This vintage storybook illustration, titled The Knitting Lesson, features a mother teaching her young daughter know to knit. The mom, seated on a chair outdoors, is knitting with blue yarn as her little girl, standing by her side, intently watches her mother knitting. The image is from a storybook titled The Sunbeams and Me, by Helen Marion Burnside & Nesbit, Mary Dickens, M. A. Hoyer, and others, illustrated by Helen Jackson, Jane Willis Grey, Fanny Bowers, and others. The book was published by Raphael Tuck & Sons in the late 1800s. Click on image to enlarge.
