One day at a time. One foot in front of the other. Remember to breath. Sometimes that's all we can do. That is all we are asked to do.

I have made several prayer shawls over the years. But these are prayer socks. For someone who is putting one foot in front of the other. Stepping out in faith.

And this is a happy knit---another new baby has arrived. I just counted today. I have made 43 baby hats in the last few years. My own grandchildren have gotten several each, but many, many have been gifts. They have been sent all over the country. What a fun way to welcome new babies.
I find I knit when times are hard and when times are happy. The rhythm of the needles soothes me. The focus on the pattern keeps my mind in gear. I'm knitting love and prayers into each stitch. It's good for me. It's good for the one I'm knitting for.
