Oh, baby baby!

Last night I decided a little change was in order. Isn't the new layout cute and festive? I like it. :) Mad props to Mela and her creative template skilz. I could probably make a cute layout myself if I learned just a little more CSS, but I'd rather spend that time crocheting and knitting, so I'm really thankful that people like Mela offer such great stuff to the masses for free. Yay! Spring-y! Yes, I'll admit, I was sorely tempted by the Hello Kitty layouts.

I also made the second pair of baby booties last night. Same pattern as the last ones, different yarn. I like the contrasting cuff on this pair.



So, two cute gifts done. Now I can get back (again) to my WIPs. I swear I'm going to say that for the rest of my life.

I'm trying desperately to get some results that I can present at the Midwest Protozoology Meeting in St. Louis at the end of this month. I'm afraid it's not going to happen. I shouldn't be too upset -- it's extremely rare to have a poster during a rotation, but I was really hoping that my project was straightforward enough and relevant to Tetrahymena researchers that I could pull it off. Oh well. I'll keep trying for the next week. Maybe I'll be surprised.

Now my blog has little bugs like my lab does! Different bugs, to be sure, but! Bugs! Yay!

Love the new look! I was hoping to go to a spring motif soon, but we're expecting 10 inches of snow today and tomorrow, so I'll stick with Mr. Snowman for now.

I like the new look. Hmmm, maybe I should jump on the "change the template" bandwagon, too. I've had the same one for over a year...
