Knit for Victory

Google has the photo archives from "Life" magazine (you youngsters don't remember Life, but it was a grand mag, with amazing photos every week. Kind of People without the gossip). I found some cool pictures from World War II, when the Allies were all 'knitting for victory:

This lady is knitting a sock, while defending freedom.

Soldier modeling his handknit fingerless gloves, great for a smoke break.

Here's a practical hat/scarf combo.
