I recently started my most difficult knitting project EVER. It’s a beautiful shawl and my daughter bought me georgeous yarn and the pattern for my birthday. I knit left handed and have never used a chart before so I had to make some pattern changes. It’s a challenge, but a good one.
Well, 8 rows into the chart (140+ stitches wide) I found a mistake. Eek! I got help and ripped all 8 rows out. But, I also learned the importance of adding a lifeline every so often.
Talk about a lifeline…the Word of God is so important. I need it every day! Integrating it into my life keeps my thinking right and helps me avoid mistakes. Plus if I do make a mistake, the Word is my lifeline — making it much easier to see and fix what’s wrong.
How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth! Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way. Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
Psalm 119:103-105 (KJV)
