Anna Knits!

I'll be heading to London in a few weeks, and while I'm there I hope to visit the Freud Museum. That's what comes of having a PhD in Psychology. So I was just visiting the museum's web page, and happened across this little bit of information about Anna, Freud's daughter (and a well-known psychologist in her own right): "Anna Freud was a keen weaver and a knitting enthusiast, this latter activity being one which she practiced during analyses of patients." The museum has her loom on display. I wonder what she knitted as she listened to her patients?
