Weather being what it is here, seems like my morning walk of 40 minutes only happens from June until November.So I pace inside with the radio on a rock/pop station for 50 minutes after my exercyle 30 minutes and 20 minutes of chi gung.If you think after all of this I am physically fit- think again. Disgusting body condition, but hey I am happy.Drinking green tea through all of this. LOL Then I stuff my face with oatmeal.
So this routine was getting too monotonous to me. I decided to try and knit and walk. Only simple stuff- garter stitch and circular needles. It is all very primitive and nothing I could ever give away or sell, but hey it works for me! I needed wool hats to sleep in that were loose fitting- I now have a few. Scarves and turtle necks and cowls for keeping my neck warm. I am working on two afghans. One is this off pink wool that Mom bought and didn't like- I am knitting small squares that will be sewn together. and a purple wool one that is larger squares to be sewn together. The latest most fun piece is a multi colored yarn that has a wavy texture. I cast on 40 stitches onto size 11 needles and knit in the round- connecting it after the first row. After that is done I will see if the circumference is right for legwarmers. Those I need- they just do not sell them long or loose enough to my liking. I wish I could knit myself underwear and drawstring pants. 2 items that are a royal pain in the ass to shop for.
so to explain simply how I knit and walk I have a bag that is lightweight and I plunk he ball of yarn into it and knit from that slung over my elbow. 50 minutes flies by!
