It was only 102 days to Christmas and if he didn't get started very soon, he wouldn't manage to knit Christmas jumpers for all his team before the 25th.


"A search of his favorite stores revealed that most of the nice wool colors for sweaters were sold out. Not to be outdone, Biggles plumped for his next best choice...The team would love to have matching crocheted scarves..."

I suppose it could finish the scarf if you fastened it points down as the last flag. It would give the scarf a hippy feel. If I could crochet, I'd give it a go! A scarf of crocheted flags would be quite striking.

The clock on the mantlepiece struck three. Dust motes sparkled in the sunlight from the windows. The flat was silent save for the ticking of clocks.
Mrs Symes smoothed her apron and picked up her duster, she was going to dust the place thoroughly. Opening the door to Biggles bedroom she knelt by the bed and pulled a small case out from underneath. Releasing the clasps she paused briefly taking in the sight before her then solemnly placed the tiara on her head. If she was going to dust, she would do it in style.

Biggles stared at Mrs Symes in exasperation.
"But I WANT that goblet on that stand!" he argued. "Miss Janis and the Hauptmann will be so pleased."
"No, Major," was the firm reply. "There's not going to be any nasty bits of glass in any room where there's cushions and pillows being thrown about."
"And I thought they were called throw pillows," murmured Bertie sotto voce.
