Whenever you start a new project, you might want to prepare a tote bag, with the following supplies in it, to keep your project in until completion. In addition to the smooth, soft tote bag where your yarn will stay clean and snag-free, you might want to have the following items on hand: 1) yarn or tapestry needle, 2) stitch markers (if you're working in the round), 3) measuring tape, 4) scissors, 5) reading glasses, and 6) a row counter or calculator (if a large or intricate project). You might want to set up a bag for each project you're working on if there's more than one so that it is self-contained and ready to go when you are!
