Gerty, get on with your knitting

Now here’s an aspect of Great War literature I had never thought of before!
Julia Hedges blogs about a new CD of WW1 knitting songs, including

“Knocking at the Knitting Club”, the motivational “Gertie Get On With Your Knitting” and the catchy “And Then She’d Knit, Knit, Knit” which could only be Canadian with the following lyrics:
“She even knits while out in his canoe. She knits while Billy tries to bill and coo. . .”

The CD is by Melanie Gall, and you can hear samples from it here.
