    ¡Hola!
    Cuál sería la traducción de: they were wont to tell in awed voices.
    En el contexto:"She had knitted sixteen of them, as Avonlea housekeepers were wont to tell in awed voices".
    Gracias.

    "Be wont to" es "soler": "... como solían decir, maravilladas, las amas de llaves de Avonlea".
