I have mites on all my outdoor plants, rose bush, etc. My question is, if I am around them outside, will I bring them in on my clothes and infect my indoor houseplants?

This is certainly a possibility. One thing you can do is hose down all your plants with water, including the ones indoors, to knock the mites off. Then treat the plants with neem oil. It is safe to use on ALL the plants and safe for you as well, but will effectively eliminate the pesky spider mites.
