Welcome!

Hey everyone! Welcome to my new blog! I've decided to jump on the weblog bandwagon and chronicle my adventures as I delve into my two favorite arts: music and knitting. We'll learn to love the beauty and elegance of Liszt etudes and Schubert lieder, of Fair Isle and Arans, as we learn to appreciate the necessity of dreaded metronomes and gauge swatches. With pictures, videos, and priceless commentary, a fun time will be had by all :)

Here's what I've been knitting so far this summer:







Fair Isle Hat with Noro Kureyon












Felted purse featuring Rachmaninov's Third piano concerto!













Hat with Noro Kureyon








Socks

And more socks. But these are of the cute baby variety.









Cabled throw






"Properly practiced, knitting soothes the troubled spirit, and it
doesn't hurt the untroubled spirit, either." - Elizabeth Zimmerman
Have a good day, everyone!

WOW I LOVE the music bag. All your works are lovely! I work in music so the music bag stood out the most - where did you get the pattern?

I should also tell you that you've got great legs and a very clean floor. The carpet looks new and shiny!
