… and a happy new year to everyone else! I ended up taking a break over Christmas even though I didn’t intend to at all. There was not much knitting of note completed – a sleeve and a hem – but I took the opportunity to really get stuck into some other things.
The Ravel is ‘Ma Mere L’oye’ (Mother Goose Suite), a piano duet that I will be playing in the spring with a friend. The Mahler is a set of four songs that I will be playing, among many other things, with another friend, a tenor (high male voice). They are a brilliant set of songs but not at all easy. The Rice Krispies book is a German primer to help with the translation of Mahler and other related activities. Between the sleeve (above) and the hem (below), I got a lot done.
Satisfying though it may be, it doesn’t make for an interesting read so here’s something for you to think about: Verena, the German knitting magazine, is now publishing in English. I have never seen it for sale in Ireland so I was chuffed to see that they are offering a digital subscription for just $15 a year. I think it’s a great way to save a few pennies and be that bit greener at the same time! I really like Verena because they publish a really good variety of fashion, leisure and business knits, all in the one magazine.
