A small bit of yarn (too small to be of use) remains from a wool, thrift-shop sweater. The sweater's yarn was used to make two helmet liners, one neck gator, and six hats. All were made for the troops.
Appropriately, the sixth hat came off of the needles yesterday, Memorial Day as I was watching the following documentary. My knitting is a small token of appreciation for the sacrifice the troops make every day to keep me safe. May God Bless them and their families.
If you have not seen this film, I recommend it. You will never look at Arlington National Cemetery the same again.
