Always keep something with you - small project - dishcloths work cotton -small and not alot of emotional investment if it "falls" off the needles. You could always hide in the closet to knit til they are all in sports and you will have tons of waiting time at practices. lol

after bedtime and just make sure everything is put up out of sight out of mind. My youngest last summer kept pulling my knitting needle out of the scarf I was making because stupid me kept leaving it on the coffee table.

I knit alot in the car when my husband is driving and the kids are buckled up, and I use bamboo needles. They don't slip out as easily! My 2 year old daughter is a destroyer, so I knit between her bedtime and mine.

Nap time! The minute my toddler is in bed, I pick up the needles. I supplement my knitting with some cleaning so I don't feel like I'm slacking too much, but it's the only time I can do it without her trying to help :)
With my older two, I literally stopped crochetting/knitting when they were toddlers, but I picked it up when they got older.

Small projects on circular needles. I have kids 5, 3, and 16 mos. I have a sweater that has been sitting around for months, but I can finish smaller projects (hats, legwarmers in worsted yarn) much quicker. I started using circs for everything because they help my carpal tunnel, but I have seen the added benefit that they are harder for kids to pull out of projects. I have also developed a high tolerance for mess. Sometimes you just have to leave those dishes in the sink and sit down and work on a few rows.
