" Do you not know?
Have you not heard???

The LORD is the everlasting GOD,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.

He will not grow tired or weary,
and His understanding no one can fathom.
He gives strength to the weary,
and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint." Isaiah 40:28-31

"The Sovereign LORD has given me an instructed tongue, to know the word that sustains the weary.
He wakens me morning by morning, wakens my ear to listen like one being taught." Isaish 50:4

First post of 2010

I stayed up until around 1:30 a.m., seeing in the new decade, knitting.
Slept late, and woke to the sun shining beautifully.

Got a load of laundry done and hanging out on the line......hope it doesn't freeze ! Baby, it's cold outside !

The rest of the day is shaping up to be a lazy one......I can't baste the white quilt, as I have some kind of little cut on the end of my right ring finger, and it keeps getting re-opened everytime I bang it on something........I don't even know where it came from. But I won't take a chance on it ruining the white fabric, so instead I'll just keep working on this new scarf I'm making.

I've found that as much as I love working with good quality wool, the scarves and hats really make my head and neck itch ! So I went downtown and bought myself a super skein of good ol' Red Heart, and started myself a Fisherman's Rib scarf based on the demo seen here. Aren't those the fattest ribbed stitches you've ever seen........it feels so good ! She didn't give any instructions, so I'm just winging the beginning and edges.

China just seemed like the perfect backdrop for a quick photo.......I moved things around in the computer room, and now she has a sunny window to lie in all day. She rarely comes out of here anymore, but she is very grateful and lets me know it. So, she tolerates my photographic efforts.
Gonna get back to knitting now........ta ta !


  1. ugh, i have bled on a quilt before and it is no good!!! hope your finger feels better. the scarf is looking great. happy new years to you

  2. Happy New Year wishes coming your way! Your knitting looks lovely...red is so cheerful I think.

  3. Love the scarf, I'd love to squeeze it, it looks thick and squishy. You kitty is darling. My dogs like to lie in the sun too, but this time of year we rarely see it.
