Our neighbor Princess and her daughter Angela would show up regularly at our house, and Susan would teach Princess how to knit. Princess lived nearby and took to knitting quickly and became quite good at it. In those days few people knitted in our area. This was perhaps because few folks had the time given how much most people had to do just to get by. Princess seemed to me to be less busy than others. She certainly had Angela to take care of, and she did this well. About 2 or 3 years old Angela hung on her mother all the time. Princess was a gentle and loving mother.
