history and mitts

 Forsooth, I will attempt not to show any more fingerless mitts... for a while anyway! Alas, my way                     of thinking was that someone "out there" might just enjoy this free pattern to knit, especially if mitts and cables are your present knitting fancy. They were knitted on straight needles and then sewn up. I decided not to add the thumb because I thought with the visual weight of the cabled mitts themselves, the knitted thumb would only add extra bulk.
These knits were included on a past yarnalong, but maybe some of you would appreciate seeing the finished product.

(My daughter, Rose graciously obliged to be my hand model wearing these mitts. )

If you are wanting a recommendation on a good book about church history, this is an excellent book by B.K. Kuniper.

I have discovered that having a greater knowledge of the history of the church has only increased by understanding of the people in history that He has used to write His story. It all unfolds as you study the Scriptures and time periods. This book is easy to read and a great handbook to pick up and get clarification at any time. I have read bits of it while sitting by the pool during a hot summer day, traveling in the car, before bedtime, or while grabbing a few moments with my feet resting on a footstool in the afternoon.
