My parents and sisters took some time this week to go through our store room. They brought back some treasures for me. One was my childhood favorite book, The Little Engine that Could, for Luke. And the other was this:
“What is that?” you say. Well, I’ll tell you. It is a piece of knitting that I made when I was probably 8 or 9. It was a Barbie skirt! I don’t even remember who taught me to knit, but she only taught me to cast on and knit. So that’s all I ever did, but I sure did invent some interesting things to do with those rectangles.
I love to see how, even then, I liked to make things with my hands. And it is encouraging to see the differences in my childish knitting and what the Lord enables me to create now.
