WIP Wednesday 164: A Golden Moustache

Fantastic Menagerie Tarot

At last ! We seem to have forward motion - not only is the Infidelity project blocked and done, but a hat destined for my MIL only took me a day or so.

And that was just to occupy me until the new SusannaIC Mystery Knit-A-Long (MKAL) started on the weekend, the spontaneous addition to the head of my queue:

Yes, it looks astonishingly like a moustache right now, after the completion of Clue 1; but I am sure it will not stay that way for long; the shaping is done through wrap&turns - I was glad to be using my Addi Turbos with the lovely sharp points, I can tell you.

The gorgeous lace-weight yarn is hand-dyed BFL from Kirsty over at Wharfedale Woolworks; the colorway is 'Caramello', a perfect name for all the rich golden yellow, amber and brown shades. She definitely has a gift for color.

But what to do now ? The next clue is released at the weekend, and I surely can't sit doing nothing til then. I could get on with the sleeves for Titch's Old Man Cardigan, but the siren call of Linda Choo's Forest Pansy Shawl combined with a new set of KnitPro Symfonie fixed circulars AND the Jamieson&Smith lace yarn my MIL sent me ....  well, it is deafeningly irresistible.

There are people with way more WIPs than me over at Tami's Amis .....


  1. Wow, what a concept: knitting something and not knowing what it'll turn out to be. Well, not that I always know, either, but that's due to incompetence rather than design ;)

  2. Ooo another person doing a MKAL shawl :) I'm doing the Booknits one, all over lace and beads, eep!

  3. It IS a gorgeous colour. I just finished a pair of socks in a colourway called "Sandalwood" that looked very similar. I guess we're both in an autumn/pumpkin-spice mood :)

  4. It's looking great so far!!
    Lovely mystery knitting :)


Thanks ! I love comments :-)
