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.

Blogging about knitting since 2004.


What's going on now?

To sum up: husband has a job after two layoffs in 2013. Husband has been laid off for the fourth time in two years due to companies cancelling projects. I have two kids under the age of 5, we just moved in with my mother in law and I think I'm starting to get my mojo back. I've had writer's block for weeks.
