The friend I visited on the weekend is an avid knitter, and has a Page A Day calendar stuffed with quirky knitting bits and bobs. I was leafing through it, intrigued because some of the points could just as easily apply to other crafts, when I discovered the claim that Mr Rogers (of ‘Mr Rogers Neighbourhood’ fame) wore those funny (my word) cardigans because his mother knit them. Me being me, I was skeptical, so I decided to check it out online and see what I could find. Turns out every single source I visited confirmed that yes, indeed, his mom knit his sweaters! What a good son!
And for me today, it truly is a beautiful day in the neighbourhood.
