Miles and miles...

Every day that I commute to work, my knitting sits in my lap and the needles clack away.  It is beautiful uninterrupted knit time.

My constant companion...Knitting Bag:  don't leave home without it:



Yesterday, while we were traveling along, it occurred to me that there is a lot of mileage accomplished...not only on the road, but also on the needles.

Our daily work commute has a round trip total of 70+ miles.  It is no wonder the odometer on my SUV is soaring!  While contemplating this travel, it spurred me to consider how many miles of knitting I have done.

The math is quite interesting.  A mile is 1,760 yards.  The average sweater for an adult can range in yardage from 1400 to more than 2000 yards, depending on the size/style/features.  Holy Guacamole, my fingers have multiple marathons worth of knitting miles on them!

Too bad I haven't been able to figure out how to convert this knitting mileage into counting as an aerobic exercise...yet.

  1. I've often wondered if I could try knitting in stop-n-go traffic ... but with a stick shift, I decided I'd better not!
