This bit of characterization really impressed me. The shots of the proficiently knitting hands were a great touch, and the darting camera gave the viewers a sense of Susan's overactive mind. She and her family wear all sorts of great 1950s handknits throughout the series as well--a little nod to this side of her. I like to imagine, however, that, with her analytical brain, she would have written her own patterns and made them almost needlessly complex to occupy herself.
