Super-Infinite: The Transformations of John Donne - Winner of the Baillie Gifford Prize for Non-Fiction 2022
About this deal
It seems like a lot of the free infinity scarf knitting patterns out there are a little on the plain side. Drax the Destroyer is a reluctant but valued member of the Guardians of the Galaxy with devastating close range attacks for super-charged adventures. Ronan the Accuser wields the powerful Universal Weapon to crush all that resist him in his ongoing quest of tyranny.
With a bit of knitting wizardry, you can use basic stitches to make this cute inifinity scarf have slanted lines instead of straight lines.
We are on safer ground concentrating on what is not conventional and predictable – and there is no shortage of that in Donne. Donne presents an interconnected world, both human and more-than-human, “not as a burden but as a great project”, she says – recommendation enough, we might think, in a culture so damagingly confused about how we are involved in our material setting.
Peter Quill, or Star-Lord to the Intergalactic community, is a bit of a rogue, but his heart is in the right place. In his Paradoxes, Donne pushed arguments to often ludicrous limits, comparing women to “fleas sucking our very blood”.Try it out with a wool yarn as recommended and you can learn how to wet splice ends together, so you won’t have to go back later to weave them in!
