Inside My Knitting Bag

Thursday seems like a good day to make assessments ... to share progress, to check and see what i need for the weekend, to just schedule a 'REVIEW SESSION' for things.  You can do that, you know!  Grab your daytimer if need be, and pencil in write it in Pen so that nothing will override a few minutes to get a more accurate picture of Life ... as it stands as this brief moment!

Peaking in my Knitting Bag will show . . .

*New copies of Interweave Knits and Interweave Crochet (i LOVE these magazines for the great and informative articles within each one.  There are amazing pictures and Step-by-Step "How-to's" that make them essential for a good Reference Section among your knitting books!   That's my story and i'm sticking with it!)

 * 2 skeins of Red Heart Pomp-a-Doodle, already made into a fun scarf ... pictures will be added soon!            

* 3 skeins of Lion Brand Yarn Alpine Wool for a scarf for Bubba .... watch for this one to be added to the New Stitch Knitch Tab soon!

*  3 skeins of this amazing purple in hopes of turning it into a GIANT Cable scarf planned for March!

* New skein of cotton for some simple washcloths for my kitchen redo!

* Squeeze Me scarf finished (and being worn today!)

* Gauge swatches done for our 1st toddler hat to go into the AuPair Project basket!

* New shipment of extra cables for my Denise Interchangeable Needles!  (these are one of the "must haves" for your knitting bag!  Every size your need, always ready to go ... and with extra cables you could knit a cover for your car if you were so inclined!)

*  New PomPom makers from Clover!  these little gadgets are SO MUCH FUN!  (clearly it doesn't take much to keep me amused when it comes to new Knitting Toys!   and having coupons and teacher discounts certainly sweetens the deal!)

Looking back on things i would say it's been a productive week ... but did i mention we also had 2 snow days! So yes, there was some extra time to just sit and knit and ponder on all the blessings of each day ... for the most part i was thankful time and again for HEAT and WARMTH and SHELTER!  and i repeatedly found myself Thanking the Lord for those things that i usually take for granted!  Looking at my list of things done this week should also include memorizing my Fruit of the Spirit passage - Gal. 5:22-23 .. and spending time on each of the Fruit within those verses ... much to learn ... even MORE to apply!  And based on these ponderings i realize and confess that my personal/spiritual To Do list will never be completely checked off, but how sweet to know that He loves me as I am, sees my potential and worth and was willing to give His life so that i one day would share eternal life with Him!

  This is the day the Lord has made.  I will rejoice and be glad in it!
ps. 118:24
