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:
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!!!
