Do you really have a big problem with people knitting during your swimming lessons?   Tongue

Haha, no, but the paying attention bit is an issue.  I can  understand why teacher's feel more in control when there's eye contact going on.

I honestly can't abide not doing something just for the teacher's comfort.
ESPECIALLY in college.  You're PAYING for the education, so why stroke the professor's ego?  They make enough, and if knitting or something honestly helps you learn, then do it.  You're paying (too much) for the information, absorb as you will.

I knit all the time in college... in all honesty it keeps me awake and I take notes I just put it down while I write something dow. Studies have proven that knitting helps students learning but I think it just varies on the student... we all learn differently... If I wasn't knitting I would be day dreaming instead of paying attnetion in class...

My newest knitting spot... sitting in the school parking lot picking up my preschooler! We have just shy of a half an hour wait... so I knit. I think it kinda ticks off the parking lot natzi who wants everyone to hurry... even hurry while waiting... All the cars cram into the parking lot, in lanes like when you're going on the ferry, they give us these little signs that go in your window that say, get this, LOADED, when apparently you are ready to leave the parking lot. I place my sign nice and neat in the window and promptly get ignored, so I knit some more, and am patient. I really think that rides right up that parking guy's flourescent yellow vest! Hee hee!!!
Happy knitting!!![/size]

I knit on public transport, mostly. Buses, trains, busstops.

And in front of the TV.

It basically depends on what I'm doing and what level of concentration it takes for me, but this year (at uni) I generally don't knit in classes because it deprives me of eye contact and since the classes are so friggin' big I would feel out of touch with what we're doing. It's also very notes-heavy, and a lot of it requires my full concentration. So I will doodle while listening, but I won't knit because it's too over the top. I did knit in my school last year, and it did help my concentration back then? But I wasn't knitting stuff I found difficult, so it was all about mechanics. It might also have something to do with the fact that we didn't get any grades at that school. Now I have to pay some level of attention to what I'm doing. I do knit everywhere else, though - on the bus, in the park, in restaurants, with friends. I love knitting!

Lots of regular people don't realize that knitting and crochet actually helps with listening instead if being distracting.

I knit at coffee houses, during the previews of movies, on the bus, in line at the store, waiting for my meal while out to eat, waiting for a band to play at a concert...

On the bus, lunch room at work.  At my old job, at my desk at work.  Cafes, restraunts, pretty much anywhere.
