Knit for Victory (over the cold)

Ok, so this site combines several of my favorite things:  Museum archives, old patterns, and the “new” knitting craze.  I can’t resist sharing it:

And interesting that what on our side of the pond is called a “ski mask” on the Brit side is called a “Balaclava”, after the war in the Crimea, when British soldiers didn’t have warm enough gear.

Stay warm on this frosty weekend!
