Yarn Along

Joining Ginny for Yarn Along this week.


I am still working on the baby blanket, and it is coming along nicely. The color is way off in this picture. It looks washed out for some reason. I hope to finish the blanket by Yarn Along next week.



This week I am reading Weightless: Making Peace With Your Body by Kate Wicker. I love it! Kate Wicker writes about her body image struggles in an honest way that I can really relate to. She shares teachings of the Catholic Church and quotes from the saints that have helped her along her path towards peace with her body. 


As a girl, I was often told by one of my main caregivers that I would never be pretty or thin enough. Those words hurt me every time she said them. Through the years, I have worked on leaving that pain behind. In Weightless, Kate reminds me that I am beautiful. I am loved by a wonderful man, sweet boys, friends, and family. Most important, I am loved by my Father in heaven. He created me out of love, and His love has made me beautiful. I recommend this book to any woman that has struggled with a negative body image. 


Please visit Ginny and the other talented ladies that link up with Yarn Along. You will not be disappointed.

  1. Your blanket is lovely. I make one in a similar pattern and I like it because you have a nice pattern without a huge amount of counting.
