Yesterday I weighed the remaining yarn for the cowl and was surprised that I was already at the point of starting the ribbing. Ah yes, when you continually knit on the same project you make progress. Less than 4 inches to go.

We went the non traditional route for a walk yesterday. It was so cold that the thought of walking made me want to stay home. But we had to walk so we headed to the mall. They open the mall hours before the stores open so people can walk inside where it’s warm. There was a descent crowd so we joined in and made 3 laps around. When the stores opened we looked through a few as we made a final lap. In the end we had done nearly 4 miles and I was surprised. It didn’t seem like we’d walked that far. The mall may be our go to walking spot once or twice a week when the temperature is unbearable outside.

  2. Mall walking is a great way to get moving in the cold. I haven’t done it in a few years and should get back to it.

  3. Mall-walking is a really good idea and not something I’ve heard of before. The cowl is looking good.

    Good idea! Our nearest mall is 25 miles away, but I would walk it if I lived closer. All we have is a grocery store. Haven’t clocked that yet!

    I applaud you for making the effort. I would have just stayed home nice and warm! LOL. Today we are getting snow, so there’s nothing going to get me out in this. Good thing I have the stationary bike!

  6. The cowl looks nice! Years ago, my mother-in-law and I used to walk at the mall. When we finished our walk, we headed to the cinnamon roll shop and ate a HUGE cinnamon roll. My mother-in-law rationed we had done enough exercise to counter-act the cinnamon roll. I’m pretty sure that wasn’t the case! 😉

  8. You are making great progress on your cowl! Mall walking is a good way to get some exercise in while staying out of the weather. And then if you have some shopping you also need to do, you are right there!
