22 Rows of Rib and Time for a Tim Tam

Phew .. I've just finished day 2 of a mystery knitalong with the Knit4Charities group. The Knitalong is a feature of the group's annual conference (Confab) and is something to do in between the different activities. The instructions are also posted on our group site for those of us who weren't able to make it to confab for one reason or another. Unfortunately, because of a couple of health issues, I wasn't able to attend this year but have been having fun with the mystery knitalong. Here was part 1 completed
At this point I wondered what we were making - perhaps a hat ?? Part 2 arrived at around midday today, and after 22 rows of rib, I'm not sure its a hat after all. What do you think? Wonder what it could be?
Sorry about the colour in the second picture - lighting is not so good at night. The first picture is very close to the actual colour. What has me puzzled is that somewhere along the line, another two colours will be used for this project. I've just received the email with Part 3 and at the end, after reducing down to 4 stitches it says to break off yarn - no mention of colour change. Now I'm really scratching my head. I hope to get Part 3 finished tonight as there is one more part which will be posted tomorrow.

Only one other FO to show you now and its this little doily which is very quick to make and ideal for a last minute gift.  I'm going to pop this one into a Mothers Day card I'm sending to my step-mother.
The pattern can be found here. Oh well, back to the knitting.


  1. I love Tim Tams! I have Australian friends that brought a bunch of them to a party many years ago. Yum yum! Nice knitting! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  2. Thanks for the visual on this KAL. Feeling a little guilty as I haven't started yet. Which needles were you taking about (are the in the photo)?

  3. Maria .. yes the needles in the photo are the ones I was talking about. They are a dream to use - soft and smooth. If I can find out what they are and where to get them, I'm going to buy several pairs.

  4. I have no idea what it is Dorothy, a wigwam for a gooses bridle comes to mind LOL


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment. I really appreciate hearing from you. xox
