I just read the following on the Lionbrand Blog - Get out your knitting needles. An afternoon of knitting can burn more than 500 calories (at a rate of about 100 an hour). So along with the supposed 510 calories I burned doing my housework today + the 1 hour walk I just came back from I can have another piece of christmas cake without any guilt!!
I am determined to finish my leaf pattern blanket this weekend, only 5 more squares to knit, then sew it all up. Will actually be glad to see the back of it!
Oh and I forgot to say I joined the Medway Craft Group yesterday afternoon, what a great group of ladies, they made me feel very welcome, and restored my faith after my experience in Cambridge. I look forward to the next meeting.
