Vintage Patterns

On New Year's Eve, Jason and I were making some last minute purchases at the grocery store when I spotted Knit It! magazine on the check-out rack. Jason bought it for me, and I've gotten a lot of use out of it. In fact, it taught me how to cable! Anyway, on the last page there is a great historical tibit: it's a reproduction of a WWI poster imploring women to knit for the troops overseas.

The caption ends by saying that you should visit this Red Cross Museum page for vintage knitting patterns. Even if you're not interested in making a Navy Watch Cap or military-standards socks, it's interesting reading!
