I can see that there are times where it would look rude to knit when your attention should be elsewhere, but I don't much like being told I am "not allowed" to do anything at my age!
HA! I would have said LOVE ME, LOVE MY KNITTING!!!!!!! As a close relative I would not have hesitated to "discuss" this with her further....... what exactly does she object to about your knitting??
I brought this up at my knitting class this week, while everyone did have a place or two that they would not knit at everyone agreed that there is nothing rude about knitting in a casual situation whether that is a restaurant of party.
Maybe we should forward this to "Dear Abby"!
