The concert was amazing. His group had only been playing together since February and still were quite impressive. It was especially cool to watch the kids improvising for their solos and seeing them get into the music.
Now we are preparing for recital-palooza. Tomorrow, Little Miss appears as a Ladybug in a ballet performance of "Snow White," and both Little Miss and her older brother are playing in a piano recital on Sunday. My mom is here to see it all and we're really happy to have her. I will try to post some photos later.
There are still some great skeins left from this week's BBF update, both miniskeins and llama-shetland lace, and some great wild multis in Superwash Merino Classic:
Pac-Man FeverI'm also very pleased with the JumboSox skeins: 600-yd skeins of Superwash Merino Classic, so that if you like making kneesocks or want to be sure you've got enough for a shawlette, you're covered. (I also think thirty bucks is quite a nice price, especially if you use the free shipping code on the home page!)
Otherwise, not much going on. I've got some more book reviews in coming weeks, but right now is when the knitting world starts to hunker down to get ready for fall and early winter publications, so there's lots of knitting and writing and swatching going on here.
P.S. Don't forget to toddle on over to Mindy's blog to wish her a happy, goat-y birthday!
