Working with wool helps me to feel connected to God. I've often thought about the profoundness of wool. It's not only one of the most perfect fibers to work with, but it's also warm and protects us from the elements.
Whether you knit, crochet, felt, spin, weave, make rugs, or sew, just the act of working with wool is calming. It brings a sense of connectedness to God. Working with wool can also help to bring you toward healing and wholeness. It also gives you a sense of accomplishment that you made something that has a purpose. We have been compared to sheep in the Bible. Maybe God wants us to realize that He created us with a purpose too.
As a knitter, I feel it is a privilege to work with wool and I thank God that I learned how to knit, especially since it is the reason why I quit smoking cigarettes just about 25 years ago! Stay Inspired and Have a Happy New Year!
P.S. I have a special request: Please pray for my sister Karen, as she has an appointment with a surgeon this Friday, 1-2-09. Be sure to visit Karen's Blog to see her beautiful creations.
