Thinking Too Much

As I sit and knit, I often watch tv.  Last night it was The Nun's Story followed by Casablanca. Tonight it is Fiddled On The Roof.  
But even with my great movies, I find time to think.  Some nights I think too much. 
For example: my Sporto.  I started with 248 stitches on the body. After 4 decrease rows, I still have 240 stitches.  Each of those decrease rows are ten rows apart.  And the body is only about 6 1/2 inches long.  If you figure just the 40 rows  since I started decreasing, that's been 9600 stitches.  That's not counting arm and yoke stitches.
And the body isn't half finished yet.
That's a lot of stitches still to go.
Yikes!  Yup, sometimes I think too much.
