I found these advertisements in a copy of Needlecraft Practical Journal No 117.
Must have been awful just knitting in khaki. white, natural, greys and drabs ... what on earth is drab - beige, perhaps?
I suppose it was a great way to get women who couldn't go out to work to help.
Wonder if there was a quality control centre - or some poor chaps got the socks with dropped stitches.
Has anyone been watching BBC's "The Village" on Sunday evenings? Its a bit drab (that's my word for the day)!!!!! But I suppose it must have been a dreadful struggle for many to keep the family together and provide enough food for them to eat.
Can't wait for the return of The Paradise, Ripper Street, Mr Selfridge, Call the Midwife - think I prefer my history with a touch of glamour, humour ... and handsome men! Funnily enough don't feel that I want to add Downtown to this list, thought the last series was a bit flat. Perhaps I was expecting too much.
