yet another social networking site hmmmmmm only reason I am giving it a try is because there are so many knitters on there. Having trouble figuring out how to add friends. Maybe I shouldn't try to do new things after midnight !

Pumpkin Pie Muffins

A couple of weeks ago I found a recipe for a 2 ingredient muffin. Pumpkin and yellow cake mix. Now I lack the ability to follow a recipe without making my own changes. How ever small they may be. Hence the birth of the PUMPKIN PIE MUFFINS. These are so easy to make and unbelievable yummy. I hope you enjoy them as much as my family has.

Pumpkin Pie Muffins

1 can 100%pumpkin
1 box yellow cake mix
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp cloves
1 tsp vanilla

mix. bake at 350 for 40 minutes (or until toothpick comes out clean)
Yup it is that easy ! Well the girls are here for for coffee and muffins. Bye !!

God's Love

Hosea 11
The Lord’s Love for Israel
 1 “When Israel was a child, I loved him,
      and I called my son out of Egypt.
 2 But the more I[a] called to him,
      the farther he moved from me,
   offering sacrifices to the images of Baal
      and burning incense to idols.
 3 I myself taught Israel[b] how to walk,
      leading him along by the hand.
   But he doesn’t know or even care
      that it was I who took care of him.
 4 I led Israel along
      with my ropes of kindness and love.
   I lifted the yoke from his neck,
      and I myself stooped to feed him.

To me these verses could have been written especially for me......

Hosea 11
The Lord’s Love for Tish 
 1 “When Tish was a child, I loved her,
      and I called my daughter out of the World.
 2 But the more I called to her,
      the farther she moved from me,
   offering sacrifices to the images of the World
      and burning incense to idols.
 3 I myself taught Tish how to walk,
      leading her along by the hand.
   But she doesn’t know or even care
      that it was I who took care of her.
 4 I led Tish along
      with my ropes of kindness and love.
   I lifted the yoke from her neck,
      and I myself stooped to feed her.

   I don't think I have ever heard a Word from God that was so powerful and that hit me this hard. When I was small I didn't have a father to teach me how to walk or to keep me from danger. But all along my true Father was there guiding and protecting me. I was never alone. Ever.

Thank you Abba Father.

socks for grandmother

Originally uploaded by tishknits
I have been knitting on these lovely socks for MONTHS ! Not that a pair of socks takes that long...... I have just had so many other beautiful things pull me away from these. Alas they are almost done ! I am hoping to have them in the mail and on the way to Louisiana by Monday. XX Fingers crossed. Hopefully nothing else will tempt me away :)

Newest Spinning

Originally uploaded by tishknits
Last night I spent the evening with my lovely friends spinning and talking. Nothing like a night with the girls and yarn. I learned how to use my lace flyer ! As you can see in the picture I picked up on it and WOOHOO I am loving making lace weight yarn! It is so delicate and beautiful. I thought I would only be able to make delicate yarn on my spindle. At this rate I will have a hank of lace weight yarn to show soon :)

Tuesday is knit night !!!

I love Tuesdays. It is the day were I get to leave all my worries behind me and focus on laughing with my friends. Tonight was a great night we laughed, we shared and we even did some shopping. I believe the newest Debbie Bliss magazine was bought as well as the 2 at a time socks book. I am very excited about that.

Life is good !

Knitting block

  So last night I had knitter's block. I looked through every book and pattern I owned looking for inspiration, nothing felt right. So I turn to Ravelry for help. So many patterns !!! What is a knitter to do?? After a couple of hours in pattern heaven I decided that what I wanted to knit was a hat. So I found this cutie. Looking forward to seeing how it turns out.

Drop Stitch Scarf

Originally uploaded by tishknits
This is one of my WIPs (work in progress) This beautiful 100% silk yarn started out as a small stockinette scarf. But half way through, it decided it didn't want to be that. So I frogged it and went on a pattern hunt. One of the many pleasures of being a knitter is the hunt for a fun pattern. I stumbled on this scarf from I love it, and so does the yarn :) So I am off to knit my pretty pretty scarf.

Snow Day Knits

Originally uploaded by tishknits
I am working on 2 different knits today. Yes at the same time. My attention span leaves something to be desired LOL. The purple one is a the second sock of a pair that I am knitting for my grandmother. Very pretty socks, but very time consuming !!! The teal is the first of a pair of wristlets that I am knitting for Lainey. I will post a pic of both when they are done. Both should be wonderfully cute.
