Yarn Along – Easily Distracted


On Wednesday’s knitters go to Ginny’s to 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.

I have 3 sections to ruffle.

March 5 004 What can I say. . .
when an unfaithful knitter/crocheter/quilter
finds a new pattern . . .
She just has to try it!

I haven’t used Homespun for a while because it doesn’t showcase the stitches I’ve worked so hard to make. but I have these 8 skeins purchased for another circle afghan that were pouting in the stash shed because they were being ignored and I had to try a new to me pattern. (Actually I tried the pattern in dishcloth cotton{it was close} and THE pattern begged to be crocheted up right now!) So this new project is really not my fault, is it?

Pattern – Corner to Corner Throw, Red Heart pattern, LW1595 by Catherine Watson.
The pattern starts with one shell in the corner grows diagonally to half size;
then decreases back to one shell, then add a shell/scalloped edge.

Listening to the last book in the Shepherd’s Heart, Spring Meadow Sanctuary, Lynnette Bonner, light and easy listening.

I’m linking my post with Ginny and her Yarn Along.

Today’s thought – The Whole Duty of Man

farmer's tan 8-17-11Evidence of hours of working in the sun by the Farmer.

Good Morning

Ecclesiastes 12:13-14
All has been heard; the end of the matter is: Fear God [revere and worship Him, knowing that He is] and keep His commandments, for this is the whole of man [the full, original purpose of his creation, the object of God’s providence, the root of character, the foundation of all happiness, the adjustment to all inharmonious circumstances and conditions under the sun] and the whole [duty] for every man.
14 For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it is good or evil. Amplified Bible

The Old Man’s Comforts
and how He gained them.

You are old, Father William, the young man cried,
The few locks which are left you are grey;
You are hale, Father William, a hearty old man,
Now tell me the reason I pray.

In the days of my youth, Father William replied,
I remember’d that youth would fly fast,
And abused not my health and my vigour at first
That I never might need them at last.

You are old, Father William, the young man cried,
And pleasures with youth pass away,
And yet you lament not the days that are gone,
Now tell me the reason I pray.

In the days of my youth, Father William replied,
I remember’d that youth could not last;
I thought of the future whatever I did,
That I never might grieve for the past.

You are old, Father William, the young man cried,
And life must be hastening away;
You are chearful, and love to converse upon death!
Now tell me the reason I pray.

I am chearful, young man, Father William replied,
Let the cause thy attention engage;
In the days of my youth I remember’d my God!
And He hath not forgotten my age.
Robert Southey.

Duty first . . . Today
with my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
