favorite portable projects

What are your favorite projects that you can work on anywhere? I like to knit on a plane, in a car, when I"m dummy at bridge even at AA meetings so I keep some fairly simple, small and portable projects going at all times. A scarf will always do the trick and once I get comfortable with socks they seem like good canditates, hats are also good. So what kind of knitting do you do on the "road"?

There isn't much that I do that I won;t take along as a 'portable' project - though I have a few exceptions.

One I start binding off a lace shawl it normally stays in one location; becuase all of a sudden it seems to get 10 times larger.

When I'm working from a cone of yarn - tends not to travel.

Projects that no longer fit in a gallon ziplock (though it's amazing what WILL fit into a gallon ziplock baggie!) anyway - if they get that large they tend not to travel.

Hats and socks I would say.

Socks are easy to transport - although like Mario I also work to the gallon ziplock bag.

If I ever left my house, it would be a scarf or socks.

I just started making a ton of bookmarks and I they are by far my favorite. They're just like mini scarves, you can test new patterns on them without wasting too much time, and because they finish fast I feel productive. I've also mastered the tassel.

I am the Tassel King!

*bows* your royal highness

I have not seen pictures, pictures pictures. Are you men never going to learn to show me pictures???

I hate making tassles. I pretty much hate anything that is involved in the finishing part, seaming, grafting, tassles, weaving in ends.

Ask and you shall receive. I got really good at makin' 'em when I worked on a scarf three years ago that called for two dozen (12 for each side). I'll make your tassels, anytime. ;)
