Remember, 50% of each sale will be donated to the Women’s Land Army Tribute, Which is working to raise enough funds to provide a permanent memorial and lasting tribute to all of the Land Girls. They are still raising funds to commission a sculptor to design and create an appropriate memorial, to organize an appropriate dedication ceremony, and to raise awareness of the project and make every effort to contact former Women’s Land Army Girls and Lumber Jill’s.

“If you’re looking for an historically relevant book about knitting during World I & II with awesome patterns, then look no further. It’s officially here and Rohn Strong is the genius behind the idea and the book. My favorite his & her patterns are the Bess & Audie cardigans. I’ll be putting those on the needles after I’ve finished all my Christmas knitting. My 2nd favorite pattern is John because it’s a very simplistic turtleneck that I believe a man or a woman could wear.
I would highly recommend this book for knitters of all ages and all skill levels. The patterns are very easy to follow and most of the techniques a well practiced beginner would be very comfortable with.” -Fibre Mage
“The historical information and patterns work together well to paint a picture of the time. If you are a history buff and a knitter, this book is well worth it and I’m really glad to have been part of this project.” -Jennybean
“I am not a huge fan of history to be honest, but when I saw the sweater on the cover of this book it caught my attention. I purchased the book after looking at a few images on Ravelry and falling in love with the patterns in it. I would definitely recommend this book to beginners and advanced knitters alike. The designer has done a wonderful job putting together a collection that really speaks to vintage knitwear. I have yet to sit down and read the book but have already cast on for the hat Ohata. A great buy!” -Harrison Strone
