How do I hide my knitting
I bought some gray laceweight yarn a couple of months ago waiting for the perfect pattern. Well yesterday, I found the perfect pattern, but I do not want to show my husband because it is a surprise for Valentine's Day. And no I cannot knit in front of him, he notices my knitting. So besides not knitting on it while he is home, what other ways can I hide my knitting?

Knit naked. He won't notice what's on the needles.

Perfect! But she won't get any knitting done then either!
tell him it's a scarf/hat/afghan or whatever for someone else.

Ingrid, you CRACK ME UP! "Knit naked"

I sometimes tell my husband to watch a show he likes (and I don't) on the TV adding that I'm going to work on some laundry. Go in laundry room, put on a load and sit and knit. He's none the wiser... until of course, he sees a ton of loads of clean but yet to be folded clothes and gobs of progress on my current projects. LOL...

Okay, I must admit that I like the knit naked approach better. LOL

Must be a place he doesn't go... the cabinet where the vacuum is? Under the bed?

Love the knitting naked, but no knitting would get done. Hiding it in the hall closet with the vacuum is out, because he vacuums. I think it will just go under the bed for now, until it gets a little bigger. Hopefully I will be posting pictures before Valentine's Day of what I am now trying to hide.
