The start of multitasking?

At the exhibition 'Knitting!' in the Fries Museum there are several showcases telling about the history of knitting in the Netherlands. This particular display shows a number of knitted cakes and pies as well as a few magazines from 1934; the left one named 'praten & breien' or 'chatting & knitting'. Well, I am pretty sure 'multitasking' wasn't a word yet in the 1930s but is this how it began for the women in the Netherlands? ;)

4 opmerkingen:

  1. One has to look twice at them to make sure they're not food!

  2. I could tell there weren't any calories in these, William. :-)

  3. Leuk gedaan, taartjes breien, het wordt steeds creatiever.

  4. These knitted items look so real! Happy New Year!


Don't be shy and leave a comment. I'd love to read what you think!
