Whenever I sit down to watch a movie or anything else on TV, I pick up my latest crochet project. I also keep a project in the car in a tote bag, to take with me to any appointments that I may have to wait more than just a few minutes. Any time I go out of town and stay in a motel, I take a crochet project with me to work on at night.

I've developed this over time for de-stressing, and just to keep my hands busy. I also like to sit and people watch while getting something done. I break my crochet projects into 2 categories: 1) large - at home projects and 2) small - anything I can stuff in a small bag, and take anywhere. I keep several small bags handy for the #2s.


While waiting for a doctor's appointment, the bus, a ride or anything, I have my #2 project bag. I attach it to my purse, so I can't leave one or another bag someplace. I get a little project done or finish one, and then perhaps I can begin another. Sometimes you can break up a large or a medium project, so it can become a small take along. You can decide for yourself, what size you can manage in a take along.

For 'at home' # 1's, I keep a project nearby, for when I put my feet up. I work 15 - 25 minutes each day on any large projects, and it gets done eventually. If I have to get it done in a hurry, I actually schedule the time. Depending on my daily schedule, crocheting has become an appointment with myself for de-stressing.

An additional tip: for my 'on the go bags' I keep a toothbrush container in which I keep my most used 2 hooks and small folding scissors. Since it's bright pink, it's easy to grab and put in a bag before I'm off for wherever I go.

I love to crochet and try to squeeze it in everyday, even if it's just for a few minutes. I take it wherever I go! I crochet during my lunch hour, waiting for doctor appointments, waiting in the car for the kids to get out of school, and while watching TV at night. Sometimes some projects take longer to get done depending on my schedule, but every little bit helps to get it done!

Whenever we travel, should it be a short distance or a vacation, I crochet while my husband drives. Believe me, crocheting goes really fast.


There are not as many interruptions such as a TV or excessive talking, because my husband must concentrate on driving.

What better way than to get the kids involved in a craft as well? Doing paper projects, coloring or even winding yarn balls, they are able to say they are making something, too.

I do a lot of crocheting on the go, I try to have a bag with a project ready to go for when I'm riding in the car, or bus or plane, or waiting in the doctor's office and so on. I found it was really easy to lose the patterns.
