Crocheting the Miles ~ 2/8/13


Crocheting a one row for every 3 miles (5K) walked to make a "Life-ghan" with Cris.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



Total Miles This Week:  10
Total Miles in 2013:  34

Rows allowed:  11
Rows completed: 11

If you remember, I only had nine colors in my basket last week.  As I was walking one day, I started thinking that it would be cool if I used 10 colors.  That would mean that every repeat is 30 miles and would make it easier to track the amount of miles I walked.  So, after a trip to the yarn store, I'm now using 10 colors.


I is easy to see that I've walked at least 33 miles.  I need 2 more miles in order to add another row.  I am finding it to be an amazing motivator now that I'm over being sick!

2/1/13-2/7/13 = 10 miles

Total:  10/60

  1. I love the idea of your coming up with a new crochet idea while out doing your walk. LOVE it - really merges the two: crafting and health. I do think it would give you a better visual, a quick reference, as to the distance on changing to 10 colors.

    Keep up the great work!
