To Knit in Comfort

"....everyone has to knit when they're here...
But not every person has to use yarn."
- Kate Jacobs

This time of year seems to lend so beautifully to closer knitting of friendships. Yesterday, a dear friend of mine, who also works miracles in yarn, gifted me in a remarkable way. I will not disclose the specifics of her gift because it was divinely inspired and belongs to our friendship, and now to my own promise to pass it along in the future... Her faith in listening and responding to the "still small voice" that spoke my name has given me the deepest of comfort. Today, I wrap myself up in the blessing of friendship, peace, comfort, and God's precious expression of love. 

To each of you... I knit you in my heart... and offer to you the wish for comfort (please pass it along).

And thank you to my dear knitting friend...

How lovely.

What a sweet post...thank you.

I'm knitting a throw right now. Not certain how it will turn out, because I am not a good knitter.
However, it keeps my fingers busy and gives me something to do in the late evenings.

Have a wonderful blessed day :)

His spirit lives on, and the influence is quietly with me as I write and share. This is my small offering that I pray will bless others and allow them to become Simply Inspired. warmly, karen -xok.
