Yop 40 Update and a word (or three) about Hope
This will be a short update as I am not feeling so great today.
I did finish the fourth quadrant of my blanket, so I have to block and sew it together and then figure out how to knit the border on directly.
I got caught up in some stash busting and made these two cutie pies for a friend of mine who had given me the pattern.
And I needed to finish this which I have been wearing pretty much non stop (although my husband asked me not to wear it when next we cross the border - duh):
Last night I wound the hemp I bought at Fibres West so I can start another zodiac potholder (or two).
I have begun a second square of the Iona blanket, but the teddies kinda got in the way. Once I finish this one the next will be in a different colourway (which means I have more yarn to wind).
Currently I only have two wips, so of course I must cast-on those pot-holders tout de suite!
Also the weather is finally sunny so I think today I will be washing some fleece - stay tuned.
On a personal note, I walked by a gentlemen both coming and going to the library and he was engrossed in a serious conversation about someone named Josh.
As I walked by him the second time he was saying "Hope is Hope". Then he said it again and followed it with "Hebrews 20:11 - look it up."
I took that as a sign and went home to look up the reference. There is no Chapter 20 in Hebrews, so I looked up 11:20.
"By faith Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau concerning things to come."
It was about Faith. The gist being the Faith is Hope. At least that is what I am taking from it.
I think it was a message God wanted me to hear.
Faith is Hope.
I had forgotten that.
