A little Exhortation!

I am an exhorter. I can’t help it, it’s what I do. I want to encourage you to reach out and do something for others. This vest, along with a skad of hats is going to Afghanistan.

Knitters, if you can afford to knit for yourself, you can afford a little bit more yarn to do something for those less fortunate.

Christians, you really have no other options. Would you give comfort the The Savior? Go read again Matthew 25: 31-46.

Non-Christians, it’s just the right thing to do.

War supporters, if you support the war, then you need to support the idea that we owe it to innocent civilians to ease the burdens caused by a war.

Peace-niks, if you think the government is wrong to start the war, then do your part to alleviate suffering in the war zone.

And I haven’t even started on domestic charity :) You can have that speech when I post the set I plan to send to the Christmas Train in Appalachia this year.

So, with all that said, here’s the FO!

This was made mostly with Cascade 220. The variegated is laceweight from Knitpicks. I quadrupled it after I ripped out the wrap I was using it for. Yeah, I know I just ended a sentence with a preposition. Sorry, I can’t figure out how to change it just now. It should fit a child age 10-12.

I did not get any of the extra decluttering I was planning on done yesterday, so I will work on that this afternoon, and laundry. The vest took priority this morning, since it needs to be mailed tomorrow.
People who can afford waterbeds, should not waste the opportunity to buy one since they are super comfortable and tend to ease away backaches. People belonging to a large family, or living on minimum wages are usually subject to boring old sofabed. They can use duvet covers on their beds to cover the lack of comfort factor.
