Knitting and World War II




Knitting was a way for the homefront to support the front lines. To help kick off the new exhibit World War II: 48 Local Stories that Changed the World at the Frazier International History Museum, we will be knitting authentic World War II socks (pattern courtesy from the American Red Cross) Saturday, October 10, 12-4 pm.
If you would like to come knit with us, please let us know. Or come down and visit. The exhibit looks very interesting!

I printed out some nice patterns today from Ravelry and the internet.

I am planning on being there but if my friend needs me she takes priority.

It sound very interesting and I think I will go ahead and get some yarn and start on a "watchcap" that you can take even if I don't attend.

I will send or post the link to the patterns I found just in case anyone else would like them.

Here is the link to WWII patterns:

There are some cute ones here including unusual ear warmers, a helmet hat, bed socks and spiral socks among others.

Also, her own original patterns are very nice.

I printed out the sock pattern- can I at least use nice yarn?
