Out the window at work, I can see the tops of an area of trees. The tops come up to about six feet below the window level. It’s a very cool effect, swaying in the breeze, fluttering. Kind of like that exhibit of butterflies as soon as you enter the NC Museum of Art. One leaf is red. That’s it. The rest are still green, but one vibrant red one. I shall call it Dulcina.


About Kristy Lamb

I recently finished my PhD in genetics at Yale and am currently a postdoc at Weill Cornell Medical College of Cornell University in NYC. I love science, people, and the fiber arts. We'll call it my muse. I taught myself to knit over Christmas break in 2002, when I was home from my sophomore year in college and was terribly bored. Despite starting with three big mistakes (very long aluminum needles, a very bad Coats & Clark how to knit book, and Lion Brand Homespun), I kept at knitting, even after that first 1/2 hour trying to tie a slipknot. Science...seems to be much the same process as the above.
