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

Yarn Along

The baptismal gown is on hold.  I finished the gown portion and realized that the gauge was way too big, even for my babies.  So, after tearing it all out, I've started again.

To offset my disappointment on redoing the gown, I finished my running hat.  First time doing a Fairisle pattern.  I wore it on a run the other day and it worked beautifully.

Since finishing the hat, I've cast on a sweater for myself.  It's the Wallaby Pattern by Cottage Creations.

Re-reading "Large Family Logistics" by Kim Brenneman.  With each pregnancy, I feel that I need to simplify even more.
