[Miss de Winton (or deWinton) had set up the War Clothing Depot in Brecon, as described in an earlier post. Here, she is coming over as a bit dictatorial. "I'm going away for 2 weeks, but you must all keep working hard." And that is the shortest and most unhelpful pattern for socks I have ever seen. It is only any use to someone who already knows how to knit socks, and I'm not sure it makes much sense even then.]
