Let me hear ya!
My sweet little Ali knows how to make her mother happy. She came home from school yesterday and tossed two pieces of sheet music under my nose and said, "They're solos." She'll be performing them at the solo and ensemble competition in about a month. One is a song from Les Miserables (I don't remember the name) and the other is a song in French. Some sort of theme? Happy, happy, happy me!
My dental ordeal is over. The permanent crown feels great and my choppers are clean and polished. She did a full mouth x-ray and other than a possible touch of arthritis in my left jaw, everything looked fine.
I knit one round on Natalya last night and then realized that I'll probably be able to work on it at work today, so pulled out St. Brigid instead. I'm closing in on the sixth repeat and a quick hold-up-and-comparison of the length to the sweater I was wearing tells me that I'll be doing a seventh. I'll do more precise calculations very soon. I don't think it's unreasonable to think that I could have this piece off the needles this weekend. That would leave one more piece just like it, sleeve saddles and collar to go! It's still going to be a while, but I'm catching a glimpse of an FO at the end of the tunnel.
We'll be looking at February next week! Have a great weekend everybody.
