Show and Tell 3
The knee length socks were also authentic. These were knitted on a 1933 sock machine which was used all through the war to knit socks for soldiers. The measurements came from an old knitting book. I had nearly as much fun making these as he had doing his 1940's school day.
This is the machine used to make the socks. The yarn was 2 strands of 2/30s acrylic so was not at all authentic!
