An online friend posted that her mom said in her Bible there was a commandment to knit at the back, but then she said it was in her handwriting so maybe not: but check out Proverbs 31:
Verse 13: She seeks out wool and flax and works with willing hands to develop it.
and Verse 19: She lays her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff.
Looks like to me God wants me to knit. So I best get busy. See mom God is telling me to seek out wool and knit.
