Spotted in Paris

Two things I just had to share:

'La Tricoteuse' at the Musee d'Orsay. She is knitting on dpns! Maybe a stocking - it looks too long to be a sock but is quite wide - perhaps the top of a stocking.


And this wonderful creation, crochet sculpture? In a shop window in a very snobby part of town all among the Gucci bags. Price tag €392. Gulp! I'm obviously in the wrong business.

Au revoir!

Just think - in a hundred years one of your descentants will look at a photo of you and Pipi and say "What on Earth is Great-Grandma doing with those pointy things?"
Or energy-wasting machinery may have been banned and everyone will be knitting their own socks.
