boys who like purls

I read this awesome article about a woman who introduced knitting to men's prisons, and the calming effect it had on the prisoner's lives...and then I somehow ended up bookmarking a bunch of photos of old-timey men knitting.  I don't know, the internet.  sometimes it's like that.





(p.s. I'm working on getting the Watercolor Heart pattern ready to upload, so if you like it stay tuned!)

These are great photos-- #3 and #4, though-- I've never seen anyone hold knitting needles like that? Makes me wonder if those two are staged?

they do seem awkward, don't they? especially #3, it appears he's got his ball of yarn under his armpit?
