“It’s right under your nose!”



Hi Strands fans. A nice and simple one for you today, even if the theme is a little misleading if you, like me, don't have a mustache.

The word TOOTHBRUSH jumped out at me immediately, when I saw it twisted around the bottom right-hand corner. 

I then saw WALRUS to its right and figured out that this was about mustaches. And I didn't have to look far to see MUSTACHE spelt across the middle of the board for the spangram.

There were only three to find in the top half, and it didn't take me long to tick them off one by one. HANDLEBAR started immediately above the spangram, and PENCIL was also easy to spot on the right-hand side.

That just left HORSESHOE to get, and while it's not a mustache style I'd heard of, it doesn't take much imagination to guess what it might look like...
