Back in the Day
As I mentioned before, I found a great knitting book from 1920 in my Grandmother's attic and I am adding a lot of the patterns one at a time to my blog. As I type them in, I notice that they are written as if EVERYONE knew how to knit. I talked to my mom (88 years old) about this and she said, "Well, everyone did know how to knit..and sew and cook and embroider and set a proper table." They were taught from an early age to be wonderful wives and mothers. I just wonder what the world (and our children) wouuld be like today if those things didn't change. If women were content with staying at home raising their children and creating a 1920 home. Something to think about.
