Five miles today, and, so far, I feel great. I wasn't a puddle at the end, so I must be building up endurance.
Here is the hemp top:
This has taken a lot longer than I initially anticipated, probably because I'm not terribly good at gauging how long a knitting project will take me. I also stopped for several weeks because the hemp was rubbing my fingers raw for a while. Now I'm back on track, and I think I have only a few more inches to go. Hopefully that means I'll be finished in about a week or less, we'll see.
