My Life in Stitches: Bible Study Knitting

I knit in church but only in Bible study. I know that may seem disrespectful, but it actually helps me to keep my mind from wandering (although I suspect it’s a little distracting to the people sitting around me).

When I first started knitting in Bible study, I thought it was the greatest thing ever. But now, I’m not so sure. Not that the knitting is bad. That’s fine. It’s picking projects that is stressing me out. I have a rule (one among many) about my Bible study projects. They have to be:
  • Chartless unless I can memorize the chart
  • Small. I won’t work on a sweater in Bible study
  • Mindless

Not bad rules, except I’m having a hard time finding projects that fit my criteria. I know hats and fingerless gloves are perfect for Bible study knitting, but there are only so many of them I can make. I working on a felted bag right now, but I have no idea what my next project is going to be.

So knitting friends, help me out. Got any pattern suggestions for me?

A few projects I've worked on in Bible study:


Easy Fingerless Mitts

A Gray Loop
Monkey Socks
