I am in the same pot as most everyone on here...

waiting at the doctor's/dentist office
baseball/softball practices & during games on weekend long tourneys
meeting with girlfriend at a B&N or Starbucks
during Wednesday & Sunday evening services w/ preachers blessing
on my school bus while waiting for the kids to be dismissed from school & also when I am on athletic field trips you will find me in the stands with needles in hand rooting on the kids. The kids call the the Knitting Bus Driver ...and of course have put in their orders for things.

I always make sure I have a project with me no matter where I am going just in case I find myself waiting with time on my hands.

I almost feel guilty knitting in public places like coffee shops and stores. I feel like I"m taking up space for customers that could be there to buy stuff.

When I had an hour bus ride to and from work I would bring small projects to knit on the bus.

As long as you are still drinking a coffee or ordering another one I would see no problem getting comfy in a good chair at Starbucks and knitting. Once the coffee is gone I'd either get another or leave.

I love to knit in airports! It's usually a long wait so I just turn on my iPod and knit away. I used to fly a lot out of San Jose and it got to the point where the custodial staff recognized me and always asked me about my projects

KIP & Heirloom Crafts

In my experience, seeing anyone KIP is rare. My mother, her sisters, and my grandmother all crocheted but they only did it when they were in their homes. I think my mom's SIL (to uniquely identify her) was the only one who knit and didn't crochet. As far as I know I am the only son (out of three) and grandson (out of eleven) that knows how to crochet or knit. I'll have to ask around and see if any of them know either of these skills.

In my family, I consider crochet and knitting to be heirloom skills. I've offered to teach my children to crochet or knit. I've taught one of my daughters to crochet, but she hasn't finished a project yet. My wife only knows how to chain stitch. She has trouble learning how to work back into the chain for the first row.

I KIP or at home when ever I can. So I always try to take a project with me anytime I leave the house. If I get comments they are mostly questions from women.

Stitch Markers
I absolutely love the idea. I want to make some for myself. I am a Wood Badger (it's a scouting thing) and want to find some beads in my critter to make some of these. They are awesome! Any suggestions on what size findings to use and what other equipment is needed?
