…the one woman who had stood conspicuous, knitting, still knitted on with the steadfastness of Fate.

In mythology, Fate is the goddess (or one of the goddesses) of destiny. In Greek mythology, the Fates were a trio of goddesses – Clotho (“spinner”), Lachesis (“measurer”), and Atropos (“inexorable”). Clotho was said to spin the thread of life, Lachesis to draw it out to a certain length, and Atropos to cut it off. In light of this tradition of “spinning,” the knitting of Fate-like Madame Defarge echoes the vocation of her classical predecessors.
