My big goals for February were another grant deadline for my dissertation. Reading some books and articles for my dissertation. Transcribing and then coding some data for a secondary project. Participating in the Ravellenic Games. Brewing. And, finally starting the literary podcast that my sister and I have been discussing for well over a year. I was pretty successful at accomplishing these things. As you know from previous posts, some brewing did take place. And, I made my grant deadline and got some reading done. I also transcribed some audio recordings and am about to start coding the data for the secondary project I’m working on. While the podcast is still in discussion phase, I did manage to complete the Accola shawl (post to come.) February may have been short, but it was mighty!
March is shaping up to be quite busy. I have a lot of dissertation deadlines looming. I also am working on some papers with some colleagues. I’m looking forward to those being submitted! Talking about your results is a good time! I started a shawl for my sister during her recent visit to my fair city and I would like to finish that. After that, though, I think I will be taking some time off of knitting to focus my down time on another one of my textile related hobbies: spinning. I have some really interesting color combinations I’m looking forward to trying and I would like to do some fractal spinning. I went a little crazy at the Fiber festivals last year and so I have a lot of stash to bust this year. Finally, one of my new year’s resolutions was to blog more about general linguistic topics. I hope to get the first of those posts up in the month of March.by
