NMRN: Get The Navy Knitting ...

Discussion in 'Bases / Shore Est' started by soleil, Jun 21, 2012.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. How many Rum Rationers can knit, then?
  2. I can. This sounds awesome.
  3. I was once told by a DO I had more chance of knitting fog than going through for hossifer....does that count?

    Here we go again...during the 2nd WW we used to knit squares and balaclava's. I was useless at casting on and off, but a dab hand at the knitting.

  5. Then you joined the Navy, found yourself on the pointy end, and someone said.............'cast off for'ed'.....then you got the hang of it !
  6. Once knitted a balaclava in silver string for my wife's teddy bear, she wanted to dress it a knight with chain mail.

    last time, never again.
  8. Knitting saved my great uncle in-laws life. Whilst on a minesweeper in the Channel during WWII they were on the upper deck when the killick gunner said they'll do some gunnery practice. As he went below to stow his knitting the ship was hit by a torpedo. All the remaining gun crew on deck were killed.
    The second time he lost a ship from underneath his feet.
