An abundance of mysteries

Mystery Beret by Woolly Wormhead. Instructions are posted on the Wormhead Hats forum in Ravelry. I've started mine in Rowan Pure Wool Aran, Praline colourway - to match my coat and mittens. The next clue is out tomorrow.
Mystery Beret - Clue 1
These socks however won't match anything!
Mosaic Mystery
November mystery socks from the Sock Knitters Anonymous group on Ravelry. I can't decide if I love them or loathe them! Made from Yarn Yard Bonny - the purple (main colour) is the last club yarn - I get a whole 100g of the solid. The green is left over from my embossed leaves and the yellow is a mini skein I bought a while ago (and used in my very stripey socks). What do you think? Love or Loathe - be honest!

I'm hoping to pick better colours for the Mystery Mitten KAL that Natalie at The Yard Yard will be hosting soon - see I told you Mitten fever was catching!

Ooooh, and look at those needles - my new knitpicks harmony circulars. I am going to master magic looping this week. I *may* have accidentally ordered some things from Alice at Socktopus this week....
If I show you very small pictures you may not be jealous

Two skeins of Malabrigo Sock - in Tiziano Red and Impressionist Sky and a skein of Dream in Colour Smooshy in Lipstick lava.
The DIC is going to be socks for me - I NEED red socks. I think one of the skeins of Malabrigo is going to go to my Sosesaswa Kit pal - but possibly not!

I'm sorely tempted by the mitten kal, I think it's seeing all of those mittens out there in blogland, and having a little cold snap last week. I thought you meant YY's variegated club yarn, but I see it's a solid yarn. Looks like we'll both have purple socks for SKA!

I see you were patient enough to wait for Alice to load all the Malabrigo colours on the site before your purchased! I went for Persia and Eggplant but that was before I saw the Tiziano! The new HazelKnits looks lovely too - Chocolatier - mmm! No no no no must not...
Those socks are... um... bright? I think its the yellow I don't like. But you love yellow so that's OK!

Mystery mittens... hmmm..!

I think the sock colours are fantastic, but maybe they're too much when combined with the sock pattern?

Love the socks- your yellow ones will feel distinctly dull beside them in your sock drawer!
Mystery beret looking good too!
