General Conference! And Progress on the Flax Baby Sweater

Semi Annual General Conference of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints  will be this morning’s session (11 am to 1 pm central time) and this afternoon’s session (3 pm to 5 pm central time) and tomorrow morning and afternoon sessions will be at the same times as today’s.  I love these weekend semi annual conferences, they are so uplifting and bring much peace.  Tho I always look forward to this, we can especially use peace and comfort right now.

Baby Flax sweater 3b  I didn’t realize when I bought this yarn, it would be in stripes, maybe because I didn’t look at the color name, just thought the pink shades would be perfect for a little girl’s sweater.  I was stunned at the way this color has turned out.  The color name is Pink Stripe, well duh!  I love the color blocking on a baby sweater because of it’s smaller diameter!  I will probably have to do a bit of color management and weaving in ends on the sleeves, but it will be well worth it. :).  I bought two skeins because this is worsted weight and only has 186 yards per 4 ozs and I’m sure I will need 200 and something yards especially doing color management.  I’m knitting this in a 6 to 12 months size because her baby is due in May and I wanted the baby to be able to wear it this coming winter.  Hope it will be well loved.  Plus it will be nice knitting during the conference sessions!

Hope everyone is staying safe and enjoying knitting, or art or whatever you are doing to keep busy and be comforted.

General Conference – Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

General Conference was wonderful yesterday and I am waiting for it to start today for the peace and instruction it gives.  For both days, it is 11:00am to 1:00pm and 3:00pm to 5:00pm central time USA.  If you missed these times and would like to see it, you can always go view it at the link where they will be available to be viewed.

Two times a year we have General Conference where our Prophet and Apostles and other Church leaders speak to us.   I look forward to this time in April and October.

Merry Christmas – 2018

8 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.

9 And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,

14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will to men.

15 And it came to pass, the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.

16 And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger. (St. Luke 2:8-16)

May you and your families have a very blessed Christmas Day.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving DayHope everyone is having a Happy Thanksgiving Day.  My thoughts and prayers are going out to those who suffered devastating losses in the California fires :(, and all those who had no family to celebrate with.   My heart is breaking for them.

I may not have much according to the world, but I have enough.  I have my faith, my family, a warm place to live, food on my table and clothes on my back.  I even have some things that I wanted, a spinning wheel (that was given to me – could not afford to buy one), my knitting needles, some yarn to knit and fiber to spin, a computer (a gift from my dad).  I have an older car that allows me to get around in town and a working sewing machine I’ve had for about 20 years, that allows me to do some sewing (repairs and gifts).  I can not complain because there are others who have less.  I’m grateful for the things the Lord has provided for me.  I wasn’t always grateful because I saw the things others had, but as I saw the lack and needs of others who had less than I did,  I began thanking our Father in Heaven for those things I had neglected to recognize as blessings in my life.  It has given me a sense of peace and comfort to see and recognize all the Lord has blessed me with.  I hope you find things to be grateful for too even tho there is so much strife and drama in the world, there are things in our lives that are blessings and tender mercies.  Sharing what we have is a blessing to others, not only lifting them but us as well.  I hope we can all find ways to bless others’ lives.

Merry Christmas 2016
