Knit New Haven

My wife and I just completed a trip from St. Louis to New Haven CT to visit our son who just began a Masters Degree in Flute performance at Yale's School of Music. We drove to take in the fall foliage and were not disappointed. Spectacular! He had a concert in New Haven on friday and sunday at Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center and we went to hear him play with the Philharmonia Orchestra of Yale with John Adams as guest conductor with the Brentano String Quartet. The program was Stavinsky's Orpheus, Adams' Absolute Jest and Beethoven's Symphony No. 4 in B flat major, Op. 60.

Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow. . .

I head off to my journey driving from Chicago to my new home in central Florida. I am staying with one of our knitting buddies in Atlanta, Lou (AKA olddancer on Ravely) and I am really looking forward to that. The wine is in the car and so is my knitting stuff. It's funny. With all the items that I handled, and I handled all of them, it brought back so many memories. It's amazing how we have "snapshot" moments in our lives that come flooding back to us as one touches an item, or smells a scent. I also found things that I lost many years ago and eventually bought new.

Spirit Day

Hi everyone -
Putting on my social justice hat for a moment to encourage everyone to wear purple tomorrow in support of at-risk youth, especially those who are LGBTQ, for what is now known as "Spirit Day".
I first mentioned this about 4 years ago here on MWK and decided it was time to bring it up again.

Favorite knitting bag?

I currently have a large knitting bag that will hold a lot of stuff...right now it's holding all kinds of notions in different zippered pockets, a drop spindle and some roving, a couple books, and three different knitting projects. It's great for carrying a bit of everything, but I often would like something smaller that would hold just my current project as well as a few essential notions. This week I came across something called a Sock Sack which looks pretty great.
