a much commented- on cap


Isn't it a treat to knit up something and have people comment on how much they like it? Such was the case with this little Goblin Cap I knitted up this past week. Charlotte chose the colors of Galway wool, and the button was plucked from my grandmother's stash of old buttons.

Then Rose took her outside in the twirling snow where it was cold to take a picture.



Since Rose will be going to Haiti in late April, we are both reading Kisses from Katie.

"I have absolutely no desire to write a book about myself. 
This is a book about Christ."
~Katie Davis

When we surrender our lives to Christ it becomes more about Him and less about us. This book is about a young woman serving Christ unconditionally, absolutely, and daily in Uganda. The last time I can remember feeling similar emotions upon reading a true story of a person's remarkable life was The Shadow of the Almighty: Life and Testament of Jim Elliot by Elisabeth Elliot.

Joining Ginny this Wednesday, as I post my second post of the day. Joyously reporting the snow is coming down, just as "they" said it would!

I love the hat - the slouchy part of it, the colors (purple and green are my favorite combination). That sounds like such an interesting book!

I love the hat! So adorable!

And folks keep recommending that book to me. Maybe I'll give in. :-)

That *is* a very cute hat. The colors are perfect together! I hope you are staying warm and cozy.

Love the colours and the pattern! I will have to make that one! I wish there were two of me. One to do the fun stuff and one to do the cleaning. :o) Kisses from Katie is on my to read list. One of these days I will get ahold of it.

Blessings!

the 13th of October

Friday, the 13th, and at last the weather has turned cooler. I breathe deeply as I turn off the air-conditioner and slide open a few windows...
