Standard

Soldier[1] This handsome young man appeared in our shop yesterday to show off his hat.

He knit it himself.

In Iraq.

Pick your jaw up off the floor and give Sargeant Sorich a virtual standing ovation.  And while you're at it, applaud the rest of his knitting group.

Knittinginiraq You can read all about it at Handmade by Mother - these soldiers and their knitting is a wonderful story and we are thrilled that we can now see them safe and sound here at home.

John – thanks for your service, being a Needlework Unlimited customer and for coming in to share your story.  Try to make it to a Men's Knitting Night  sometime!
