A girl knitting

Today at the boot sale I bought a cheap print of this picture. It took me ages to Google it as the artist apparently painted several different pictures with the same title, Strickendes Mädchen. Some people would call this chocolate box but I love the concentration on her face, the detail of her hands and the way she holds the yarn. What do you think she is making? It looks too big for a stocking.

I also got a 1930s edition of Gaudy Night, a Katherine Oldmeadow which I put on eBay and sold instantly, and a few paperbacks. Oh, and a couple more geraniums or Regal Pelargoniums.
