When I saw the title of the book, I couldn't resist! My mother-in-law had no idle time...when she sat, she was either knitting or crocheting. And her name was Nellie...how fitting. I have a sister-in-law who also loves to knit...also named Nell!
As usual, her hands have been busy...as usual, she is being generous! The girls were all excited about their new scarves and hats...but since they are in Easter colours, I'm thinking they will be part of our Easter egg hunt this year!
Ryder's hat was perfect for him too...
And I just had to throw in this picture of Nellie Avenue...taken on a very wet spring day somewhere on the Oregon Coast. With a few Nellies in the family, I thought it might come in handy some day. Nell or Nellie is one of those old-fashioned names that has become a popular baby name in recent years.
So that's my tribute to all the 'knitting nells' out there!
