I ended up finding funding to continue my studies, I'm very excited to report that I'll be working with a group of researchers that are printing functional human organs. Pretty much my dream come true!
These last few weeks I've been gradually working on one project, quite possibly the most horrifically ugly project ever.
The story behind it is that one morning I woke up, put my feet on the floor, and decided that I really wanted a soft mat to step onto to start the day right. Isn't it wonderful that as crafters, we can make just about anything we can imagine?
Knit just didn't seem sturdy enough for floor mat material, especially with the force of destruction that is my kitty around (she will see a kitty-sized sled). So I decided to attempt crocheting again, and after some initial confusion about moving on to the next row, I got the hang of it.
This is all scrap yarn (where does it all come from?!), but I think I'll have to buy yarn for the edging.
And now I bring you creepy kitty...who suddenly gets interested in something, I have no idea what.
I've begged her to never make that expression again, it is just too disturbing, like she is plotting a truly horrible death for me.
