Girl Knitting

 on 


This young girl in the beret was knitting something in Hyde Park during lunchtime.

I associate knitting with something my grandmother did. As a child I had countless sweaters and winter scarf knitted by her. Usually in a mix of blue and white threads.

These days knitting is a not an activity one sees often. Sometimes there will be a lady on try train ustilising the time to knit something up. It is a skill that no longer saves money as the cheap imports from developing countries undercut the need of making garments yourself. And yet, I hope that many kids in generations to come will have nice memories as I have of a sweater knitted by their close ones.
