Seems quite a few people like to knit while driving.

*chuckles to the knit-n-shift drivers*

I don't have a car and rely on public transit. I used to spend a whole lot of money on books on my 3-4 hour train commute to work until I took up knitting again. Now I knit all the time; on the train, waiting for the train, on my lunch break.... Saves a ton of money and completly takes the stress out of my high stress job (I'm a veterinary nurse in a high-traffic hospital). I even knit on my ten minute breaks! Knitting so takes a load off, that I don't even work on projects half the time - just working samplers of new stiches is enough to do the trick.

To quote an add campaign that drives me nuts:
Lovin' it!

Roxy, that is just so incredibly funny. ! LOL!

Welcome Yellowness! I love your name. My most-used name on other forums is "Sunshine_Amy." I just love that sunny color and feeling!

This is so cool. Since I rediscovered knitting, I am much more calm and relaxed. I'm a lunch hour, tv listening, sitting-with-daughter-while-she-does-homework, passenger-in-car, hide-in-the-bathroom knitter. My fav time to knit is first thing on a weekend morning, in bed with a cup of coffee. The house is quiet, no distractions, I have my bed pillow, snuggly under the covers, aaahhhh!!!
Love this board

Welcome oshnpashn!

Knitting in bed...that sure sounds cozy! If my bedroom were sunnier in the morning, I might try it, but can't resist my sunny couch on lazy mornings.
