Yarn Along, May 9, Ready to Block


In checking my finished projects I saw that I didn’t share this shawl after I finished it. Maybe because, the cat climbed in the cubbie and slept on it. So I put it where he couldn’t get to it and I forgot about it  I’m in the season of forgetfulness.

Last week Alpaca Sox Shawl became a finished object! I finally decided no picots and simple edge with beads. I like it.  Now to get both blocked pretty.

Young Holden shawl on size 6 needles was looking small so frogged back and now knitting on 8’s, much better. 139 stitches on the needle, 195 stitches then I get to start the lace work.

I just finished reading ‘Empty House’ by Rosamund Pilcher, all of her’s are favorites.

Join with me to see what’s on other’s needles with Ginny.

Wordless Wednesday — Cat Door?

May 9, Today’s thought — Peace

This one grows on the east side of Bro. Bob’s house.

Good Morning,

In Christ Alone, My Hope Is Found
He Is My Light, My Strength, My Song
This Cornerstone, This Solid Ground
Firm Through The Fiercest Drought And Storm
What Heights Of Love, What Depths Of Peace
When Fears Are Stilled, When Strivings Cease
My Comforter, My All-in-all
Here In The Love Of Christ I Stand

There In The Ground His Body Lay
Light Of The World By Darkness Slain
Then Bursting Forth In Glorious Day
Up From The Grave He Rose Again
And As He Stands In Victory
Sin’s Curse Has Lost Its Grip On Me
For I Am His And He Is Mine
Bought With The Precious Blood Of Christ

No Guilt In Life, No Fear In Death
This Is The Power Of Christ In Me
From Life’s First Cry To Final Breath
Jesus Commands My Destiny
No Power Of Hell, No Scheme Of Man
Can Ever Pluck Me From His Hand
Till He Returns Or Calls Me Home
Here In The Power Of Christ I’ll Stand
Till He Returns Or Calls Me Home
Here In The Power Of Christ I’ll Stand
Here In The Power Of Christ I’ll Stand


John 14:27  Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

Trust God for your day. . . Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
