Famous Knitters – Ingrid Bergman Redux

Ingrid Bergman (August 29, 1915 – August 29, 1982)

I noted Ingrid Bergman’s birthday two years ago - /2011/08/famous-knitters-ingrid-bergman.html

I think that she, along with Bette Davis and Joan Crawford, are the three actresses who have the most photographs of them knitting available on the Internet. The  young, always luminescent, actress appears at the very top of this post.

Here she is, putting Alfred Hitchock to work.

Not letting the makeup man interfere with her knitting.

Is this this knitting bag the same as the bag in the previous photograph?

Look at the red in this photograph, including the knitting!

The bags in the two black and white pictures are striped. The reddish one doesn't seem to be striped. My guess is that it is a different bag, chosen to add still more red to the picture.

Thanks, Tamar!

Since embarking on this series, I have become fascinated by knitting bags, official or random, from the 1920s through the 1950s.
