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.
