Knitting in the Extreme

Okay, I know that there are lots and lots of intrepid, adventurous knitters out there. So, in that spirit, I'm proposing a little contest to see just how far we take our knitting.

To be eligible, all contenders should submit a picture of themselves (or their knitting) knitting where no (wo)man has knit before. Knitting while skydiving, scuba diving, bicycling, rock climbing, on rooftops, up a tree, etc. are all examples. It isn't necessary for the knitting activity to take place in the great outdoors, either. The key is to be imaginative (while keeping it clean!) and not harming the knitter or the knitting in the process (safety first!). It’s best if the activities are real, although points will be awarded for the most creative use of Photoshop, if necessary.

All contenders will receive the right to display the Extreme Knitter button (currently under development). The button will link to a gallery of the extreme knitters (assuming I can figure out how). I’ll award some kind of knitting-related prize to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners. It would be nice if there were enough entries to award prizes every month. After all, there are different activities for different seasons!

So don't be shy...send me those photos! You can find my email address under Contact section of "View My Complete Profile."

Darn it, I just got back from skydiving and had my latest sock in the car, but they wouldn't let me take it with me out of the plane!

I want to participate, too! Is there a deadline for getting you the photo? I'm going on a mini-vacation next week that might just be perfect...

Hehe, I'm an avid biker, but I'm not sure how knitting and biking is going to work together! *picturing yarn tangling in the chains as a pile of crumpled metal and Kimi goes rolling down the hill!*

Great challenge though! :)

Last weekend I skinny-knitted (swear to God) but I'm afraid there are no pics to submit.
The bathing suit was feeling wet and uncomfortable and the yarn didn't mind!

I consider this blog very interesting, most of all because i would like to lean kniting, i think is a good activity that i can practice in my free time. In fact now i will have a lot of free time for me, because i will get a house throw costa rica homes for sale and i really liked the style that i chose.
