I didn’t actually realise this but the term ‘spinster’ actually referred to a woman who spun wool, thereby living independently of a male wage (well so it says here) so I now quite like it and am happy to be a spinster afterall … and am looking forward to quoting this to all future name callers :o)
If anyone else has any images relating to knitting let me know.
Have a lovely weekend everyone x
First let me say thank you so much for all the lovely messages after my previous post. Still not feeling great but the sunshine really helped today. Not sure spending the day digging in the garden helped as I now have a sore back and a finger wrapped up in plasters.
Who cares, it was so worth it. I’ll share some pics with you tomorrow.
I found this image online as I was looking for quirky images relating to knitting. I was really drawn to it, obviously because of the knitting but also because of the title “Spinster”. It’s from 2008 by Daniela Edburg. My sister (younger) is getting married shortly and this term has been (jokingly … hmmm) used a few times.
