March 20th, Tribute to Fred Rogers

On March 20th, Fred Rogers (who died of cancer 5 years ago) would have turned 80. One of the activities to honor his memory is to wear a sweater on that day.

As a knitter I support the wearing of sweaters any day, but I would like to encourage people to make sweaters. You might not get a whole sweater done in 20 days, but you could get it started. It could be a sweater for you, a friend or a stranger. Fred always stressed the importance of being kind and sharing and that is an excellent way to honor his memory.
