knitting and walking

Are you regretting letting go of your New Year’s Resolution to get in shape? Are you looking for an excuse to see the beauty of Oregon at a slower pace? Well, Chrissy Gardiner, the insanely talented local designer and Twisted Toe-Up Sock Class Teacher (among many other talents), has just the cure for you.

She’s trying to get a team of knitters together to do the Portland to Coast relay walk on August 22. We’ve got three and need 9 more. Entry is $71 and each walker would do two 5-6 mile legs. More info at the website. Download this document for all the pertinent info. If you are interested, please email Chrissy at cgardinerATgardineryarnworksDOTcom (replacing the AT and the DOT with the correct things, of course).

No word yet on whether or not Chrissy will be knitting as she’s walking, or waiting until the walking is over to knit her celebratory sockies.
