Check out #21 in  this article about 50 ways to cut 500 calories a day!  In addition to all the other benefits of knitting, we now discover that you’re using up calories as well.  And that doesn’t even count the calories you save by not eating while you knit.

    I send this blog entry to our Tuesday Knitting Group meeting at Starbucks. They loved it!! We think we might be burning more than 100 cal/hour. We model our work-in progress, get up for more coffee, pass around completed work, wave to our poor non-knitting friends who only come to Starbucks for coffee, and laugh so hard we have to run to the restroom!

    the article says knitting but is it the same for crocheting too.
