YOP – year 8 – week 49

This week feels like I’ve finally made progress on my Mae cardigan. It’s just been plodding along for the last couple of weeks, but a shift happened somewhere in the middle of this week and I’ve suddenly been working on it at every opportunity. I have now split for the sleeves and I’m now progressing along nicely with the body.

I love the detail of the cables down the fronts and I’m close to deciding whether to add in some waist shaping into this item. It is a slightly cropped cardigan, somewhat similar in length to the Bentley I knit earlier in this YOP year and I wish I had waist shaping in that so going on that desire I will probably end up adding in the waist shaping.

Mae Cardigan

I haven’t worked too many rows on my blanket this week as I’ve been out walking quite a good bit and if you follow me on Instagram you will know this weekend has had lots of walks so far. There is going to be lots to write about next week on my walking blog. I’ve also settled down to a better writing routine during the day, so that too has limited the amount of making time but it feels like I’m finding a good routine between it all, perhaps the odd tweak here and there but otherwise it’s finding it’s way.

So the list, still looks pretty much the same; but here it is
