Wow, knitting blind. I don't think I could do anything but plain stockinette stitch blind. Everything else I need to see! That's really cool though.

Great photo - I love snippets on the history of knitting and how it's intertwined with the lives of women in the past. Just read a great book on the traditional Guernsey sweaters of the Cornwall, England region at the turn of the century. Thanks for the post!
