Things are busybusy chez Neels these days. I’m playing in a chamber music concert this afternoon in the Academy. It’s a dry run for our exam on Thursday. I really enjoy the piece we’ve prepared – a Khachaturian trio – and I think we play well together. I’ve been battling on and off with a cold all week. Yesterday was a bit rough because I felt very unwell but still managed to get through about five hours of practice.
You can’t work all the time though, so I have been knitting onto my mum’s shawl during break time.
This is quite a large-scale lace pattern. The repeat is spread over 36 rows, and I have only completed two and a half repeats so far. It’s growing nicely though, and I think it will look fantastic when I’ve finished it.
Nothing else on the go since I finished my Jitterbug socks! I’m looking forward to finishing off my ten or so UFOs after my exams 😀 I have four sweaters that are missing a sleeve. Two weeks sounds like a long time to wait, but hopefully it will be over before I know it. I probably won’t have very much knitting to show over the next while so my plan is to write up some book reviews. I have received a lot of books over the last month and think most of them are worthwhile reviewing. First up: a review of Charmed Knits! A must for every Harry Potter Knitter out there!
