Do you not know that the runners in the stadium all run in the race, but only one wins the prize? Run so as to win. Every athlete exercises discipline in every way. They do it to win a perishable crown, but we an imperishable one. Thus I do not run aimlessly; I do not fight as if I were shadowboxing. No, I drive my body and train it, for fear that, after having preached to others, I myself should be disqualified. - 1 Cor 9:24-27

With each baby, I've crocheted a baptismal gown. Since learning how to knit, I decided to go outside my comfort zone and knit a baptismal gown for our newest little one. To me, each stitch is a little prayer for this little soul. It comforts me in my anxiety during pregnancy.
This is the beginning of the gown starting from the waist going toward the feet. The pattern is "Ribbons and Lace Christening Gown". The author has been so helpful in answering my beginner questions.
The picket edging is almost complete. I'm so excited. With the weather turning colder, my running hat is beckoning to be finished and a new sweater for me is waiting to be cast on.
At our local yarn shop, they offer different classes. My husband is urging me to sign up since I will be in 'baby' mode starting in June. Now is the time to get some Mommy alone time in.
The kids and I have been reading "Angel in the Waters" by Regina Doman.
