Whatcha Building?

I don't think my DH really understands my compulsive knitting, but he has never complained about it (probably because I have pointy sticks in my hands). He does try to take an interest and often when I settle down in my favorite chair to watch t.v. and knit he will look over and ask "Watcha building?" So I tell him it's another felted bag, or a scarf, or a hat, or socks or whatever, and he says, "Oh, that's nice." Last night he asked "whatcha building" and I said, "I don't know" - "You don't know?" "Nope - I have no idea. It's a mystery knit and I'm on Clue #5 of 7 and I don't have a clue what it is." I think he's more confused than ever about my knitting now! This is Mystery Knit #3 from the Holiday Mystery Gifts KAL Group

Clue #1 said the size is Adult Female - Well - I don't think it's going to fit this adult female! I have two more clues to go - and I can't wait to see what it is. This group is so much fun.

These two gift bag got a much better response from DH - he thought they were very pretty. They are the Evergreen and Christmas Rose gift bags from Handknit Holidays. I love them too - almost too much to give away!

And, yes, I do have another felted bag on the needles, and a second sock, and a project for Whoduknit, and a neck-warmer.............

Maybe I do knit too much? Nah....

that's not possible. I just wish I could figure out a way to knit more - so much yarn, so many patterns, and so little time!

OMG, it IS a pair of panties. I thought it might be when I saw your pic on the group, but if it said adult female,.....that's my vote. Gotta love your hubby. Too cute.

Love the bags. You rock!!!

Love the knitted gift bags! And yes.. your knit in progress there.. is certainly a puzzle! Luckily your getting close to done though!

I haven't done any of the mystery knits but am enjoying watching the various projects as they develop.

Those bags are lovely and I, like you, would be tempted to just tuck them away for myself.

I love those little bags too... my guess for your mystery knit is a shruggy kinda thing?? maybe?? lol.. yeah I have no idea... I can't wait to see what it is!.
