One of the original knitters!

My great-great grandmother knit continental style in the German province of Bavaria. She taught my grandmother who taught me. This picture was most likely taken not too long before the publication of the now classic Weldon's Practical Needlework series originating in the late 1800s.

My great grandmother (your great great) and you look so much alike - very beautiful. I would love to see a picture of your Grandmother who taught you to knit, and a picture of the two of you, knitting together!
