I spent my morning in cell culture lab, using bovine fetal bone cells (I'm really simplifying here, makes the splainin easier). we got to stick fun things (beads, yarn, pennies, sand, etc) in little well plates and then put the cells in with them. We're going to see how the cells respond to different media (fun things) to test theories on what you can stick in the human body and not regret. It was quite exciting. I feel like some sort of god. Or maybe just a cool evil scientist.
In other news, the shawl is still never ending. I'm 3 rows closer. 5 left....then the border. I've reached that point where a lot of my time is spent chanting "I think I can I think I can", and "I love this project, I want to finish it", and things like that while counting to five....progress is slow. I'd show you pictures but I doubt it's going to look a whole lot different than the last time you saw it. Pile of sparkly yarn about sums it up. Woo crochet lace.
I finally cracked last night under the pressure and whipped up a motif for my CAL. It's pretty excellent. The color here sucks, but there you have it.
