Famous Knitters

While stuck on Pinterest – it’s a black hole of a website, don’t go there unless you actually want your life to drain away – I came across a couple of pictures of famous people knitting. I thought I’d share them as it’s interesting (to me anyway) to see how many people out there who can honestly afford to buy whatever they want choosing to make things with their own two hands.

Princess Elizabeth and Princess Margaret relax in the grounds of Royal Lodge Windsor where they practice their knitting skills. 1940.

My favourite – Audrey Hepburn during a break in John Huston’s movie ‘The Unforgiven’, 1960 Durango, MEXICO.
