Meet my new socks.
These are the same socks I was knitting ten days ago. (Knitting Life in the Round) I just finished them Sunday, and I wore them yesterday to cheer me up on a cold, rainy day.
I'm addicted to color. For years, I have bought far too many clothes because I crave a lot of color in my wardrobe. The color that I put on each day is an expression of my mood and often an expression of my persona. Knitting socks has become my new way to incorporate color into my life. It's a lot cheaper than buying a cashmere sweater!
I'm really grateful that God created color. I'm not sure he really had to; we could have functioned perfectly well in a black and white world. But color adds beauty to our lives and emotion. It helps to differentiate things that otherwise look alike. To me, it's a demonstration that God cares about more than just utility. He longs to provide us with abundance.
So I praise him for the wonderful colors with which he has painted the world.
And my next pair of socks will be varied shades of pink.
