Back in my middle school and early high school years, I was quite a lemming.*
But Mooooooooom . . . EVERYBODY is wearing them.
Oh, c'mon Mom . . . EVERYBODY is going.
Mooooom, I want [my ears pierced] [my hair cut] [my jeans too tight] [to wear incredibly short skirts]. . . just like EVERYBODY.
It's okay, Mom . . . EVERYBODY is doing it.
My Mom (never one to be fooled by lemming tactics) always gave me this line, "If EVERYBODY jumped off a cliff, would you follow?"
(Of course.) (Because lemming.)
And then Margene joined.
So, of course, I looked closer.
And I discovered that this is a rather unique and very cool KAL. Because knitting (a cowl) AND fitness (walking). (But not at the same time.) (Although I saw MANY knitters doing just that at Rhinebeck.) (Ahem.)
Now, I am already a very regular fitness person. I swim and I spin and I do Pilates and yoga. I also walk my dogs.
(But I get lazy about walking them when the weather is not so great.)
So I decided that this KAL might be a great way to motivate myself to walk the dogs daily - and especially when it's rainy or chilly or I'm busy.
But also happy and healthy dogs!
Big WIN all around!
(Join us. EVERYBODY is doing it.)
* I was going to include a video clip of lemmings plunging over a cliff. But, oh man. Too horrifying.
