You rest your head in your hands then idly pick up a knitting needle. But there's something odd about it – it's larger than you usually use. And now your fingerprint has activated it, sending a beam of light towards the wall. You watch as flashing images show first the calendar you spotted earlier, then a series of photos of knitted items being finished in a flash and wrapped just in time.
Then you hear the Secretary's voice:
"Agent Knitter ‐ your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to complete all your knitting projects in only 1 week! This message will self‐destruct in 5 seconds."
The knitting needle smoulders and vanishes and you realise the answer. You have the ultimate secret weapon – chunky yarn.
Your other half gingerly steps into the knitting room with a cup of tea and a reinforcing mince pie on a plate and stands in awe at the growing pile of items waiting to be blocked and finished.
And yes, we have just been watching some Mission Impossible films, how can you tell ...
The patterns shown in the photographs are:
Another new pattern, the Malvern Bath Mat. This comes in three sizes for a shower/wash basin, bath tub or a larger, dressing room size. The small size only uses 2 balls of each colour and works up very quickly.
So go for it, Agent Knitter! You can still do it!
Oh and if you’re wondering, all three of these patterns use stitches taken from our Reversible Knitting Stitches book! So once you have completed all your knitting, you can sit back and peruse through the E-book for ideas ready for some post-holiday knitting.
Good luck with your mission!
