"Our jungle fighters want socks"


The great thing about creative people is that they tend to really think about what you might like when they send you things.

I've been meaning to show you this card since Claire sent it to me with some item she was destashing. The card is perfect for a knitter and it is one I hadn't seen before. That's not very surprising since I tend to be more familiar with the Second World War from the other, German, side of things. It was only in recent years that I became aware of how much knitting was being done for soldiers by British citizens at home. 

Having such a little piece of history on a card is oddly lovely.
