Plane airport Knitting is different than car knitting. 

Socks are not that good for me to knit in the car. Dishcloths, ok, but cotton yarn hard on hands. 

  1. Not much looking at work—simple 
  1. Lots of garter or stockinette. 
  1. Sport weight or heavier. Not splitty yarn 

What do you keep on hand for knitting while in the car?
