My DH is a grad student in a subject that I am interested in as well (I took a number of classes in University). There is going to be an open lecture at the University tomorrow night, and I'm going to go with him. My question is, would it be rude of me to knit during the lecture?
I would be discrete, and I am quite capable of knitting without looking at what I'm doing, just glancing at the knitting on occasion, so I would still be attentive to the speaker. I don't want to offend the speaker, and I don't want to reflect poorly on my DH (although he says he would have no problem with me knitting). I also know it will bug me to know that I could be being "productive" during this time! When I watch TV or a movie I always have some sort of craft going, or I feel the same way. At the same time I know that a live speaker is a lot different from TV (obviously), and I don't want to be a distraction for other audience members.
Please advise me! I don't want to knit my way into e-hell!
