Yarn Along with a Pair of Pliers


“~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading,” Ginny, hostess of Yarn Along. I enjoy adding my little bit to this blog, mostly I love seeing all the different projects being knitted so beautifully it’s inspiring. It also adds to my library in Ravelry and my want list of yarns.

This week Summery Solstice was my knitting project. I finished Clue D. I added more beads, being inspired by other knitters’ pictures, but thought I had over done it. So I found the Farmers pliers, and removed 5 beads from each repeat (19). I have bead remnants on the deck, but I like the beading better. I split yarn on one removal, but was able to fix it.

I am knitting another shawl of the same pattern, I started Clue C yesterday. This yarn is waiting for its opportunity to become part of that shawl, Ivory Silky Solstice.

Wendy Knits’ mystery KAL has been fun. I’ve learned from watching others knit their shawls.  And I know these two projects will get finished, probably next week when I go care for MIL with little to distract me from knitting.

I’ve been listening to ‘Ice Cold’ by Tess Gerritson.


July 18, Today’s thoughts – Trust is His Provision

Looks like the Farmer has the birds eating ‘greens’ too!

Good Morning

He hath given meat unto them that fear him:
he will ever be mindful of his covenant.
Psalm 111:5

A missionary found herself without means, among a heathen people, far from an source of supplies. In her distress she claimed the promise of God that He would supply her need. She was also in poor health. From a businessman in another part of the country came several large boxes of Scotch oatmeal. She already had several tins of condensed milk, so with these two commodities she was obliged to sustain life for four long weeks.
As time went on, it seemed to agree with her better; and by the time the four weeks had passed, she felt in excellent health.
In relating the experience some time later to a company of people, which included a physician, she was asked more particularly of the nature of her former illness.
The physician said, “The Lord heard your prayer and supplied your need more truly than you realize. For the sickness from which you were suffering we physicians prescribe a four weeks’ diet of nothing but oatmeal gruel for our patients. The Lord prescribed it for you, and saw to it that that was all you took. It was the proper remedy.”
from Streams in the Desert 2

God is good, all the time.

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