Hi @katie02,

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.
