    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.
