I’ve been organizing my storage room. One thing I needed in there was a way to look at my yarns and be able to choose which ones I wanted to use in my next project. Some yarns are bright … some muted. Others are variegated … which means they have a lot of colors. I can use a multitude of other colors to work in with that kind of yarn.
I try to match the project with the intended receiver.
For the NASCAR fan dying of cancer, I used the NASCAR colors for his afghan. The baby being born into a family of Oregon Duck’s fans, I used green and yellow. A lovely young lady who is petite … but pregnant … I made a dainty round baby afghan. I’m currently working on a baby afghan whose mother has been described to me as “hippie”. It’s going to have a lot of fun colors in it.
Each project is created with a certain receiver in mind … and prayers are worked into the yarn as my fingers fly.
Don’t you think God is like that?
He looks at us … sees us as we really are … and chooses just the right circumstances and events to create a pleasing finished project. We are surrounded with His love and prayer as we live each day … while He works on completing us.
How wonderful that our pattern makes us a unique individual unlike any other. I’m comfortable in the Master Designer’s hands.
