    This is from A Tale of Two Cities by Dickens

    Hi Ann, I can’t find it in the book “A Tale of Two Cities.” Please let us know the chapter. Thanks!

    I searched through the full text of several of Dicken’s novels, including A Tale of Two Cities, and I did not find this quote. Although there WERE a lot of women knitting in his novels, and they were often underestimated by those around them.

    I think I found the one who wrote this; scroll down to August 9 on this Facebook page, her name is Helen Riddle…
