Hi there!
I know there's a thread on people in graduate school, but what about those in undergrad?

I'm a senior studio art major at Texas Tech (go red raiders!)

I know I'm not alone...who else is in college out there? =)

a fun lil blog ;)

I'm a sophomore at Columbia. I knit after my brain shuts down at night but before I'm ready to go to bed.... but I take notes in class.

I finished my BA in English last spring and knitted my way through all four years of undergrad. I managed to finish many pairs of socks during lectures.


I will walk by faith, even when I cannot see.

To Wonk, I've seen people knitting in classes of mine and most people didn't think it was a big deal. In fact, one of the professors didn't even notice (talk about an absent minded professor!). My dad is a professor and I asked him what he thought and he said that he would mind, but then again he doesn't like it when people eat in his class (perhaps I need to have a talk with him about lightening up). Having been a teaching assistant, I don't think I would mind too much if people knit during my sections. I guess in short, I'm saying try it once and see what happens!

Check out my blog!

I am a junior at Black Hills State University (BHSU). I am studying elementary education with a minor in library media. I plan to pursue my masters in Library Science (if I live that long). I always have my knitting with me in class. I knit before class an on breaks (my current professors won't allow knitting during class time).

Senior at Western Washington University, in Bellingham, WA. I'm a General Studies major, Psychology minor. I have an Associates in Arts and Sciences degree from a community college, so my upper-division classes needed to graduate were from my Psych classes. I graduate December 2006 (I still need 12 more credits). Why a General Studies major, you ask? Last summer and again this summer, I was hired by Weyerhaeuser to work in their Accounting Internship program (previous accounting experience at my mother's work: she's a tax accountant), and am permanently hired to work at Weyerhaeuser after I have my Bachelor's degree. Yep, a college student with permanent employment once I graduate. I'm very lucky, and glad that I have great connections.

I'm still in college, an art and business student. I should be graduating this year, but I took several years off to work and experience things. I started knitting etc. when I was 6 and would like to do work in textiles. Nice to see we have so many college enthusiasts! :)

ok so im not in college anymore, but i just graduated last spring and still feel like im in college :) except no classes, haha. i went to Kalamazoo College in Michigan, majored in economics. never brought the knitting to class (although i DID bring my pet hermit crab to class to keep me entertained....the teachers never knew). but we were required to go to a bunch of lectures outside of classes so i brought little knitting projects to those, like coin purses, etc. gotta sit in the back, they'll never know!

I'm a freshman and planning to major in English.

Anyone here allowed (or daring enough) to knit during classes? I haven't gotten the nerve to yet (though I'm tempted to during Phil102, not like I'm learning anything), though I do sneak it into the library and knit between classes.

I'm a sophomore at Brandeis University in Waltham . . . and I spend almost all my free time looking up yarn and possible future projects. My boyfriend moans about this all the time :)

I'm an undergrad, have been for awhile, will be for awhile longer...I've been going half time and hope to graduate and get my masters by the time my kids graduate highschool (5 years). I want to teach college English/Lit when I grow up :)

I'm an Arts student going into her fifth year at the University of British Columbia, in Vancouver, BC, this fall.

Hum, college undergrads love to knit instead of studying. And to search yarn to do the nextproject! I SHOULD be studying !!!
At my university (Laval in Quebec City), we have a lot of knitter, but none knitting circle...Too bad!
Argh, I think I have to stop my computer right now! I hide my knitting....

Someone should do a study of college knitters and see if there are correlations with grades, stress relief, and general information retention! I did my Master's thesis for an MS in Library Science on services to romance readers in public libraries (obviously had to read romances for research!) I know we can get knitting into the curriculum somehow!!

I only began knitting in the last semester of my master's studies, but the knitters were just getting together to officially form a knitting circle when I graduated. And that group was just within the library school, so I bet the number of knitters on campus was substantial. I attended University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Good luck finding knitting undergrads! I wonder if undergrads now are as distracted by just keeping up with social and peer pressure as they were when I was there. If so, college undergrads may be the best candidates to be knitters (to handle the stress) and the least likely to actually do it. Knit in public on campus, see who approaches you! (be brave)

The web of our life is of a mingled yarn, good and ill together. --Shakespeare

Count me in too! I'm a sophmore at the University of Wyoming studying anthropology.

And I really wish I was still in college. Can I count too?
