I have read about lots of you who knit in cars/trains/buses etc so gave it a go for mysef today in the car. Well, seems i get travel sick if knitting! How rubbish, got all set up, barely managed a row before i had to ask my husband to slow down before i was sick!

That's so unfortunate.  I get tired easily of knitting in the car, but I can do it if it's something mindless that I don't have to count or pay a lot of attention to.  I'm sorry - your traveling just got more boring Sad

Try looking up more frequently - I found that if I am entirely focused on the knitting I do get a little motion sickness on winding mountain roads, but if I look up frequently and focus outside the window, I'm okay. For that reason, in a car that will be moving at speed (i.e. not my usual commute where we are stopped more than we move and when we move it is about 5 mph) I take along something that is straight st or garter so I don't have to watch it much.

Too bad if you can't knit though, really big bummer. You might find, however, that if you try just a little bit each time, you'll be able to do it a bit longer each time, as your body gets used to it....
