Take your socks for a walk 

Sometimes if the project is just right, I can knit while I walk.I began some ubiquitous Hermione’s Everyday Socks the other day when I finished a different pair (to be posted soon). I can’t not have a pair of socks on the needles and I had recently received this gorgeous yarn by The Lemonade Shop, so it seemed like I should cast on a pair for me. I’ve made this pattern before, but I gave that pair away, so I decided this simple repeat was perfect for another autopilot pair of socks. 

The color is Sweatpants in the Mighty Sock base. It’s delightful so far. I love to combine knitting with walking when I can, making leisurely exercise even more pleasurable. I have a couple of Go Knit pouches that are perfect for this. I used to be able to walk to work and I had a pleasant 30 minute (when also knitting) commute to work through a park and campus. I almost always knit socks on these kinds of walks. The pouch can be clipped to your belt loop or worn on your wrist. OK, it’s definitely a bit nerdy, but I’m wholly willing to commit to knitting nerdery. I reserve this kind of knitting for pacing in the house when I can’t go out, or family walks. Some people are badass enough to knit through marathons though. I’m not there, yet…
