Moist von Lipwig

Got this month's installment of the Twisted Disc yarn club--it's a gorgeous range of colors and so appropriate for the character! Moist is the (anti)hero of Terry Pratchett's Going Postal and Making Money. He's a con man who gets coerced into running first the Ankh-Morpork Post Office and then its Bank. The gold sparkles in the yarn are an echo of his golden postmaster's outfit--the one with the winged hat.

Okay, so you need to read the book. But only if you like to laugh.

That really is an "Ellen" colorway, isn't it? My friend Louise also covets it. We'll have to see if the dyer will repeat it once the club is over!
