A Lighter Weight

“In a large house there are articles not only of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay; some are for special purposes and some for common use.  Those who cleanse themselves from the latter will be instruments for special purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work.” I…

In the Shadow

Participating in a dialogue about race and inequity is one of the hardest things a community can do. Understatement aside, the effort it takes to just get everyone in the same room can be a monumental effort. Positive conversations with dominant cultured individuals about racism in America are a new occurrence for me. Before marrying…

 Fauna

Spring is here. The warm air stirs everything up into a frenzy and suddenly the honeysuckles are about to grow into your window! Everything is covered in ivy; all the flora are racing to multiply, all the fauna straining to grow higher faster. Spring speeds everything up. I’ve been taking my sweet time knitting this…

The Mountains Are Calling

Picture heavy post! Knitting photos near the bottom! Last week Jonathan and I went on our one year anniversary trip! We decided to take advantage of our anniversary’s proximity to Labor Day and delay our trip until September. Thursday night, after work, we jumped in the car and drove west as long as we could…

Camino Bubbles- Fire and Ice

I have a lace addiction. Truly. I believe most of my stash is made up of lace and fingering weight yarn. I have a sweater’s worth or two of worsted weight yarn, but if you close your eyes and take a random draw from my stash you’ll most likely pull out a 500yd skein of…

Miller’s Daughter

Well, we are well into the New Year and life is already (or rather still is) pretty chaotic. We’ve jumped head first into moving to Kansas City for Jon’s new job and he’s been commuting back and forth for the past few weeks! In the meantime, I’ve been boxing up our life and saying goodbye…

Socky Comfort

Life is good tonight. I’m sitting here with a plate of leftover snacks from another successful knitting ministry meeting. Tonight’s focus was community building and fellowship. Less of a Bible study lesson than I would like, but there was much laughter and getting to know one another, which is incredibly important when forming a small…

YAW

Sigh…yarn lust is a terrible beast. It keeps me up at night. When it gets really bad I dream about the yarn I want. When I visit the yarn shop, I touch the same yarn over and over, with puppy dog eyes. Its really tragic. Jon and I agreed that my stash of yarn has…

July What? Anthea Top

What day is it? The 5th, right? This post is totally happening in a timely manner and this tank top was knit two months ago last week. I’m great at blogging. Shush. This July I felt especially festive and was determined to cook and dress for the occasion. Italian herb bread, bacon and asparagus quiche,…
