Wool hooked scarf - stars and stripes

This wool scarf was a kit I purchased a number of years ago from Nancy Miller, a 4th generation rug hooker and wonderful teacher.  I'm focusing on fiber this winter and thought I'd get back into the swing of things by completing something small.

As I hooked I couldn't help but think about the election and the patriotism being shown by so many Americans.  And it is patriotism whether one agrees with the view point or not.  

:love for and devotion to one's country is the definition of patriotism according to Merriam-Webster.

My hope is that every American today participates in one of the tenets of democracy by accepting the election results and extends their own hand and heart to yet another tenet:  compromise.

I know without even waiting for all the results that I didn't get everything I wanted.  Darn!  In some cases I'm sure it's not going to be easy, but I am tired of the rancor.  I know that if we work together we can accomplish far more positive than if we spend another four years trying to get credit for what's best for our citizens.


Your scarf looks great! I bet
