Our town holds a Memorial Day Parade and Service each year. It was cold enough to wear my red/white/blue scarf today.
Our Friend and Vietnam Vet, Larry is partaking in a Memorial Day service for a friend of his who died in the war. Now, years after Vietnam, his family was notified that a TOOTH that belonged to their soldier was recovered in Vietnam.
The tooth has been accompanied by US soldiers to his hometown. This is all that family has of his body. How wonderful that he is being honored with this tiny fragment of his body, in memory of his soul.
There is some knitting going on during the Holiday weekend. The sock was not to be.
I must have ripped it back to the cuff 5 times trying to get the pattern I wanted right.
Then it hit me. This yarn needed to be a shawl.... after all.
NO wonder it was not co-operating with me. Mizzle is the name of the pattern, Free on Ravelry . I'm knitting and I'm loving it.
What's up on your Memorial Day?
