I'm taking a MOOC at the moment that is entitled, "Archeology's Dirty Little Secrets." I'm thinking of doing a project on what surfaces after the snow melts, and what it says about different parts of town…the so-called piles of snirt (that's snow + dirt) uncover all kinds of things.
I have managed to do a little knitting. I made a pair of electric-blue bed socks for Auntie who has neuropathy in her feet pretty bad. It makes it hard for her to tell when they're cold.
I also finished the most-boring-shawl-ever. It's really quite nice, even if it was mind-numbingly tedious to knit (besides, with my wrist in a splint it was good to have something that was not particular about gauge and such). The texture and color seem to be un-photographable, but trust me, it's pretty.
And there are some bits of grass showing up across the street:
With the time change last weekend the morning light was unusual as I waited for the train Monday morning. Pretty soon it will be totally light in the morning as well as late into the evening - hooray!
Happy spring everyone!
