Silent poetry reading

Father, hear us, we are praying,
Hear the words our hearts are saying,
We are praying for our children.

Keep them from the powers of evil,
From the secret, hidden peril,
From the whirlpool that would suck them,
From the treacherous quicksand pluck them.

From the worldling's hollow gladness,
From the sting of faithless sadness,
Holy father, save our children.

Through life's troubled waters steer them,
Through life's bitter battle cheer them,
Father, Father, be Thou near them.
Read the language of our longing,
Read the wordless pleadings thronging,
Holy father, for our children

And Wherever they may bide,
Lead them Home at eventide.

(Amy Carmichael)

Dear Holly,
I saw your comment on WendyKnits that you couldn't execute a cable with your Addi's but could with the KnitPicks Options.
I like Addi's the best but am considering purchasing the KnitPicks Options. What makes them easier than the Addi's to use for the cables?
Best Regards,
Renee from VA
