Commute Knitting

I have decided that I will knit or crochet everyday on my way to and from work. I mentioned before, that I have a 50 minute train ride each way, and it's amazing how much Ican get done during that time.

I knitted each of my grandsons a winter cap. I still have to make the lining from the beige fleece (shown below). They should stay nice and warm in these caps.

I have also started the "Huckleberry Ascot". This is such a cute project. I think I first saw this on Adrienne's blog and it grabbed me. I should have this done by the end of the work week (which is Wednesday afternoon - YAY!!!).

My plan is to knit/crochet all fall and winter long. I hope to put a huge dent in my yarn stash.
Here are the yarns I hope to use during the month of December while riding on the train.

The red wool will be knitted and felted to make a bag.

The taupe baby bamboo is going to be an infant/toddler dress.

The blue demin suede will be baby mocassins (sp?).

The pink suede will be baby booties

The purple and grey cotton is for a girl's hat and scarf set.

The multi-colored yarn will be my first pair of socks.

Monday Meditation

And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching. Hebrews 10:24-25

We need each other now more than ever before. With so much turmoil in the world, we need to be able to go to each other for love and support. Keep in mind sometimes love means correction, and we should be able to get that from our brothers and sisters in Christ. I know there are some who will say coming together as a body of believers is not necessary. But that is so not true. We need to come together to encourage, exhort and reprove one another. We even need to provoke (urge, push, persuade) each other to do what's right. Often times a close relationship needs to be in place in order to do that king of encouraging. Go and do all that the Lord has commanded you.
