Yarn spotting at the museum

A lovely family day out at The Black Country Living Museum included three unexpected wool-related sightings!

Skeins of wool in the window of the 1920s General Stores …


A hand-knitted tank-top in the window of the men’s outfitters, H Morrall, set in 1935 …


and a crocheting demonstration on the canal barges, as this was apparently a common activity which could be done while steering the barge. Multi-tasking was the norm, even before it had a name!


What has made you think of knitting this week? I’d love to know!
