I do all the time, I think it has a lot to do with the fact that the computer is how I learned First here for the basic knit and purl (and I am surprised that they still work after the number of times I replayed them!)
Then, right after I learned those two stitches, I made Silvers socks and needed to follow each each stitch and had to have the pattern on the screen for weeks. I think it's more habit now than anything else, but I like (and would rather) to have the pattern on the screen rather than printed.
I Wish the FT clogs could be have been downloaded rather than printed on that awful blue colored card stock. That is part of the reason mine still aren't finished With the problems I have been having with my eyes, it's really hard for me to read the pattern.
Sorry for the novel, I seem to be getting carried away a lot lately here.
