Yarn for my Scarf Project!

Jesus knew that the Father had put all things under His power,
and that He had come from God and was returning to God;
so He got up from the meal , took off His outer clothing,
and wrapped a towel around His waist, after that,
He poured water into a basin and began to wash His disciples feet,
drying them with the towel that was wrapped around Him.
John 13:3-5
