Inside My Knitting Bag
Cast on 35 stitches.
Row 1: (WS) *P2, k1, p7, k1; rep from * to last 2 sts, p2.
Row 2: (RS) *K2, p1, ssk, (yo, k1) 3 times, yo, k2tog, p1; rep from * to last 2 sts, k2.
Row 3: *P2, k1, p9, k1; rep from * to last 2 sts, p2.
Row 4: *k2, p1, ssk, k5, k2tog, k1; rep from * to last 2 sts, k2.
Repeat Rows 1 - 4 for pattern.
* Secret tip i learned; on the SSK, slip 1 KNITwise, slip the next 1 PURLwise and THEN knit them together. this little "tweak" in your habit will help the stitch lay smoother!
This traveling scarf has been a fun option ... to "semi-specify" colors and see how everyone interprets that request ... to see the blending of choices, to acknolwedge that there really are some colors that just simply don't need to sit next to each other in order to showcase themselves!
Choices... Designs... When left up to me i. don't always choose wisely if I don't have the "BIG" picture in mind.. Which is perhaps the eXACT reason that God longs to be the Potter to the clay of my heart. How much easier is everything when I submit.. Willingly...
Submission doesn't have to mean resignation.. Or defeat ... Or be viewed as Anything other than being smart enough to recognize who has the smartest master plan .. And it seldom is me, on purpose!
Yet you, LORD, are our Father.
We are the clay, you are the potter;
we are all the work of your hand. ISA. 64:8
My heart says of you, “Seek his face!”
Your face, LORD, I will seek. Ps. 27:8
