Knit One, Purl 2

June 21, 1942"The Examiner patriotic song "Knit One, Purl Two" was recorded by Glenn Miller and his Orchestra. Words to the song appeared in the American Weekly section of today's newspaper."
"Knit one, purl two This sweater, my darling,’s for you While vigil you‘re keeping through rain and storm This sweater will keep you warm Purl two, knit one Our trials I know have begun And while you are fighting each battle through My darling, my heart’s with youI just left the cot where our little Todd In sleep was smiling He must have dreamed of you...Knit one, purl two My darling, whenever I’m blue It’s comfort to know that when he’s a man He‘ll be glad that his Dad came through Knit one, purl two..."
