I was on a jury about a year ago, and I found it to be a very rewarding experience.

In Massachusetts, our employers are required to pay us for the first 3 days, and if the trial is longer, I think the court pays about $50 a day.

In the US we are given so many freedoms, and we are asked to do very little in exchange. Compared to serving in the military, it's a small price to pay for our country.

I just finished being on a jury here in San Diego, CA and wanted to let you all know about my experience knitting during the process.

Although the written materials about jury service included knitting and embroidery needles along with other prohibited items, I had no trouble bringing in and using my size 0 bamboo sock needles, and my #8 Denise circs. I also saw a woman doing counted cross stitch in the jury lounge with no problem. She told me that they did have a look at her small scissors, but let them through.

After being selected to be on the jury I knitted during all the breaks out in the hallway with no problem at all.

Between finishing a sock, starting a dishcloth, and sitting on the jury of a very interesting trial with some pretty cool fellow jury members, it was a great experience start to finish. I'd be glad to do it again anytime!
