Father’s day is this Sunday. My how the time has flown. Unlike Mothers Day, I dont have items completed a few weeks in advance.
For some reason I was thinking it was later in the month, but that’s not true, since my daughters choir will be performing in church on Fathers day which is this Sunday.
I was a bit puzzled at what to do for my father. He’s low maintenance, and doesn’t make too many demands. But, the more I thought about it, I realized that he’d most likely appreciate a cover for his Bible.
It might sound simple or insignificant to some, but those people don’t know my father. He studies the Bible daily, and knows more than anyone else I know; Not just from the scriptural standpoint, but the historical aspect also. I enjoy our conversations about the Bible, since I usually learn something new not so much from a Biblical perspective, since I’ve read the Bible several times, but I learn a lot about the people/locations from a historical standpoint. He uses reference books to accompany his studies.

I do believe I’ll knit the Bible cover, and will use a cable stitch. Cable’s are stitches that are knitted out of order. The result is beautiful, and adds a touch of elegance to a knitted project. I’m sure he’d like the cover. A few months ago, I started crocheting a Kindle Fire cover for him, and I believe I’ll finish so I can give it to him this coming Sunday. A few days ago a reader emailed me for information on cables. And so I logged onto YouTube and stumbled upon this informative video.

Although I can make cables without using a cable knitting needle, I tend to use them because I’m paranoid about something happening to ruin my pretty cables.
This is my 300th post on Celebrate Life. I have a ways to go before I catch up with my last personal site that had about 5,000 posts, but to be fair that site was around for almost four years, and this site is only two years old. In fact, for about a year on this site, I didn’t post anything.
The knitted hats for my daughter and I are being put on hold, while I work on completing the covers for my father, during my down time.
