WIP Wednesday


During last week's cold snap, I discovered that leg warmers are even warmer than pants. The one set I have is a purple-ish pink, so it doesn't match all of my clothes. I decided that I needed a set in a more neutral color. Thus I launched into this:

 

It's the first of the Les Cables de Faux leg warmers. It's a free pattern, very easy, great TV knitting. 

I picked out the yarn by wandering through my LYS. This gray heather colorway called out my name. It's Galway Worsted in gray heather. It's fairly scratchy, but I'll be wearing it over tights, so I don't think that will be a problem. There was a similar color in Cascade 220. The Galway won out because a) it was $1 cheaper per skein; and b) it did not need to be swifted before knitting.

I have a great swift (this LYS doesn't offer swifting), but swifting does take time and effort. We are starting a couple new programs at my school, and I am working killer hours. So at this point, not swifting is a huge advantage.

However, I will find a few moments to check out the other WIPs on Tami Amis' WIP Wednesday post!

  1. I've always been happy with Galway worsted. It likely softens up after a wash or two. Lovely colour and pattern!

  4. I know the feeling about swifting. Sometimes it's just easier to avoid it all together. haha. Well I guess I should start knitting me some leg warmers if they really do work so well!

  6. I really like that pattern! I am not making any Christmas gifts this year, but my aunt hinted LOUDLY that she sure would like some legwarmers, so I'm taking note of this pattern and hoping to make it for either her birthday or next Christmas :) I have to start Christmas knitting in January if I have any hopes of getting it done with all the selfish knitting that I squeeze in ;)

  7. CALLING ON THE NAME OF THE LORD?

    On the Day of Pentecost Peter quoted the prophet Joel (Acts 2:21'And it shall be that everyone who call on the name of the Lord will be saved.')

    To call on the name of the Lord is to acknowledge the authority and power of the Lord, and follow in obedience by meeting the terms of pardon.

    The apostle Peter did not tell those on the Day of Pentecost to say the "sinner's prayer." Saying the "sinner's prayer" is not calling on the name of the Lord.

    Peter preached the death, burial, and bodily resurrection of Jesus. Peter declared the Jesus was Lord and Christ. (Acts 2: 22-26) They obviously believed Peter's preaching because they asked the question(Acts 2:37 ....."Brethren what shall we do?")
    Peter did not tell them to say the "sinner's prayer." What was Peter's response to their question? (Acts 2:38 Peter said to them, "Repent, and each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.)


    THE NARRATIVE OF CALLING ON THE NAME OF THE LORD.
    1. FAITH: Believe in the death, burial, and bodily resurrection of Jesus. Accept Jesus as Lord and Savior.
    2. CONFESSION: Acknowledge Jesus as the Christ and the Son of God.
    3. REPENTANCE: Make the commitment to turn from sin and turn toward God.
    4. WATER BAPTISM: Be immersed into Christ for the forgiveness of your sins.


    HOW DID THE ETHIOPIAN EUNUCH CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD? (Acts 8:25-40


    1. Philip preached Jesus to him. (Acts 8:35)
    2. He confessed Jesus as The Christ the Son of God. (Acts 8:37)
    3. He was baptized in water. Immersed by Philip. (Acts 8:38-39)
    The Ethiopian eunuch did not say the sinner's pray nor was he asked to do so by Philip.


    Romans 10:13 for "WHOEVER WILL CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD WILL BE SAVED."


    Romans 10:9-10 that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; 10 for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation.


    To call on the name of the Lord is to acknowledge His power and authority and confess Him as Lord and Christ . (Acts 2:26,Acts 8:37, Romans 10:9-10) To call on the Name of the Lord is to repent and be baptized. (Acts 2:38)


    WE ARE TOLD TO CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD TO BE SAVED.


    We are never told we are saved by "faith only." We are never told that saying the "sinner's prayer" is calling on the name of the Lord.
