Walking and Knitting

Found this lovely image and the very nice blog I listed below.

For the ultimate multitasker… some tips for walking and knitting safely…

  • If you have a track for laps or walking near you in a park or some other place… that’s a good place to practice. And you’re not in any danger of being hit by cars. I do the walk around my neighborhood which is extremely pedestrian friendly and residential… so there isn’t a lot of traffic.
  • Wear good safe shoes… make sure your laces are tied, everything fastened 🙂 I’m such a dork I forget. Also make sure you wear comfortable shoes.
  • Having a walking small tote that has a handle that fits around your wrist is a must. I use the zippered pyramid bags or Knit Walk bags.
  • I usually work on relatively simple stockinette projects… unless the knit purl or lace is very repetitive and easy to memorize. Avoid excessive increases & decreases 🙂

If you’re going to walk on the street: (sorry if these seem really basic)

  • Always stop before getting to a cross walk.
  • Be very aware of your surroundings.
  • Again avoid busy areas.
  • If you’re just getting used to it… don’t take your pet on a walk with you… getting tangled with Fido and sockyarn is not fun 🙂
