Miss Pickerell's Knitting Bag

"Well, I'll have to do something while I'm waiting," she reasoned, trying to be practical. She sat down at the table again and opened her knitting bag. The green-and-white skirt she was crocheting for Rosemary was in there and so was a pair of socks with a diamond pattern that she was making for Euphus."

Miss Pickerell to the Earthquake Rescue by Ellen MacGregor and Dora Pantell, illustrated by Charles Geer
This book came home with us from the library. In this chapter Miss Pickerell has been locked inside an office within a mysterious research facility while searching for two missing scientists. That's her knitting bag on the table at the left, but it's the coffee pot on the warmer that keeps pulling my eye - as well as Miss Pickerell's shirtdress with dark tights and heels!
