Pondering Production: Holy Knit
The Yarn Harlot once asked a friend of hers who is "very active in her church if she thought it was appropriate to knit while sitting in the pews. She replied, 'I believe that my Maker made me the way He thinks I should be, and I'm a knitter.' To cover her bases, she uses this time to knit for charity."
Mom's cousin Bruce, a minister from Massachusetts, rang in his vote saying that if you making prayer shawls it wouldn't seem so bad.
While I have yet to knit in church, but seriously consider it on a regular basis, (so far I design quilts I'm going to make someday for the MCC sale...my brain works better when my hands are busy...) I'm excited that our Pastor James's sermons particularly those through November on the Sermon on the Mount will be available via Podcast <here.> This makes me especially happy because once we're married we'll be moving to Colorado Springs where Luke will be completing his seven month internship. (And now, no one will know if I'm knitting or not!)
