Once again, the pattern, Estelle, is from my old standby, Quick Knit Keepsakes. Another simple pattern, easy to knit and talk and watch tv.
Our church's new knitting ministry, Knitogether, had its first meeting on Sunday, and I was so pleased with the turnout - nine ladies came! (It's a small church.) A few of those were people I did not know were knitters/crocheters. We have both experienced and new crafters, too. We'll be meeting once a month, for encouragement and guidance, and some months we'll go worship at the nursing home where the blankets will be gifted, instead of hanging out and knitting.
This is our verse:
Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful; and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near.
