I'm linking up again for Yarn Along with Ginny at Small Things.
-I find crochet a little easier to transport than knitting so i've been taking my hook and a bit of stash with me to Dr's appointments, hockey practice etc etc and whipping up these little dish/face/duster cloths,
-Whilst house bound with sick kids last weekend I made myself a little crochet hat
- My shalom is coming along nice and slowly. I love this project, it's like having an old friend in the room that you don't have to keep making conversation with all the time, 'it's' good company, pleased to be 'knitted' when the time is right or happy just to chill in my w.i.p. basket. I'm in no hurry to finish it. Maybe it's because I'm using the yarn I recycled from a sweater that my 'Grannie Maud' made for me years ago; every strand of yarn that passes through my fingers once passed through hers. It's very sentimental and I'm enjoying the time it's taking me.
'Katie Davies left over Christmas break of her senior year for a short mission trip to Uganda and her life was tuned completely inside out. She found herself so moved by the people of Uganda and the needs she saw that she knew her calling was to return and care for them. Katie, a charismatic and articulate young woman, is in the process of adopting thirteen children in Uganda and has established a ministry, Amazima, that feeds and sends hundreds more to school while teaching them the Word of Jesus Christ' (extract taken from the cover).
The enormity of what Katie, this incredibly modest woman is doing, can be gleaned from her amazing book, from her web site www.amazima.org and personnel blog http://kissesfromkatie.blogspot.com.
In Katie's own words:
Help me to never be too busy or too comfortable to remember the people who suffer. Help me to never stop desiring to do something about it."
