Wartime Knitting Posters

My very talented and adorable seamstress friend, Chris Bobin, just got back from a trip to England. While she was there she visited the Imperial War Museum and picked up these interesting post card versions of old wartime prints asking women to lend a hand.

Chris gave me the one on the left, and she kept the one on the right (appropriately).  Don't you just love the little button feet and the thimble hat on that guy? And that tangle of yarn is a sight I'm pretty familiar with.

They are both a really interesting look into England's dramatic WWII history. They are so lighthearted and whimsical. It's hard to imagine how terrifying those times must have really been.
