WIP Wednesday 111: At Last

Fenestra Tarot

So here we are on another WIP Wednesday - and of course, I have one in the works; below are pics of the blanket for my sister Auntie Fashion, after 2 skeins-worth of James C.Brett's 'Moonlight Sonata'. I have sent her a ransom message, saying send cash for more yarn or the blankey gets it. 

I am assured the cash for at least one more skein (perhaps even two) is en route as we speak ...


And I guess by the law of averages, it would happen in the end. I actually scored some good stuff in one of my local charity shops, the St.Elizabeth Hospice clearance shop, no less:


It says, 7 x 25g. balls, and the price is £1.50 ($2.44). Upon reaching home and hastily ripping open the bag to see what I'd bought, it turned out to be 8 balls of Paris Sheen Mohair by Sunbeam, 25g/50m (70% mohair, 13% wool, 9% nylon) in a lovely shade of light silver; now discontinued.


So at last, Mr. Kitten, I did find something cool and good and a bargain ! My one find vs. your hundreds. Still, I mustn't repine. It is currently sitting with a scented drawer sachet to reduce/remove the musty old aroma it brought with it. 

With this find, I hope I have started a trend for myself .... But go along to Tami's Amis and see what other trends are happening today ....


  1. I am loving that blanket so far ... and you can't go wrong with mohair. Nope. Almost never.

  2. Oooo! Mohair! That's a great score! I never have that type of good fortune at the thrift store.

  3. Congrats on a great find, hopefully the first of many! I trust you'll use that lovely silver mohair yarn for something special for yourself?
    As a kid I had a small plot in the garden and always planted glads. I think my faves were called the Midnight Queen (black) and Emerald Isle (green) - Mom did not appreciate my color choices.

  4. Wow and aw. I love that mohair. You've got really lucky!


Thanks ! I love comments :-)
