Advice on Interrupted Knitting Mid-Row

I like to use every spare minute knitting but I'm hesitant to pick it up when I have a few free moments if I'm not certain I can finish the row in the time available.  I've been told by several seasoned knitters that one never leaves off in the middle of a row for various reasons such as: it will leave a hole, the stitch will be misshapen or there will be a line in the knitting.  I have never read anything about this in any knitting book.  It's not like I'll leave it this way for long; I knit every day.  This fear of creating an additional problem prevents me from utilizing all those odd spare moments of the day.

I also had some yarn delivered to me at work. It's some Elsebeth Lavold Silky Tweed that I ordered to make the elephant from the toy book David got me.

He said a few times that he liked the elephant, so I'm planning on working on it here at work in secret for his birthday in May. I also got a bit extra in the grey and a skein of red, probably to make a scarf for myself at so
