Wear your cardigans for World Kindness Day article in Tribune Review by Shirley McMarlin and remember Mr. Fred Rogers who exhibited acts of kindness as a way of life. And wore cardigan sweaters on his television show.
Here’s what Mr. Rogers said about his mother making his sweaters.
“She makes sweaters for many different people,” he told the camera, after showing a picture of his mom and pointing out the intricate details in each piece. “But, that’s one of the ways that she has of saying that she loves somebody.” from article by Samantha Sutton In Style Magazine
