What if the grandmother is knitting something unusual? That could break a stereotype.
Here’s an example: What if she knits burial shrouds for the local funeral parlor. She uses her skill to give people a certain dignity in death. Say she knits an ornate face covering that softens the impact of their deathly repose.
A stereotype can have enough of a twist about it that it becomes unique that way.
