Let us put by some hour of every day for holy things...

I will not doubt, though all my ships at sea
Come drifting home with broken masts and sails.
I will believe the Hand which never fails,
From seeming evil, worketh good for me.
And though I weep because those sails are tattered,
Still will I cry, while my best hopes lie shattered:
I trust in Thee.
--Ann Kimmel

Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines, the labor of the olive shall fail and the fields shall yield no meat, the flock shall be cut off from the fold and there shall be no herd in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation. Habakkuk 3:17-18

The Craftsy Shawl Project...Sigh...

My, this blog is either feast or famine of late--no posts for days on end, or several all bunched together. Oh, well!

This one is quick, I promise. I just wanted to report I've managed to undo my ghastly tangle and have gotten the shawl up and knitting again. It has taken me a good ten days to work up to it, and the repair took well over an hour with my glasses off, hunched over the work, rethreading kabillions of miniscule stitches onto these impossibly slender needles. I'm positively cross-eyed at this point!

BUT... I didn't bail out and quit, which I was sorely tempted to do. That's the beauty of having a blog like this. It keeps me from taking the easy route and shames me into doing what I should!

Some of the other workshop members have posted photos of their lovely completed shawls. Here's one here, so you can see what it is I'm supposed to be making:


I am definitely bringing up the rear in this workshop, but at least I'm still staggering along.
