Storyboard Description

A story from New Zealand, retold by Jennifer Bassett Woman often Knit socks or scarves for their husband; grandmothers knit little jackets for their children's babies. Buying a gift is quick and easy, but making a gift with your own hands takes longer. And if, like Leonard's wife, your hands are old and stiff and crooked with arthritis, perhaps knitting is not the best thing to do...
