Well this Christmas was great! I wasn't alone. God is so good. It was so nice to have a family. Last year I didn't have my son with me or a husband and this year I had both. It was great! At church on Sunday my friend played a song she had wrote the year my ex-husband left me. That Sunday I had been sitting in church all alone with my ex a few rows ahead of me in church holding our four month old little boy and listened to the amazing song she had written. It was a lullaby that she wrote thinking of what Mary might sing to Jesus. I hadn't heard it since that Christmas until this year when she pulled it out again. I was all of the sudden overwhelmed by the memories and God's grace. My heart was filled with gratitude and my heart just worshiped the Lord for all He has done. I was standing there holding my son with his head on my shoulder just so thankful. God has restored. He has redeemed. I have so much to be thankful for.
So without further ado here are the Christmas projects I knit that I couldn't show until now. :)
Fetching from Knitty for my mom
My Dad's Hat. It is knit flat with shortrows sideways. It was fun to do.
Zeb, DH's hat. It is just a simple hat made with Malibrigo.
And another simple hat for Ben made with Cascade Baby Alpaca Chunky.
And then for Christmas I got lots of great knitting things from my parents.
I received the first three Stichionary's from Vogue Knitting, One-Skein Wonders, the Harmony Knitpicks Interchangeable set, the Harmony sock knitting set, The Knitting Glossary DVD by Elizabeth Zimmerman and Meg Swanson, and a Knitpicks chart keeper. I was spoiled!! :)
