Here is Tilia as of last night:
Love this yarn: soft, squishy and pretty.
This week has been quite an experience in other ways - I have been coughing and wheezing to a point where it is bothersome. Being an Oboist who must be especially able to breathe well, I decided to go to a pulmonary specialist to see if he could figure out what is going on. He changed my blood pressure meds (coughing is a side effect!!) and gave me inhalers and nose spray. The inhaler helps, but the nose spray is gross. I have tests scheduled on Wednesday to see if this is asthma (runs in the women in my family) or what. Unfortunately I was a smoker for 20 years as the dr. so pointedly reminded me. I will let you know what transpires. Please think good thoughts.....
On the exciting news front - I have been offered an adjunct faculty position as oboe instructor at one of the state universities. Yes - I accepted! Now I am scrambling around trying to figure out what to write for my course syllabus.
As you see, things in our house have been pretty interesting this week..... I always love your comments, so if you have anything at all you want to say - please, please, please sign in and say it!
Talk to y'all later in the week.

When we returned home, they looked like this:
The pattern is Almost Argyle from Knit Picks.
And then I had nothing else on the needles, I decided to begin this:
It is Tilia from Elsebeth Lavold's Designer's Choice Book Eight.
And I have this much done:
I am using Hempathy in Rose.
So after lovely relaxing vacation, we are back in gear.
Students are all attending their lessons, schedules are firming up for the start of school, symphony contracts are coming in with repertoire lists and it is HOT, HOT, HOT here.
Sounds like August to me! Have a cool week y'all.
