A reader recently asked me about pictures she had seen of long-ago knitters tending their flocks or going about their daily work, knitting all the while. How did they knit and walk at the same time? While doing colorwork, no less?
The truth is, modern knitters can learn how to knit and walk at the same time, too. I recently started giving this a try when I began spending my days following a little crawler around the house and realized that I'd never get any knitting done if I had to sit in one place to do it.
I haven't yet ventured outside for a walk with my knitting (my neighborhood is rather hilly and I'm rather accident-prone), but even just walking around the house I'm sure that I'm more productive than I would otherwise be now that I'm able to walk and knit at the same time.
If you're a fan of walking and knitting simultaneously, I'd love to hear how you do it, why you love it and if you have any advice or warnings for people who might want to start doing it. You can leave your thoughts in the comments or share a longer story.
