Four generations of knitters


Here we are - four generations of knitters photographed c 1949, although my knitting skills probably weren't up to much in those days! I'm the titch in the smocked dress; behind me (left to right) are my Grandma Elsie, Mum Amy and Great Grandma Amy. Grandma Elsie crocheted as well as she knitted and made lace collars, cuffs and doilies; filet crochet tablecloth edgings and curtains. She was the person who thrust a hook into my chubby little hand and showed me how to crochet. I think I was extremely fortunate, growing up surrounded by these talented ladies and learning how to knit, crochet and make clothes.


What a completely brilliant photo. Apart from the whole knitting/crocheting heritage thing; it's a very good study of Four Extremely Determined Women... and a beautiful portrait - thanks for showing it!
