YOP – year 8 – week 50

Good morning folks, just checking in today with some progress on my Mae Cardigan. It finally seems to be motoring along as I am now on the ribbing on the bottom of body. The body only had to get to 10″ so it’s a short, cropped size and why it took this long I can’t say but it did!

I might still have time to get this off the needles yet before this YOP year ends, that is the main aim for right now. Today I’m going to settle down and work on getting the ribbing done and a sleeve picked up and started.

I may head out later for a walk but have pushed off an 18/23k walk to just rest, I’ve been pushing it a bit lately. My recent walking post can be read here and I should have another post going up this week about a 22k walk along the first stage of the Old Rail Trail.

I’ve gotten some writing done and quite a bit of reading after a visit to the library to stock up on some new reading material. Other than that it’s been a quiet week.              I’ve drafted up my end of year post as well as my first post for next year as I’ve been finalising my list. I’ve made a few graphics which I’ll share with the group later this week so if they wish to use them they can and that has been my making week.

So this year’s list looks like this;
