I don't always read the Sunday comics but today it was the first section of the paper that I read and I'm so glad. "Family Circus" was great!.....
Billy said... "Know what? My pants were made in Thailand, and my shirt was made in Mexico. I bet we don't have any clothes made in the U.S." His sister said, "Wrong, Billy! I know this sweater was made in this country 'cause I watched Grandma knit it!".
Wow! That's so cool! Another great reason to knit! As if there weren't enough great reasons already!
It seems like there isn't much of anything in stores these days that's made anywhere but China, Thailand, Indonesia, Mexico, etc. I'm happy for those people to have jobs but what about jobs here? I've been hearing of more and more mills and factories closing in America...some that had been existence for generations...and production of fabrics and other goods are now being done in China. As a result, I wonder if a lot of skills will be lost in America. That's a sad and scary thought. It's exciting when I find something that's been made here in America or somewhere like Canada or Europe. I hope we don't lose that completely.
I think I'll go do some knitting now and make something in the U.S.A.!!! :-)
