  • Bring knitting to your kids' sports practices

  • Knit during tele-conferences

  • When planning a vacation itinerary you include stops at local yarn shops

  • When packing for a trip you always leave room for the projects you're taking and the delicious possibility of buying more yarn as souvenirs
