I appear to be a Knitting Adventurer

Back when I had a full-time job, I had loads of time to read the newspapers. Oh, the irony of now finding myself, as a graduate student of cultural studies, so busy that it took me a week to find out about the death of Jacques Derrida, the father of deconstruction and postmodernism! But it's not completely my fault; what surer way to be ignored than to die on the same day as Superman? We certainly can't have two obituaries on the front page on one day -- like, what a downer! -- so Derrida didn't have a chance in North America. (Hey, even Mother Teresa was overshadowed by Princess Di.) The clever, clever Guardian deconstructs the silence: "The other kind of text message."

In knitting news, and in light of the fabulous knits to be found in the Denim People book, words cannot express how excited I am to find out that plain old Patons Classic Wool has the same gauge as Rowan Denim.

continually trying to grow as a knitter, and as
well you should since your non-knitting friends
are probably dropping some serious hints, these
