A couple of secret knit reveals

I gifted two of my secret knits this afternoon, so I can show you photos!!  Yay!!

A gorgeous friend of mine D, and her hubby S are attending the Mind Body Spirit Festival in Brisbane in a month or so.  They have been told that whilst loading and unloading at the beginning and end of the festival, they must wear safety gear.  Fluro vests and the like.  Well, I was in my local Spotty store and came across some nuclear, radioactive yellow acrylic yarn.  So bright it looks like it glows in the dark.  (It doesn't, but I think it'd be kinda cool if it did!)  I thought a couple of gag gifts were in order.

Snowflakes on Mulberries.  Pretty pattern, love how the decreases at the top form a snowflake, just not in this yarn.  This one's for S.

Hmmm ... Blogger put it sideways ...
Escargot.  This one's for D.  Again a really pretty pattern, just not in this yarn.  I think I'll have to make this one again. In nice yarn.

I've been teasing my long suffering friends with hints of gag gifts, and photos of eye-searingly yellow knitting for weeks.  I'm pleased to say they went down a treat with D.  I sent her home with both hats, but haven't heard anything yet about what S thinks of his.  I hope he laughs.  That was the whole point of the excersise for me - making lovely people laugh.
