Spinning and Knitting

Spinning and Knitting - German-Russian Social, Cultural & Heritage History
The making of woolen socks, mittens, sweaters and scarves had to go through a process, first spinning then knitting. The GR lady on the (right) is spinning the wool into yarn, while the lady on the (left) is knitting. This picture clearly illustrates what the process was for making clothes that were needed in the family. Every young girl was taught by her mother or grandmother to be able to look after her husband and children in this all-important way. The lady on the right (spinning) is Christina (Schnell) Henkel, Duffield, AB, CA, while the lady on the left (knitting) unknown. (Circa 1950’s)
