I like to take a craft project with me if I am going away for a few days, or even for a day trip. It can be hard to find ways of transporting your project so here are a few ideas.
Firstly from Gingerbread Snowflake here is a very well thought out traveling box for hexagon patchwork. I have my own way of carrying mine around, but not quite as good at this.

Knitting and crochet can be quite easy to carry around, especially if it is always kept in a bag ready to pick up as you are running out the door! I am usually in the middle of a crochet blanket project which can get a little too big to take out. Making individual granny squares is a good compromise, you can then make them into a blanket when you are back home. On long car journeys (when I am not driving!) I have been able to make really good progress with granny squares.
This organised crafting kit idea from Urban Craft Collective means you would always have the means to knit or crochet wherever you were. Have a look at their website for more on-the-go craft ideas, their aim is to get people crafting in public.
