The sock is named after: Rear Admiral Grace Murray Hopper.
"It's easier to ask forgiveness than it is to get permission"
"A ship in a harbor is safe, but that is not what a ship is built for." - Rear Admiral Grace Murray Hopper
While she was working on a Mark II Computer at Harvard for the Navy her associate found a moth stuck in a relay impeding operation, where she stated that they were “debugging” the system. She brought the term computer bug into popularity & the term is still attributed to the Admiral.
1996 – The USS Hopper (DDG-70) was launched. It was nicknamed The Amazing Grace, it is on a very short list of U.S. military vessels named after women

|item: Mia's Market Bag
pattern: My own design, based on an interpretation of a pattern that I saw in Nordic Knitting 2
content: 3 hanks of 2nd Chance Yarn
time: 4 hours
If you need a last minute gift and have a couple of hours today, this bag is totally doable in about 4 hours. The bag is so easy, here are just some basic instructions to get you on the right track.
1) Knit 4 rectangles that are 6 inches wide by 20 inches long. (I knitted one of the rectangles with several rows of purls and bobbles to create random stripes.)
2) The base of the bag is constructed as the diagram below.
3) Then sew the following sides together, making sure to sew from the base of the bag to the top since the edges will not be the same length. Side 2 to 3, 4 to 5, 6 to 7, 8 to 1
4) Knit two i-cord straps around 10 inches long and attach them to the points opposite each other.
