Thanksgiving is over and even though we lighted our first Advent candle on Sunday, and the Christmas tree is up and the decorating way on its way, the event that truly welcomes Christmas celebration into our family with full intensity is attending the annual performance of Handel's Messiah given by the local oratorio society/orchestra, which we attended last night. It was nothing less than glorious.
But with the balmy days of late and the carpet of leaves left underfoot, a source of confusion is created in my mind as we are on the brink of flipping our calendars to December.
Nevertheless, I knit on, and I read books about godly woman.
Women I want to emulate in their quest to know God, to serve Jesus, and to obey the voice of the Holy Spirit.
These particular socks I am presently knitting, I named the Merry-Go-Round Socks; the color of fir and pine trees against clear blue skies with the golden glow of sunny days... yes, Merry, a word we hear quite often during this season... and the constant going round and round on the ribbing and knitting that sock knitting certainly affords. I am thinking I will do an afterthought heel on this pair of socks.
I have finished the Fair Isle sweater mentioned a while back. You may read about it if you like on ravelry, or on my past post.
And on this last day of November I am thankful to be able to join Ginny's Yarn Along.
