By a show of needles... er hands...
how many of you take your knitting to work?

I just can't seem to leave mine alone LOL! Or if not knitting at work, surfing yarn store sites?

well i almost always have SOME knitting in my bag but i rarely touch it at least not the full time joint. The part time place i can sometimes when we are all caught up on everything or i am in a training session.

surprisingly, i don't surf that many yarn sites...well besides this one. I may take a glance at shops online but i have what i think are a couple of great Local LYSs so i don't feel the need to stray very often!

I always have knitting--I don't knit in the classroom unless there's only one or two kids there and nothing else to do, but there is a period of the day when they're in the rec room, so I can recreate, too. Plus if I have few minutes at lunch, or if there's a meeting after school.

I don't look at yarn sites much anymore because I need to save money and I'm such a sucker for sales.

I have a big enough purse that I always have a skein of yarn and needles in it...I carry a Vera Bradley tote as my purse so I can keep my current project in it too. I don't have much time to knit during the day at work but sometimes I can sneak a few rows....

I carry it to work. In Fact I started using a bag I got from a conference in January (a messenger type bag) to carry stuff in. It got so full (books, patterns printed off etc) that I had to leave it at home, right now I have a small plastic carrier with my knitting in it - its going everywhere with me in case I get a spare second or two to knit =D

As I work in a call center, we're allowed to read, knit, talk, etc. when not on the phones. So.. I usually can be found knitting between calls, which really help on the frustration from the people calling in needing help, yelling, etc. My boss is great with it,and encourges we do something to relax while waiting on the next call. I've worked solely on my daughter's afghan there and I'm really surprised by the amount of work I've finished.

I can't knit at work, but I usually bring it with because two of my co-workers are knitters -- I love to show what I'm working on and see what they're working on too :D

I don't knit "at" work per se but I often have a sock or something small that I keep in the car. If I have a few minutes between hearings or a chance to go drive to the local park I'll hall it out and knit. Its a great chance to decompress from people complaining and yelling at me.

I have my knitting with me right now at work. I have alot of free time and my boss would have me doing menial tasks if I didnt look busy. Luckily for me, the way my desk is situtated, I can knit socks great without being found out. And if she's out (just like today and tomorrow) I just bring in anything to knit because I'm good for the whole day! I've finished half a dishcloth so far today. Hopefully by the time I leave in a few hours, I'll almost be done! I'm so bad!
