Walk by Faith

"For we walk by faith, not by sight..." 2 Corinthians 5:10

Its time for weekly updates...does anyone have one? I think I will make the prize winning a bit more of a challange...you must post an update, either here or to me so that we can link to your blog, by Monday in order to be eligible to win a prize. How does that sound?

This weeks prize winner is....Judith!!! She is the only one who sent me an update last week, so she is the prize winner this week! Judy, you have won a very pretty skein of Schoeller Stahl Socka sock yarn, in variegated blues. Very generously donated by Carissa (thank you Carissa!) I will try to get a photo and put it up here sometime today! Judy helped us out in another way, behind the scenes, that I won't go into detail about, but I sure appreciate her willingness to "go with the flow"

For my own update, I must write about my very special FTP sister who has been so generous! I know who she is (Pamela) and not only has she blessed me almost daily with little notes of encouragement and prayers, but also just about daily gifts! All the way from England!!!! Here is a picture of the latest:

I also have the bookmark, chocolates, bandaids and a really neat candle that she has sent me. Ohhhh, I love the goodies Pamela and the fact that they come from England is kind of neat, too. Now, I need to measure my sock and send you some extra dimensions, don't I? I posted about Pamela's generosity on my own blog, too.

For my FTP recipient - I am just about ready to change yarns for her (Eve!) I won't show you all a photo, but I am just unhappy with it. Lynn from New York and I were discussing this last night and laughing together. Pamela and I have shared a laugh about it to. I may just knit Eve a sock with a different yarn, but send her this skein to see what she thinks - LOL!

Okay, I can't wait to hear all of your lovely updates ;D

Hugs and prayers to all ~

Well, I'm not a sock knitter! I have the beautiful yarn and toothpick-sized dps. I have done on my first stitches and distributed them onto the other four needs a total of eight times so far. The other day I actually knit & purled one whole row all the way around. After feeling on to of the world for this accomplishment I noticed the stitches were twisted and I couldn't untwist and I knew that a twist was a bad thing and then my bubble burst and...I'll take it off the needles again. :oP But this did teach me to be more careful and now I remember how to do the stitches. I'm actually enjoying this because now I feel confident I can knit a real pair of socks for myself when I finish these.

Go Molly!!! Go Molly!!! (that is my feeble attempt to cheer you on) It sounds like you have already gotten farther in your first sock attempt that many others do...so that's great.

Hugs, Cary
