YOP – year 8 – week 48

I’m afraid this week, a bit like last week has much the same content.

I’m just so distracted this past month or so with running and walking and hiking that finding the balance is going to be key, certainly this time of year. I am thoroughly enjoying the time I am spending walking and running and am planning a lot more trail walks this coming summer. I have started a dedicated blog, An Bóithrín Beag, which is Irish for a little boreen or a little little road. Here I talk about and show some pictures I take from those adventures. I am imagining that the late Autumn and Winter will be quieter on that front and so making and creating will take more prominence in my life.

For now though I have made some progress on my Mae Cardigan. I am really liking the pattern and the cables add a lovely interest knit wise as well as visually amongst the stockinette. I really do like working with the Mondim yarn also, the colour I’m using is 110 so really it’s just a matter of me getting some time with the project to work on it.

Mae Cardigan

I have been working some extra rows on the crochet blanket as well over the course of this past week but I’m not going to show a picture of it for a few more weeks because really it’s a blanket and apart from some extra rows doesn’t really change all that quickly.

I have completed picking one section of projects for next year’s YOP list, now I just need to sit down and take a look at what other sections I want as well as projects for them. 4 weeks to go, 3 really for updates with the last being reserved for the round up post.

So the list is looking like this;
