I think you are underestimating the sneakiness.
Mata Hari has returned. Modus operandi for yarn and pattern were similar to her last mission. But a few new tactics this time, 'cause, well, she is a spy after all.
Newspytactic #1: She started with 60 stitches instead of 64. All that running around and dodging bullets must've trimmed her down a bit. So did depression from not being able to score a goddam Wii Fit.
Newspytactic #2: Knowing the enemy would expect her to spiral up the right side, she spiraled up the left. This also helped avoid the amateur 2-YO cover-blowing incident from her last mission.
This time, when it came to the spirals, she got smart. (Get it? Get Smart? Bahahahaha!)
Newspytactic #3: Now that she's had a little more training in the field, she
Newspytactic #4: She's taller now. Must be the requisite yet impractical stiletto boots all chick spies are required to wear in movies directed by men.
Come into my spiral, said the sock yarn to the stash.
Newspytactic #5: She had a fling with another operative, code named Sherman Heel. While she doesn't normally form attachments to short row operatives, she likes him. He's easier to pick up and doesn't get all clingy and wrappy like her previous affairs.
All in all, a highly successful mission.
There is another skein of this yarn that looks to seek asylum in Sockweezia, but Mata Hari has gone underground. Therefore, we may need to cave and call on the ubiquitous Jaywalker to liberate it from the stash. He's never been the right fit before, but this new skein may be just the yarn to take him down. We'll have details on that mission coming soon. weezalana, out.
