Quote from my readings. . .

The life of prayer and communion with Jesus must be at the center. One’s whole ministry arose from it.

Chapter 18: “Zingst and Finkenwalde,” Preaching the Word from Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy by Eric Metaxas (Thomas Nelson, April 2010, ebook)

Working on Winter Flame. . .


 …so I ran into my friend Sujin this weekend, and realized I’ve become a true knitter — I have several WIPs going at any given time.  Right now, that means another coffee cozy for my BFF, my first set of mittens, a baby blanket that includes the skyline of Chicago, and two scarves for myself. I’ve set aside the Peaks & Valleys scarf, as it takes more patience and the color isn’t exciting me right now.  So that means I’ve been focusing on Winter Flame, which I’m making with Knit Picks’ Comfy Worsted Fairy Tale yarn.  The color is one that I keep buying — I also own similar colors in Vanna’s Choice, LB Collection Angora Merino, and Knit Picks Wool of the Andes.  I stopped myself from buying some more in the S&B Nation yarn, but there is something about these wine colors that keep calling to me.  Go figure — I’m sure it will be something else soon enough! In the meantime, here’s my progress on the Winter Flame scarf. Argh, it really does need a lifeline after my next repeat so I don’t have to repeat too much at some point when I start to get tired and make mistakes (I can acknowledge that I tend to knit past my exhaustion point!)
