The Walking Crocheter

I have a plan to lose weight and crochet more…. because I dont crochet enough.. yeah right.

I plan to walk 2 miles every Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday.. weather permitting. My first project will be a scarf for the special Olympics.

I started yesterday (Thursday) . I have to say its a little weird walking while focusing on something in your hands. I almost ran in to a

A few people asked what I was doing.. mainly cops . The first one was giving someone a ticket on the other side of the road when he noticed me.. He asked what I was doing in a curious tone . I said I am making a scarf for the special Olympics. He smiled and told me to pay attention to my surroundings.  ( today’s tip DONT SPEED)

The second one was pulling out of the gas station and asked me what I was doing, I told him . He told me his mother and sister knit and told me to be careful.

I had to stop when I reached the highway on and off ramps. I definitely need to pay attention around there.

My destinations was my fiances work.  which is 2 miles from our house. I was early so I sat in the car. I left our place at about 2:30 and according to the clock outside of the bank before I stopped it was 3:04. I got a good chunk done in that time.


I will keep you updated 🙂
