My brain is fried!

My brain feels fried today! I just printed off all 19 patterns for my book, 47 pages in all! Now comes the hard part, proofing. I still have a few more remakes to knit up, but that should be easy.
Tues, I got a lot of knitting done. I went with my Michael on a day trip. He had a meeting in Arkadelphia and there was a yarn store that I had heard about and wanted visit. It is called Knit Unto Others. It had some really lovely yarn and was a great roomy place to come and browse. I held back and only bought 2 skeins of yarn. One was some Plymouth Select, which is a worsted weight Merino Superwash wool in a soft pink. I need to remake some fingerless gloves and headband, for my book, at a tighter gauge. It is a tightly twisted yarn and gives great stitch definition. Then I bought a skein of Plymouth Zino. It is a sock weight yarn in a slow variegating color of dark greens, greys and blacks. I had been wanting to try this yarn and a skein was in the half price rack, so it followed me home.
Well, back to the old grindstone!

I will leave you with another favorite quote from the book, Knowledge of the Holy by AW Tozer.
"When we try to imagine what God is like, we must of necessity use that-which-is-not-God as the raw material for our minds to work on; hence whatever we visualize God to be, He is not, for we have constructed our image out of that which He has made and what He has made is not God. If we insist upon trying to imagine Him, we end with an idol, made not with hands but with thoughts; and an idol of the mind is as offensive to God as an idol of the hand."

I just love Tozer, and this is such an awesome thought. Thanks so much for sharing it.

Wow, good goal accomplished! I need to get it in gear myself. I have been sluggish.
