It's a GRAND idea! I travel with my job and always do a search to find LYS's either in the city/town where I'll be working or somewhere along my route when driving. I've met some totally awesome shopkeepers and knitters along the way. This actually works quite well for me as the closest LYS is 30 miles away and it's not in a spot that I need to go there for any other reason. So I am never to far from a LYS when (which is often) I need/want more yarn, books, accessories. I'm totally fine with this arrangement!

If/when you undertake this endeavor you could do some research and find out about local knitting groups/guilds and perhaps sit and knit with them at one of their meetings.

Great idea YarnMommy! I bet you could come up with some neat project ideas, just being in those regions, for inspiration!

Jouf, love the idea of biking and knitting! LOL. Actually, if you were in the back of a tandem, it could really work out! Might make for slow, lazy biking though. Hard to imagine knitting and pushing yourself hard for a work out at the same time! But hey, I guess anything's possible!

Speaking of which.... has anyone ever tried working out at a gym and knitting? You could totally knit while on the treadmaster or stationary bike! Now THERE'S a thought!

It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep yourself open and aware to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open."

I've knit on the stationary bike in the gym at my apt complex, but I kept going slower and slower. I guess I will have to just watch E! an work it. (I don't have cable, so it is a treat to watch trash tv )

No, I am not ashamed that I have a major crush on a man who dressed in tights and made faces for most of the 80's, and now plays a crippled drug addicted doctor...and is almost the same age as my father.
