Yarn Along, Knitting on and on, Love IT!

On Wednesday’s knitters go to Ginny’s and Tami’s and share all the wonderful projects being worked on, finished, frogged, cried over, and learned from. they also tell what they are reading and a little of the storyline or provoking thoughts. I think it is great. So many books, knitting ideas and hints on how to make knitting more enjoyable.

This week, true ( can’t believe it) to my determination to finish shawls before starting more shawls. I FINISHED TWO! Pictures on Friday.

I am still knitting on and on and on and loving it.

Winter shawl is growing point by point the ruffle edging is knit first. I’ve found using a double pointed needle makes for easier knitting the back and forth short rows.

Noro is back. Remember, I ran out of beads doing the bind off. All frogged back, purchased complementary beads and binding off again. Hopefully this one will be finished by Friday, too.
Just a close up of the edging.

Muted Jazz is growing. I’ll start taking her with me again, now that Hope’s is finished. It is a great take a long and feels wonderful sliding through my fingers.

I’m reading ‘The Body Farm” by Patricia Cornwell. I like her stories, but would clean up Marino’s mouth, if I were writing it.

September 12, Today’s thought – Abraham

No more until next year. 😦

Good Morning

And so, after he had patiently endured,
he obtained the promise. Hebrews 6:15

Abraham was long tried,
but he was richly rewarded.
The Lord tried him by delaying to fulfill His promise.
Satan tried him by temptation;
men tried him by jealousy, distrust, and opposition;
Sarah tried him by her peevishness.
But he patiently endured.
He did not question God’s veracity,
nor limit His power,
nor doubt his faithfulness,
nor grieve His love;
but he bowed to Divine Sovereignty,
submitted to Infinite Wisdom,
and was silent under delays,
waiting the Lord’s time.
And so,
having patiently endured,
he obtained the promise.

God’s promises cannot fail of their accomplishment. Patient waiters cannot be disappointed. Believing expectation shall be realized.

Beloved, Abraham’s conduct condemns a hasty spirit,
reproves a murmuring one,
commends a patient one,
and encourages quiet submission to God’s will and way.
Remember, Abraham was tried;
he waited patiently;
he received the promise,
and was satisfied.
Imitate his example,
and you will share the same blessing. Selected.

And so it was that he [Abraham],
having waited long and endured patiently,
realized and obtained
[in the birth of Isaac as a pledge of what was to come]
what God had promised him.
Hebrews 6:15 Amplified Bible

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