The music in church this morning was awesome! Amazing Grace, old and new versions, How Great Thou Art - so beautiful to sing and think about. The lesson was on grace and God's grace to us. Grace is the one thing that sets Christianity apart from every other religion (C. S. Lewis). I am graced by my children- often I feel undeserving of having them. And the grace note is the extra - the friendship - I have with all three.
The girls and I had lunch together Saturday - Cay is showing off her new muff. She loves muffs, and this one is knit with from a pattern from www.knitty.com. The yarn is from my very favorite shop: The Shabby Sheep. It is very soft boucle - a matching hat is on the needles right now! The patterns on this website are amazing, fun and generally easy to follow. Here is a tip, for knitting or any time instructions need to be followed: I put the printed pattern inside a plastic notebook sleeve. Then any notes I need to make I do in erasable marker on the plastic.
A few years back, knitting became a simple craft that became a passion. From scarves to much more complicated patterns, knitting is a way to decompress after a day at work, a way to express my creative side, and a way to give part of myself through knitted gifts. I hope you enjoy this blog!
