TIF March challenge: swirling ideas

I'm going to work on finishing up a knitting project today but then will need to put all knitting aside to work on the TIF challenges.

My early March thoughts had to do with snow: (details, details!)

I was thinking this morning about "the color of snow" and of course found some Google information on refractive light and all of that. But for another take on snow color look at this young poet's poem "why is the color of snow".

But we also have the first snow crystal photos by Wilson Bentley, studies of snow crystals to aid in computer design, the spring snowflake flower , 3-D cutout snowflake patterns, a knitted snowflake tea cosy, and Paula Nadelstern's snow crystal quilt (photo from her site)
