have you ever been in the yarn shop .... just wandering and looking and taking it all it ... meandering through the beautiful textures and rich colors - - the patterns that are displayed to inspire - - the new gadgets, and needles and bags to hold all the treasures ..... when all of a sudden, BAM! out of nowhere a skein of yarn jumps into your basket - - it calls your name and you simply submit! Not sure What you're going to do with it, but fully confident that it was love at 1st site ... mutual admiration and within the next 24 hours you'll be wearing this treausure, in some shape, form or fashion!
You rush home and begin knitting; letting the yarn inspire the needles ... stitches are flying and your heart's content .... you've found the pattern and it's just going to be amazing!!!! knitting along, you encounter your 1st knitting ‘trick’ …. K2tog. Simple, right? Knit 2 stitches together to create 1 single stitch, and in so doing, you have made a ‘decrease’ in the stitch count and are on your way to revealing the masterpiece of a pattern. You knit a few more stitches past the center of your pattern and you find another K2tog, which you comply with, and just keep going ….. however, did you know that there is more than one way to decrease?
John 3:30 is a perfect Knit So Simple verse …. He must Increase; I must decrease!
