This is one of my favorite paintings:
A few years ago, Kevin almost bought it for me. We saw it in a store that sold framed prints. The price was great, but the mat was messed up. I've been sorry ever since that I turned him down on his offer to buy it for me! I'm planning on getting it from allposters.com someday soon. It would be lovely in my sewing room.
The rest of these paintings are ones I found online. If you want to know where the image was found, google "girl knitting" and you can see the source.
This painting shows a wealthy girl knitting:
The rest of the paintings I've posted depict lower-class girls.
The picture is too small to tell, but I wonder if she's making socks as well?
It must not have been uncommon for little girls to know how to knit socks, and they were probably making the family supply of socks, not doing it for pleasure, like I do!
