Knitting the Camino

For those of you not on the Glbt knit list, or who have not seen this mentioned on Ravelry, I'm blogging my experiences as i prepare to walk the Camino de Santiago in Spain, a journey of 800 km. I will be starting the camino on May 6, but have been blogging about it since late March. I am taking the opportunity of fundraising for AlzheimerBC on the blog. You can read the blog at

Hi Nigel:
Four years ago my partner and I walked the Camino, beginning from St Jean-Pied-du-Port and ending at Finistere. If your experience is even half as rich and renewing as ours then you will an extraordinarily happy man. I know that I wouldn't be able to knit and walk at the same time (at least not with twisting an ankle), but I did learn to to walk and hear my own heart beat - maybe that's something like knitting :-)

Blessings on you as your continue your training and prep. If our experience might be of any practical uuse to you, please don't hesitate to message me - Phil
