I am walking along the shoreline of Great Salt Lake, the scent of brine is thick in the air. As my feet scuff the dark grey sand, a bright glimpse of pink shines through—a hidden underlayer of blush salt like a glimmering secret shrouded by dull monotony. My own secret the lake has confided in me. An expanse of archaea lies inches beneath my feet, undiscovered.
Hidden Salt Mittens with a secret burst of color in the lining inspired by the enigma of GSL. (Thanks to @blazingneedles for helping me get the discontinued yarn for this and @gslinstitute for all the knowledge about archaea.)
