Sometimes, silence is pink......

Sat, I had good knitting time. Our local Miata Club had their annual Polar Bear Run. I can tell you this, the polar bears were sweating. It started out as a brisk day, but when the sun came out, everyone was peeling off the jackets. I wore one of my Sontags and I was just right. I love these things. I wear them all the time. This one is my Simple Colorplay, perfect for any hand painted, variegated dk weight yarn.Well, I am plugging along on my book. Everything in this book is pink. Am I weird in thinking that pink is a happy color? Well, it is for me. Here is a pic of all the shades of pink that I am using. I have now added another design to the book. Now, I am at a design count of 17. I have now completed 9 of the designs. Most of the ones I have left are smaller knits. I wish that I could share more about the book, but it will not come out until next year. Until then my silence will be pink.

Another favorite quote from the book, Knowledge of the Holy by AW Tozer.
"A right conception of God is basic not only to systematic theology, but to practical Christian living as well. It is to worship what the foundation is to the temple; where it is inadequate or out of plumb, the whole structure must sooner or later collapse. I believe there is scarcely an error in doctrine or a failure in applying Christian ethics that cannot be traced finally to imperfect and ignoble thoughts about God."

I like pink, though I don't buy it much I'm not sure why, but it is truly a happy color. Reminds me of my two girls being babies.
