My Travel Knit Bag
Created By: Louise Keeton

I now have a bag with some sort of knitting project in it at all times. The bag has changed over time (I actually have two right now--one for larger projects and one for smaller), but I keep it packed and ready to go on a moment's notice.

Why, you say?

Because I just can't stand to sit still. My hands want to be busy when the rest of my body is forced to remain in one position for a spell of time.

I've knitted in doctor's offices, at my son's sport and marching band events, during meetings of all kinds, on planes (Never have figured out why you can take knitting needles on airplanes after 9/11, but I don't complain.), and at friend's homes while we watch a movie. I almost always knit on road trips.

In fact, my return to knitting was a car trip to go skiing in Ruidoso, NM one winter about five years ago. I bought a Lion brand scarf kit "for the trip" and tried to remind myself how to cast on, knit, and purl. It took almost the entire trip and didn't come without a lot of pulling out and starting over, but I got the hang of it again and I haven't stopped knitting.

Since then, I've knitted 60+ scarves (that the high school marching band sells for money for the group), several baby blankets, and other assorted pieces.

I'm having the time of my life and I'm thrilled that I can knit almost anywhere.
