On my needles...

Still reading Ann Voskamp's one thousand gifts. Still knitting the lacy scarf.



Still pondering this quote from p. 77:
I'm growing older. These children growing up. But time is not running out. This day is not a sieve, losing time. With each passing minute, each passing year, there's this deepening awareness that I am filling, gaining time. We stand on the brink of eternity.
But time is not running out. What a wonderful thought!

In other knitting...

I know I wasn't supposed to be working on anything other than the scarf, but I needed to finish the booties I shared last week. I'm happy to say that after adding ties to the ankles to help keep them on those little kicking baby feet, they are finished. These will be given to the moms of two sweet babes on Sunday.


So what are you reading or working on? Join me for Ginny's Yarn Along :)

    1. This one has been a long time coming for me, Karen. Lace truly takes patience and knitting time uninterrupted (at least that's my experience). Thanks for the sweet comment. :) ~Lisa

  3. Hmmm...that scarf pattern looks familiar. Is it the "Stimson Ave. Stole" from Berroco? I'm in the proccess of knitting that pattern, and it looks nearly identical. :)

    1. Hi Sarah! Actually, I found the pattern (Janet Russell's Leaf Lace Scarf) over on Knit Pick's website. I'd love to see the scarf you're working on -- let's compare at the kids' music lessons next week. :)

  4. Ohhh I just LOVe love love ALL your knitting going on. I am still working on ( yes! I have been able to knit! ((happy dance)) ) Luke's socks and I also did a detour project. I have really been needing new dish clothes and so I am crocheting some up with some of my stash. [o=

    I REALLY appreciate the quote. I need to look at my cup half full not half empty or time is filling rather than running out of time. LOVE IT!

    Blessings and ((HUGS))

    1. One can never have enough dish cloths! Seems they are in a constant state of needing to be replaced. :) Oh, and I know exactly what you mean about the quote. ~Lisa

  9. Those booties are ADORABLE! The scarf is lovely...ahhhhh! I am not knitting anything at the moment, but hope to start sometime soon. I like the photos at the top of your blog...those wouldn't be lavender soaps at the end, would they? Any available? Those are my favs :-D The chamomile soap was wonderful, btw...it was lovingly used up and is now a delightful memory! Let me know if/when lavenders are available!

    Blessings,
    Lori

  10. That quote is beautiful. I really think that if we can get eternity into our present thinking it will make all the difference in how we live today.

    Your booties are amazing. You are such a beautiful knitter...

    Blessings, Debbie

  11. Ah, yes, love that quote.

    I cannot wait until I am received into heaven.

    What a glorious day that will be.

    Meanwhile, we ponder and wait. And knit...

  12. What else does one do while knitting other than ponder? (besides doing one's best to follow a pattern and not make any mistakes...)

    A glorious day, indeed!

  13. Oh Lisa...they are just so beautiful!

    I don't feel any urgency in my life. Instead, I am gaining because everything that I teach my children continues on in them.

    Be blessed my friend,
    m.
