Anne Scott-James RIP

I loved this paragraph from her obituary this week, about her first job at Vogue magazine in 1934

She got the job none the less, on the strength of her claim (untrue) to be an experienced knitter. An early assignment was to unravel and remake a baby's knitted jumper sent in by an irate reader; the jumper had been made without a hole for the head because of an error in the Vogue knitting pattern. Soon she was unravelling and reknitting all manner of misfits. Later she became beauty editor.
