As much as I love that show, am I a bad person for being irked that they showed a crocheted blanket and said it was knitted? They did show several of the actresses actually knitting (one with double pointed needles because she was making a toy) and also seaming the squares together. And I love seeing the lovely sweaters of the 50's and heirloom baby outfits :)
Yes, it is a wonderful show for knitting from the 50's!
Another marvelous show for knitting is "The Bletcheley Circle"--a detective story with four women tracking down a terrible murderer using the code-breaking skills and all that they practiced at Bletcheley House 10 years ago during WWll. ( I mean, the women are now ten years older than they were when they met and worked during WWll.)
The knitwear was mentioned by the costume designer in a post-show bit, and said how interesting it was to work with the muted colors and different personalities of the women.
