Trust Yourself.

So many cases prove that when you want something bad enough
good things can happen.

It takes a lot of work but what else have you got to do right??

Stories like this really make you feel for people.
I hope this young man makes it in life.

A child on the run from people with authority, rights, licenses, duty, trust etc...
to take care of him, to live in the streets.

Makes you wonder.

How many good places can you leave a child knowing he'd be safe but can't because the home has no license to keep a child, and yet here, with a license
you have authority to keep children and not give them half of what they need and even abuse.

I made these just for the fun of it
I found I like the seed stitch
It's easy just knit purl and feels and looks nice.
These are called soakers you wear over a diaper.
It is basically a triangle which you fold like a diaper and sew the waist
and then fold up the bottom and sew from the waist down 4 inches.
leaving holes for the legs.
Then you just make a draw string to keep them from falling down
or if you like you can sew in an elastic band.
Draw string is easier and cheaper.Would be good to make from material too.
It came from a vintage pattern.
Amazing what people came up with .
I guess they are a bit too big for a new born but for a one and two year old they'd be fine.
but not today. lol
A little seed stitch top would go nice with them to keep the chest warm too.
Not much else going on.
Coffee, dull wet weather.
Maybe we will go somewhere and maybe not
Let you know later .

yes .Wish north korea would get her act together and feed her people

Such a sad story about his young life. It's shocking that children still live like that in a "developed" country like South Korea.

Adam -I don't know how he escaped such a hard regime where young men have to join the army Maybe things changed now but now again they have North Korea to worry about.

Sandy yes but inspiring.
We have people (asian old ladies) walking around collecting peoples bottles on garbage day from recycling containers.
When asked why, they point to their mercedes and say: Thats why. lol
