I'm gonna write my dissertation on knitting!!
I just talked to my adviser and he suggested I "write about what I know" and I'm writing about informal learning communities (I'm i nthe school of Education -Ed for adults not k-12) and he said "your in that stichin and bitchin thing right? Write about that and how feminism informs the learning that takes place there." YIPPPEEEEEEEE!!!!!!! I can finally write what I want!!! OK now I have to go find literature.

OMG, that's awesome! I'm so jealous. I don't think my accounting professor would let me write a paper on knitting. So sad.

That is just wonderful I am writing my dissertation too and unfurtunately I couldn't include any knitting. My field is theatre research and I was kind of pushed to pick a topic in a day or two. I had to think quick and not very creative. But when you publish your dissertation I sure want to read it!!!!
