Well, I want to thank you all for your prayers and project ideas. What awesome encouragement!

I decided to work on the Lion Brand Diagonal Baby Blanket. It’s pretty, and it makes for great public knitting.

I brought RAM’s felted socks to show and tell.

Felted socks in midnight blue.

Abigail taught the group how to do a tubular bind-off, and I was blessed with an actual hands-on demonstration of the technique by Judah and The Healing Teacher, who are both accomplished knitters. I consider myself blessed beyond measure to be surrounded by such wonderful women who not only share my love of knitting, but whose individual gifts and talents make their teaching a symphony. (Remember the deaf alien’s chorus of interpreters in Star Trek TNG? What was his name, Reva??? Now, I’ll have to go pull the DVD!)

When I came home, I got the greatest blessing of all: RAM made me dinner and did the laundry! This guy is totally awesome!

When I needed more yarn on Saturday to finish his socks, he ran into the store for me and not only came out with the correct color and dye lot, but also a new knitting bag.

Peace is sniffing the bag. Isn't she cute?

This is big enough to prepare for possibly any and every knitting emergency on the road. And it’s great for stash management at home, too.

Isn’t he awesome? He bought me this instead of buying an inflatable kayak or a CB. Now, I just need to teach him how to knit!

Hey, honey, if I buy you a CB and an inflatable kayak, and I promise to run every HAM net in the area for a year, AND talk on the CB *gasp*, will you learn how to knit?

I vote for the inflatable kayak. I know one will fit in my trunk and I see some nice places to meander with the camera and maybe some wool on the sticks. The socks look great! Like they were made for a king and it sounds like you live with one. God’s best and no less.

No promises good buddy but it might be a good way to get a cover to keep the cb and the ham radios dry as I paddle down the river. Maybe knitting skills would also help fix any leaks.

Comment by RAM

The socks look great! What a blessing to have knitting friends and RAM is super! Enjoy the new bag it looks very practical!

[...] you will empathize with them. I had an introduction to sock knitting by making a couple of pairs of felted booties, but then sock knitting went by the wayside because of projects I was, and am, working on for [...]
