SO NOW AMAZON seems to think that I’m interested in knitting. At least, recommendations for knitting books, knitting supplies, etc., keep showing up.

I don’t knit, I’ve never bought any knitting supplies or knitting books, and I have no idea where this is coming from. I’ve actually been buying less stuff than usual from Amazon, and the only non-book purchase I’ve made lately was not very knitting-related. Maybe they’re pushing knitting on everyone, like they did with the defibrillator? Hard to believe. I mean, I know all the cool kids are doing it, but still . . .

UPDATE: Apparently all the cool kids are doing it. Who knew?

ANOTHER UPDATE: My goodness, I mean all the cool kids are doing it! Maybe I should just surrender to the power of data-mining, like Mickey Kaus did!
