Is it rude to knit at a business meeting/workshop?
I had to go to a workshop for the library today. Several librarians were at this workshop and one of them brought along her knitting. Now maybe she could concentrate on what was being said, but it looked like she was doing a lot of counting and frogging. She had wooden needles, using red fun fur and was knitting what looked like a scarf. Oh, uh, I forgot what I learned today. I was watching the knitter.

Anyway, had I known it was okay to bring knitting along, maybe I would have, but it did seem a bit rude to me for someone to come along distance to teach this class and have someone sitting and knitting during the lesson. Am I wrong to think this, even if it was knitting ( and we all know that's all we think about ).

There was recently a big discussion about this same thing here. You'll see there's a wide variety of opinions on this one.
