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.
