I am trying to knit a baby hat a month (in addition to my other projects) for donating to Primary Children's Hospital this year. Myra mentioned that she keeps her hat in the car and knits on it when she's waiting for her kids after school, etc. All those little moments add up and you can have a hat done before you know it. I thought that sounded like a good idea, so I grabbed a skein of yarn and a circular needle and cast on as we left to run errands this afternoon. 

I knit on it while Jake ran into the library to pick up a book he had on hold, and while Brian ran rolled into Ace Hardware for a new pair of gloves. 

The girls had both fallen asleep so I waited in the car while Brian ran into Target, and I finished the ribbing. 
I knit in the dark as we drove, because I don't need to look for plain stockinette. I knit a few stitches in Lowe's as we were debating which toilet to buy, but that didn't work as well because I had to keep stopping to push the cart. 

Yes, that would be me knitting while waiting for the gas tank to fill up. It kept my fingers warm while standing out in the cold winter air for at least two minutes, possibly even three! Brian just laughs at me and takes pictures.
