I have a knitting blog. (Which you probably know, because you are currently reading it.)
On said knitting blog, which I committed myself to updating every other day, I discuss my current projects, successes, epic failures, and quirks.
I also have something called the Christmas Queue, which is the list of all the gifts I need to make by Christmas.
The Christmas Queue essentially devours all available knitting time from approximately September 1 through December 24. (And often later, since I tend to give out gift IOUs.)
The recipients of projects on the Christmas Queue have 2 things in common.
1. I love them
2. They are the vast majority of people who read this blog!
There is a definite incompatibility problem here. I want to blog about what I am knitting, I want people to read my blog, and yet I don't want anyone's Christmas surprise to be spoiled.
It is a conundrum.
