say WHAT?!

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.



  1. Sounds like a fun day to me--I'd love to be a cool evil scientist!

    My word verification word is condumb--that cracks me up!

  2. Hehehehehe. Condumb....someone naughty works in the confirmation office!

  3. Sorry the shawl is taking so long. I was going to text you about the neverending yarn issue I was experiencing earlier today. But then it ended, and it felt a bit anticlimactic.

  4. You show that shawl what you're made of, you can do it. Do it for my afghan that never made it, and for all the poor languishing WIPs lying forgotten in baskets! :D
