Knitting Espionage

I’ve mentioned to Chris on a few occasions about my design notes for patterns looking like a secret code.

Well it appears I might have been nearer to the truth than I realised after reading an article on Atlas Obscura, titled ‘The Wartime Spies Who Used Knitting as an Espionage Tool‘.

Grandma was just making a sweater. Or was she?

It’s a fascinating article, and well worth a read…so if you see someone knitting in public, you’ll know why!
