Knitting Community

Coddiwomple

What fun!  I recently participated in a Mystery Knit Along and Walk Along via Ravelry – it was hosted by The Healthy Knitter.  This was for the month of April – one clue came out each week and was a surprise but each clue contributed to the theme.  On top of the clues a daily email was sent with encouragement, inspiration, or items to look for while you walked.

Not only were you knitting, which I love, but it also provided a community and accountability for your “Walking Contract.”  The Healthy Knitter acted as a type of life-coach and provided a template contract so you could decide your walking goals and identify what would be the barriers to those goals.  I chose to walk 15 minutes each day for the month and my barriers were the weather and finishing this house!  And solutions were identified to help overcome the barriers.

Now, I am sure you are wondering the meaning of the title she chose!  Coddiwomplev. to travel in a purposeful manner towards a vague destination.

I actually finished the knitting on time and enjoyed the repetition of the clues.  Well, I still need to block, but that is for tomorrow!   Thank you The Healthy Knitter for hosting!!
