Out of the blue today I got a message from a distant cousin. She had just finished the bobbles chapter in The Yarn Whisperer and wanted me to know that there really was a time before my grandma wore turtlenecks. She attached this picture as proof, which I had never, ever seen before. Without further ado, may I present the beautiful woman behind the story (and the turtlenecks). #grandmasofknitlandia
