Miss Marple Spins A Yarn

· By Grant Law · Published 9 months ago

Constructor's Note: Cowritten with Star Athena, this puzzle was an extra included in her monthly sock pattern subscription service. That month's theme was Agatha Christie, so we created a puzzle to appeal to those who know mysteries and knitting.

    I love the double theme (though neither was very familiar to me) - nicely done!

      Thanks Mike! Pretty specific audience on this one, hopefully there are a few people out there that will really enjoy this.

        The homonym for 61D
        61D RAIN68-across homonym
        is 68A
        68A REINHalter attachment
        , not 67A
        67A EANDETowel text at the Borgnine/Merman home
        . That said, I'm a mere knitter wanna-be (real soon now) so I had to look up several terms, including lace frogging. I learned what it was, but not the answer - until I worked the adjacent clues. It made me laugh. Relaxing subjects too. Fun!
