Memorial Day Knitting

vintageknitsoxposterThe Jets are flying overhead, the parades on Main Street, the pledges of allegiance. It's Memorial Day, time to remember the sacrifices our military has made for us past and present. For me, it's time to remember my grandfather, who served in the South Pacific in World War II. It's time to remember the Fogerty family who in my hometown lost their husband in son in Afghanistan a few weeks ago. It's time to honor those sacrifices, of human life and compaionship that people and their families make to fight for our country. It has me thinking how the knitting world acknowledges these folks and how we can use knitting to help our military and promote world peace.


Who are you remembering this Memorial Day? Please share your story in the comments.

What's going on now?

Miracles have happened and husbeast received and accepted a job offer at his dream company last week. He starts work soon. We are breathing sighs of relief and expecting great things ahead.

I'm knitting. I've been caring for my two sons, living at my MIL's house, volunteering at our local co-op preschool and gardening. Trying to find time to write and to redefine this blog to embrace my current reality.
