knitting behind the wheel

So, for those who don't know, I live on an agricultural island 10mi N. of DT Portland, Oregon. Usually pretty sedate, around this time it becomes the land of pumpkins. Combine 3 truck farms with one bridge, (currently being replaced) and you are looking at a line of traffic 3+ miles long waiting to get off the bridge. 1 HOUR, 45 MINUTES for what usually takes 3 minutes, tops! Thank god the knitting was in the bag next to me: Knit 30 stitches, move 5 feet. Knit a row, move 20 feet. I'm getting to the point where I NEVER want to be without at least a sock to work on. Wasted time drives me NUTS! My Ranger isn't a very roomy place to work in, I have to admit, especially with the gym bag, change of clothes, knitting bag, portfolio, laptop, jacket, etc etc etc on the seat next to me.
