Do you take your projects with you everywhere?
Or practically anywhere? I am a new Southern Living at Home consultant, so I had my launch party today, and one of my guests brought her most recent knitting project! She didn't work on it of course, but it made me wonder when I would be brave enough (and have children old enough to not have to watch them every second in public! ) to just carry my knitting bag with me. (and it wasn't her purse- that was seperate) She comes to knit night at my lys, so it wasn't a big surprise, I just want to be that way too!!

I always have something with me. There are times I leave it in the car, but most of the time I pull out whatever I'm working on--nothing complicated or that needs me to refer to a pattern, but something simple.

I often wonder if I knitted in church that I would listen better. I have Adult ADD, so knitting helps keep me focused...

typically I allow myself a maximum of 3 projects at one time. Normally, one of those will be a pair of socks. I purposely bought a HUGE purse and can nicely fit the socks into my purse.

For things like sweaters, no I don't. I find that I like to work on those in large chunks of time to have a nice uniform look. So I don't take those on tours!

I _always_ have a sock with me. It has turned into a security blanket for me. Even if I don't knit a stitch, I have to have a sock or other small project with me.

Where in Northern VA are you Meri? I'm in the Manassas area.
