Re-establishing the Department for Knitted Garments for the Royal Navy.
Check out this great new knitting project from the National Museum for the Royal Navy – http://www.historicdockyard.co.uk/news/news450.php. Inspired by the discovery of 1940s knitting patterns from the ‘Department for Knitted Garments for the Royal Navy’, the National Museum for the Royal Navy has launched a community knitting project to get members of the public, naval personnel and Guerilla Knitters to create a maritime themed ‘yarnscape’ for the museum! The project celebrates the cultural heritage of crafting in the Navy and seeks to continue the tradition by asking anyone currently posted on a ship to knit or crochet a sea creature for the artwork.
