A Confession

I did it. Now I don't say this with pride... more as an admission, or confession if you will. But, look what I did in church this morning.


I was sitting off to the side surrounded by my family and friend. A quick surveillance led me to the conclusion that nobody could really see me (and truly, by biggest concern is distracting other people... I do not think the good Lord would be offended), so I pulled out the tiny beginning of my 2nd OSU sock. I'm telling you... I heard every word our pastor said and my mind never drifted to things I needed to do later or the upcoming week or anything. Since this is a constant struggle for me, and always has been even back in my school days, I found it quite settling to have my hands busy. I don't know that I'll make a habit of it... it still makes me feel a bit naughty... but what a blessing to be able to focus on a sermon!

A friend of mine used to do that with her cross-stitch - but she quite openly piled all her patterns, fabric, and notions around her and stitched away during the service.

I know what you mean about being able to listen better while knitting, but I don't know that others believe it's really true of us!

I am glad you had a wall of your men around you! Do you think you can rent them out to the rest of us?

Good for you! I feel very peaceful when I knit, so what better place to do so? :0)

I just want to know which church you attend (I think I'd be there in a flash).
