This is slightly off-topic, but as you seem to be such a musical and generally cultured lot, i thought you might be interested in this. My partner's organised a community performance of Handel's Messiah this weekend in Inverness in Scotland...we've asked lots of friends to get involved and we've been inundated with keen participees so it looks like fun.
As part of the general fun, we've got some great Handel's Messiah bags done for the weekend which I think (obviously) would be ideal knitting bags. If anyone's interested, let me know.
