I have this wonderful chemistry professor this semester who has no problem with me sitting in the front row and knitting through a two hour lecture (I can not sit still otherwise). He's always very friendly and when I come to class with different color yarn he'll enquire as to what this week's project is. Would it be inappropriate for me to knit him a scarf or hat as a thank you for letting me knit in class to give him after finals (so that he dosn't think I'm trying to manipulate my grade)?

Not inappropriate at all, and I think it's a lovely idea to thank a professor for doing something out of the ordinary. Great encouragement for him to continue that kind of open-minded behavior!

Nice touch that you're waiting until after grades are in, too.

ithink it's a fine idea. I even have a pattern suggestion......http://www.twosheep.com/helix/

The double helix scarf pattern is brilliant and very scary! I think I might do something a little simpler, he's a very basic, bare bones kind of guy. Thank you for the pattern though, I want one for myself!

I knit two baby sweaters for my advisor when his wife had twins.  I knew him quite well at the time, as I had worked for him for a couple of years, but the sweaters were very well received.  If your prof seems cool with your knitting in general, it should be fine.  Professors get gifts all the time when they write people recommendations, anyway.

I found this a pattern for "My So Called Scarf" (I think it was once a knitalong) and I think that's the pattern I'm going to go with. I'm going to swatch it on some solid color yarn this weekend to see if the pattern shows up as well as with the varigated.
