Angeline knitted six of these bedspreads, one for each of her children. This was done sometime between 1855 when she was married and 1908 at her death. She knitted it in squares and joined them. The yarn was spun by her, most likely. This was probably done by lamp or candle light.
This view of the spread shows the crochet border that was added to the knitted spread. We do not know who did that but it is beautiful.
