Crochet Quote: WWI Lace

Today’s crochet quote relates to the history of crochet. It’s from the introduction to A Complete Crochet Course Crochet Quote: WWI Lace by Muriel Kent.

“During the First World War most women could crochet and, after knitting socks for soldiers, the produced miles of white lace for their trousseaux, edging bed linen, tablecloths and nighties whilst waiting for their menfolk to return from the front.”
