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

Joining Ginny on Yarn Along..

Getting closer to finishing my Fibonacci sequence inspired sweater.  The pattern I chose was a buttoned sweater considering that I'll be nursing again for the next two years.  My knitting teacher (a fellow engineer) thought that it would be fun to knit a sweater using the Fibonacci sequence.  The Fibonacci sequence is found all through nature.  Here's one example.

My reading lately consists of reading and re-reading "Designing Your Own Classical Curriculum" by Laura Berquist.  We've been using MODG (Mother of Divine Grace) as our homeschooling curriculum since my oldest was in first grade.  (She's currently finishing up seventh.)  Most of our curriculum has been ordered for next year thanks to an Easter sale at Adoremus Books.

A full homeschool plan of what we are doing is here from grades K-12.  Not sure on how to get it to look a little better on the blog.


  1. Lovely cardigan! Your post reminded me of my son who is a math major and talks math all the time :) I think I comprehend most of what he says. The striping on the cardi is wonderful!!!

  2. That's brilliant, to use the Fibonacci sequence. I might try that on a scarf, if you don't mind me running away with your idea. Or a son wants a really long hat and that might just do the trick. Thank you so much for have given me something new to think about.

  3. love those stripes and your color choices!

  4. Looks great Cheryl! Awesome job! I finished three dishcloths and now the kids want me to knit them a sweater! I think I need to babystep to a scarf first.

  5. Great job! Your very talented!
