
    Have a lovely, relaxing and productive weekend!

  2. Lovely yarn and the colours look great together! Enjoy your weekend, looking out at the cold weather and snuggly tucked inside doing what you love! I plan to knit a toque (hat) for my 91 year old dad but am not motivated to start because loving my current project, Boxy & Buttony by Joji, and time is getting on …..

  3. Love the concept of “stealth knitting”. 🙂
    I can scarcely comprehend the ABILITY of today’s young knitters. I know that had I been deep into the knitting society 40 years ago I would’ve been surrounded by ladies able to knit great things; but it’s the kind of … of casual brilliance with which you guys turn out gorgeous things, and never a hair turned that amazes me. I derive huge enjoyment from seeing such beautiful renditions of the craft.
    Oz can be sunny (say, in Brisbane) and bloody pissing down (here in Geelong); I hope your feller is coming over to a part that’s bright and not humid …

  4. Enjoy your weekend in and snowed in! I have been doing lots of stealth knitting, but I am actually taking a break from it to do a test knit this week. I anticipate that I will be wrapping a WIP, a ball of yarn and needles for Christmas morning, then taking it all back to work on once opened and puzzled at. But I needed a break.

    I love those colors you wound up with, I think it is great looking, for an unknown mystery project, lol!

  5. Love that blue! I’m just returning to knitting, only to find so much has changed! I knitted a snowman family in time for Christmas, now all tucked away until next year. My partner has requested socks – SOCKS!!! Nothing like easing me in gently, with a scarf or hat, then!
