Just In Case; or, Fun with 500; or, Everyone's Doing It

Just in case Mr. Cool ever becomes president, I have a very first-lady-ish hobby going.

There are dozens of photos of Eleanor knitting. She was always knitting. Especially on planes. It would be amusing to see her deal with the TSA today about her knitting needles.

This is Grace Coolidge, wife of Calvin Coolidge, for those of you who didn't automatically recognize her. She loved to knit as well. She also crocheted--including a coverlet for the Lincoln Bedroom.

In fact, as I celebrate my 500th post on this blog, loads of people love to knit (or at least pretend.) Check it out!
