A 'new' day.
This box full of beautiful hats and scarves was given to me yesterday to pass along to those in need.
And all this wonderful, fabulous yarn was given to me to continue my knitting for others! I am so humbled and thrilled!! THANK YOU, DORIS!! The Lord is near to all who call on Him, to all who call on Him in truth. Ps. 145:18
This is another great knitting related gift I received. A book from Nanette Blanchard called Stranded Color Knitting. Visit her blog: http://knittingincolor.blogspot.com Thank you, Amy! (sorry for the hassle!)
Teach me to do Your will, for You are my God. Ps. 143:10
In celebration of the New Year, this week's topic will be 'new'!
Learning something 'new'! With receiving 2 sock knitting books, I decided it is time for me to learn how to knit socks! Here is my first attempt! LOL! Yes, you are free to laugh! But it is fun. I can see many more in my future!

O Lord, what is man that You care for him, the son of man that You think of him? Man is like a breath; his days are like a fleeting shadow. Ps. 144:3-4
The angel said to them, "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; He is Christ the Lord." Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests." Luke 2:10-14
(the angel, Gabriel, talking to Mary) "Even Elizabeth your relative is going to heave a child in her old age, and she who was said to be barren is in her sixth month. For nothing is impossible with God." Luke 1:36-37
I need to tell everyone that has been so generous in their donations of yarn an extra HUGE THANK YOU!!!! so very, very much!! Several smaller donations of hats, mittens and scarves have already been sent out, but today the 'big' delivery is being made and I could not do this without all of YOU!!! (((HUGS)))!!!
Direct my footsteps according to Your word; let no sin rule over me. Ps. 119:133
Remember the Honey Sweater from a few weeks ago? Well, it is going to the frog pond. And here is what I am starting over with. New yarn. New pattern. This will be a top-down raglan with only a couple cables.
My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. Ps. 121:2
