My Redeemer Lives

This is one of my favorite songs. Nicole C. Mullen is awesome. Her voice is powerful. Hear the song done to a portion of the movie, "The Passion of the Christ" here: Nicole C. Mullen

Who taught the sun where to stand in the morning?
And who told the ocean you can only come this far?
And who showed the moon where to hide till evening?
Whose words alone can catch a falling star?

Well I know my Redeemer lives
I know my Redeemer lives
All of creation testifies
This life within me cries
I know my Redeemer lives

The very same God
That spins things in orbit
Runs to the weary, the worn and the weak
And the same gentle hands that hold me when I'm broken
They conquered death to bring me victory

Now I know, my Redeemer lives
I know my Redeemer lives
Let all creation testify
Let this life within me cry
I-I-I know
My Redeemer

He lives
To take away my shame
And He lives
Forever I'll proclaim
That the payment for my sins
Was the precious life He gave
And now He's alive and
There's an empty

And I know
My Redeemer lives
He lives
I know
My Redeemer lives
Let all creation testify
Let this life within me cry
I-I-I know my Redeemer

I know
My Redeemer lives
*I know my Redeemer lives*

*I know, That I know, that I know, that I know, that I know
He lives
*my redeemer lives*
*Because He lives I can face tomorrow
He lives
*I know, I know*
He lives
*I spoke with Him this morning!*
He lives
*The tomb is empty*
He lives
*He Lives! I'm going to tell everybody!!*

Honeybee Stole

I've been wanting a white shawl or stole and have also had this pattern for a while. It's Anne Hanson's Honeybee Stole. The pictures here won't do it justice at this point but will soon be beautiful! I'm knitting with KNITPICKS fingering weight Merino/Silk, BARE.

Other knitting I've got going is Paton's Must Have Cardigan. I'm using Cascade Ecological Wool in a two-toned rag wool look. The back is finished and I am halfway up the left front.

My 'fabulous fiber find' from a thrift store. Obviously not really fiber but certainly related. Says, "Burwood Products Co" on the back. I love it!! After checking online it looks like they might be from about 1965. I found some oval plaques similar doing an internet search selling for $36.00. Mine is a keeper!
It measures 16"X7"

A Little Treat

If you've never knitted yourself a facecloth/washcloth think about it. Knit it in a day and immediately take a hot shower or bath and enjoy! Makes a wonderful gift as well. This one is knit in Reynolds, Sedona cotton, long ago discontinued. Try any fingering weight cotton or Euroflax Linen by Louet. The latter is pricey but a skein makes 2 and if it's a gift then of course you can justify it and you get one too!

with the exception of weaving in all the ends and sewing up the side seams it's finished. What started out as a jacket turned into a vest. I'm happy enough with it. Now onto something new or actually a cardigan already begun.
