I’m so happy to be able to provide these show notes for y’all again this week. Of course, if you have any questions or comments, don’t hesitate to contact me!
This is technically a design FO, but I don’t have a release date planned for this so I wanted to go ahead and share it. I love how it turned out SO much! This is really just the prototype, and some changes will be made to the final design. However, I am proud of it.
Works in Progress:

Bulky Success Socks
Are you ready for the squishiest, coziest socks ever! Oh man am I obsessed with these. Pattern coming later this month!
I finished my pair, and these socks are releasing on August 31! Stay tuned, because I am so so excited about this release.
I have one more tiny sock to make, then my matching pair. To say I am excited about this project is an understatement...my heart practically melted when I showed them the girls!
Today I wanted to talk about a few specific bible verses that have brought me so much peace lately. With Fall Semester on the horizon, lots of designs in the works, a busy and demanding work schedule, and general life adventures, I have been finding myself struggling just a bit with anxious thoughts.
In 1 Corinthians 7:32, Paul cuts straight to the point and says, “I want you to be free from anxieties.” Doesn’t that sound simple?
1 Peter 5:7 is full of love, and declares, “Cast all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.”
Philippians 4:6 is one of the most impactful. It says, (paraphrased), “Do not be anxious about anything, but pray about everything.”
Anxiety has the power to be so much more than a few worrisome thoughts, and I encourage to seek help and guidance in every way you see fit. However, I also encourage you to lean on God. As the bible verses subtly state, He is so much stronger than us. We are directed to cast ALL our cares and worries onto him, and HE will give us strength! I encourage you to bask in his grace and goodness this week.
