FO Friday – A Hat and a Jar


In case you didn’t know FO stands for Finished Object. Tami lets finishers brag a little on her blog, by linking to her blog their pictures of FO’s. Click – to see finished fiber objects.

Friday afternoon I finished my KAL (knit along) hat; I was knitting with a group of nice ladies and Crissy, our fearless leader.

kittens with mittens gave me the idea of saving yarn scraps in a jar.

I did a lot of hat knitting in January and I frogged a pair of sox to remove worn heels, so my jar filled fast. (I’ll reknit the sox with shorter legs; I’ll like them better that way.)  I’m following my mother suggestion that I do a jar a month, instead of getting a larger jar and dumping all the scraps in one jar. I don’t expect February’s jar to be full. I have a baby blanket and two shawls that will be my focus this month.

Looking forward to more happy knitting in February!

February 2, Today’s thought – He That Goeth with Thee

Jan713 sky 9am 001The eastern sky at 9am one January morning,
a beautiful start of a new day.
“This is the day the Lord hath made, I will rejoice and be glad.”

Good Morning

Be strong and of a good courage,
fear not, nor be afraid of them;
for the Lord thy God ,
he it is that doth go with thee;
he will not fail thee,
nor forsake thee.
Deuteronomy 31:6

There is something very encouraging in the idea of a new start.
We should keep short accounts with God,
and live not only day by day but moment by moment.
This the staleness will disappear from life.
His mercies will be new new every morning,
and each experience will come to us like living waters
fresh from the fountains of his love and grace.
There is something most attractive in the idea of a new discovery,
an unexplored land,
a fresh advanced on new territory,
and new achievements.
How it lures the adventurer to the frigid zones,
and the dangerous tropics!
God has for each of us great and mighty things
which we know not,
and visions of truth and attainment which
“eye hath not seen nor ear heard,
neither hath it entered into the heart of man,
the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him.”
Let us press farther on!
Dr. A. B. Simpson

Press on with the Lord. . . Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
