Stealth crochet

As the number of crafting days between now and Christmas dwindles to a number I can count on the fingers of one hand, I am forced to hide what projects remain to be finished from those closest to me, and the problem with stealth crafting is this: you have to hide it from those closest to you.

Who is in the room with me determines which stealth project I reach for and which project I shove under a chair, into a closet, or discreetly place (what I hope is unnoticed) into one of my inviolable bags.

At my side is an assortment of hooks and a large pile of yarn with all of the colors used in every project I am working on.

The other problem is that I have nothing I can photograph, and I have to somehow write a blog post about crochet without reference the details of any project.

Complicating matters is the fact that I seem to be constitutionally incapable of working in one color; this means that the pile of yarn that surrounds me is nearly sufficient to insulate a small house.

If it were possible for me to go the next four days without eating or sleeping, I could get a lot more done.

I know that in the next 72 hours, I will make more progress than I believed was possible, and at the same time, I will fall short of my goals.

In the meantime, I will have to keep my projects straight and do my best to make sure that the intended gift is safely hidden from the recipient’s line of vision.
