Old war posters fascinate me. I love the scary graphics and even the lettering seems intimidating. Somehow, they manage to even make knitting seem cold and aggressive. I am stunned, shocked, and a little creeped out.

We are going through this era in my American History 2 class, and I am really intrigued ny the at-home war effort, especially the knitting.

I just bought a copy of a the "Knit for Defense" pattern book on ebay. I planned to make some things for friends and family who are serving, but I figure the probably dont need a garter stich sweater in 120 degree heat.

Please remember: I have a collection of needles and a history of violence
