Extreme Knitting - Trampoline Style

For this challenge, Branching Out volunteered to take the mission. In addition to being the furthest along, it's the heaviest weight yarn of the team, thus sturdy enough for the knitter be able to knit under stressful conditions. In addition, the pale green color is best suited for outdoor activities - blends in better with the foliage. If threatened, Branching Out would be able to hide from predators.

Why knit on a trampoline? Most would question the wisdom of knitting while jumping on a trampoline. As with many people in this day and age, the knitter has limited time. Given the opportunity to knit and exercise and spend quality time with DS, trampoline knitting is the perfect solution.

For those tempted to follow this exercise/knitting regimen, as with any exercise program, consult with your physician prior to beginnng.

Holy Smokes! There's no way I could knit and jump on a trampoline! That sounds pretty extreme to me!

(How many stitches did you actually knit and how many did you drop???!!!)

Thank you for visiting my blog! I appreciate the encouragement on the lace project(I tried to post a reply last week for you, but blogger was down). Your lace looks wonderful too and I love your X-treme photo -- very creative! (Need to decide on mine soon).

I think that we might be neighbors -- I live in CT too. :)
