If you own a fitbit and knit, you can enter the calories burned from knitting into your database averages out 160 calroies an hour burnt

Everybody tells me that they would love to knit, but they don't have time. I look at people's lives and I can see opportunity and time for knitting all over the place. The time spent riding the bus each day? That's a pair of socks over a month. Waiting in line? Mittens. Watching TV? Buckets of wasted time that could be an exquisite lace shawl. ~Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, At Knit's End: Meditations for Women Who Knit Too Much

This was terrific! Thanks so much for sharing. I actually think it's great when somsone with a sedentary hobby (like knitting, reading, etc) balances it with excercise. I think since the book Knit Red came out and shed some light on heart health, it's gotten people talking about how inactive some knitters are, and I hope it inspires them to get off the couch for a few minutes before picking up the needles!
