Hi all - Just finished the first book (I read fast once I get going), and I kept track of how many knitting references I found. I found 8 references to knitting and 1 to crochet.
Most of the references are to Mrs. Rachel Lynde's knitted "quilts" - would that be like an afghan or what? Does anyone know?
Marilla also knits a lot in the first book, but they never say what she is making. I expect she is making socks or something similarly practical like dishcloths. :)
If anyone wants a listing of the references, I still have them marked.
