Extreme Knitting

Last year, I started an Extreme Knitting Challenge, having been inspired by Extreme Ironing. It went along swimmingly, and then kind of tapered off (I got a bit behind with posting the entries). But then, out of the blue, I got another entry. Extreme Knitting is alive and well!

Check out Rhonda!

She's knitting during the Midwest Express, a 3-day, 184-mile bike ride that she took last month, "just for fun-??" (as she put it). She rode with a friend on her tandem and was knitting a Dublin Bay sock from Fleece Artist merino (color Baadeck Pink), from Baadeck Yarns in Baddeck, Nova Scotia). Thanks for participating, Rhonda!

If you are interested in becoming an Extreme Knitter, all you need to do is send me a picture (in JPG format or some other format that Blogger accepts) of you knitting during an activity that isn't normally associated with knitting (like cycling, diving, climbing, riding a rollercoaster). Pictures should be rated G. And as always, I reserve the right to reject an entry if I don't think it is appropriate.

I hope to get more Extreme Knitting Challenge entries soon!

I love this picture of Jez, taken about a year or two after we adopted her. It looks like she's enjoyed one Cosmo too many!

Sadly, my idea of extreme knitting is sitting on the other side of the couch every once in a while. I look forward to seeing how others interpret it. :)
