It’s so good to feel important to the music. Christmas music is so much better for oboists than marches. Of course, we’re still playing Jingle Bells Forever (I think I need to find Robert W. Smith and punch him in the nose), but overall this is a much more pleasant concert.
And, they got my pad fixed in time for tonight’s rehearsal!
On the knitting front, I have two Christmas gifts that are done except for the finishing work – sewing for both, a couple of beads and a little blocking for one, felting and more sewing for the other. I’m very excited about that. Soon I have to decide on a new project! I’ve got a few good candidates – I have everything for Monkey socks, though I also really want to make a pair of mittens and a hat for myself for winter. We’ll see. Also, I’m still working on the Everlasting Bagstopper. I still haven’t worked out how I’m going to attach the ribbon handles, though.
Speaking of the EB, I think I’ll go knit a few rounds. It’ll help me relax before bed. Good night!
