Hand knit.

Well, what you really need to do is make sure they are black stockings, no matter what else you do. But if you want something seriously thick and hand-knit, I would suggest these in black (NOT silk):

Why thank you, Dora. I knew this would be a great thread because I started it. I am glad you have recognized that fact. But I certainly do not intend for it to be FUN!!

Well, they have to be black. And you have to be careful because sneakers can look too sporty. They have to have laces. Hope that helps. Make sure they are plain.

I wrote this most excellent post in another thread yesterday and I wanted it to be preserved in my most holy answers thread. I am so good at writing these things up that I wanted everyone who reads my great answers to have a chance to see it.

Quote:
Well, if they hurt your feelings or you think the ordnung is stupid, you better keep your mouth shut. The bishop has the right to hurt your feelings. For example, if you can't afford the material for a longer skirt for your girls and the hemline is slightly short and he calls you on it, it doesn't matter if you are too poor. It is your own stupid fault. It's your husband's responsibility to make enough money and your responsibility to get it sewn. He could look at you snidely and say "Your skirts are too short. You need to spend some time making new dresses", implying you are lazy and make you feel like a terrible heel and if you told him you had no money for new material, it would simply be no excuse and too awful bad. Even your own preachers here know that. When folks whine about being hurt in church conflicts it's their own stupid fault. They will tell you glowing stories about how THEY were hurt and just went forward and didn't get offended at all. That's because they know what holiness really is. No money is no excuse and nothing is an excuse for saying anything bad about God's anointed even if they falsely accuse you of everything under the sun. There is never excuse for you. That's what true holiness is.

Well, ILG told me that people were looking for me on Steve Epley's "I'm Back" thread. I figured that everyone really missed me. It's hard to go too long without some real conservative input that helps you keep balance in your life. As liberal as you all are, you are pretty imbalanced. That is obvious.

It is summer and I am really busy. We live according to the seasons here and the gardening is taking up a great deal of my time. I have been canning green beans and peas and putting up zucchini and summer squash mostly. But there is so much to do. We just got done making so much strawberry jam.

Anyway, I am here to help you out of your liberal mindsets, just write me and let me know. God's work is important work. Jesus stayed behind being about His "Father's Business" and I wouldn't want to let you down. So, here I am, here to balance out your life.

Emma. did you go outside your community for your education. The language you speak, is most definately different from all other Amish that I have known?

Or did you come into the community after you completed your education and find favor with one of the young Amish Gentlemen and conform to their ways and get married?
