I think that every girl in the 19th Century must have been taught to knit. I know that I could knit before I went to Infants' School at the age of five. I wonder how many are taught it today?

I had never heard of the knitting maddona!

Mary Lou

When I see older films with someone knitting who is clearly not knitting and mention it, my husband has suggested that I become a stunt knitter.

That Madonna has always struck me as one of the less attractive BVMs in medieval art.


My comment isn't relevant to the topic of knitting actresses, however I have been thinking of you this evening, I am watching "Far From the Madding Crowd" on youtube, lots of sheep and working women's tie shawls, if you have not watched it, I would recommend it! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qEYBiedhVKc
