Well look what we found in the mailbox, yes just as Beck hit the six month mark the first booty delivery arrives, hot of the needles of her Great Auntie Anne.That's her below, pictured in the garden packed and ready to head off on a Scandinavian cycling tour sometime in the 50's. The English ladies of Beck's family have all been crafters, from waaaaaay back. Apparently the pattern for the booties is the one favoured by her great grandmother, or "old nana" as Beck used to call her.
That's Lily Gibbs (aka 'old nana') below, with Beck's grandmother (aka 'young nana') below. Now apart from being a killer crafter, she was also a channel swimmer, married twice (the second time to a wayward tattooed merchant marine) immigrated to Australia in her 60's and up until her dying day was a very keen lover of the wrestling... quite a woman really.
and an excellent role model for the 'widget'.
