A few days late for the crafting on yarn along but that's how I roll...
Finished up sweater #1 and realized the pretty lace pattern on the bottom gets swallowed up in this particular yarn. I decided to do sweater #2 in a slightly different pattern to avoid the lace bit at the end. I finished that one up this morning and it is now being blocked too. Just needs a few buttons sewn on and then both will be done. What happens after that? I wish I knew.
Bought the book Adopted for LIFE: The Priority of Adoption for Christian Families and Churches by Russell Moore a few weeks ago and positively devoured it. I am forcing Matt to read it now. ;-) I think this book ought to be a MUST READ for every pro-life person and, most especially, for every.single.Christian to read. As adopted sons and daughters, we know firsthand the great joy that adoption brings to the fatherless- as we once were. And as sons and daughters of a Heavenly Father and King, we have a perfect example to emulate. We, His church, ought to be at the forefront of the fight for the orphaned, widowed and unloved. Russell Moore gives a stirring call to all believers to not just love the idea of caring for orphans- but to actually be DOING it. And he encourages believers in all circumstances to do their part- and explains so wonderfully how everybody has a "part"- even if they are unable to adopt themselves.
Just really good.
