Lallygagging around - not!

Just so you know there has been no lallygagging even though I haven't blogged in a while, I thought I would let you see where the sleeves are:

For some reason, none of these colors are really true. This is Lavold Hempathy in Rose. There is a slight thread of grey running through and the pink is fairly muted.

We have just finished a week of difficult rehearsals and performance with the Richardson Symphony and a concerto performance (Marcello Oboe Concerto in C Minor) on a recital program so my knitting has not been moving as fast as I would like.

Here is a shot so you can get a perspective on how long the sleeves are. The others who have knit this sweater have noted that the sleeves were too long. That is a great head's up and I will try to judge as I get closer to the top. I have been knitting this as a 2 person KAL with Sherri. It has really been fun to encourage each other along and compare notes as we go and also really nice to get to know her.

My goal is to wear this to Indiana when we visit on Nov. 10 for my mother in law's 90th birthday celebration. Will I make it?

The next performance is tomorrow night - Brahms German Requiem. The Dallas Chamber Orchestra is accompanying the Plano Civic Choir in the performance. For a non-professional group of singers, they sound especially grand! It should be a moving evening.

Tomorrow morning is a recording session were I get to play with my dear friend and colleague Silly Ewe aka Sharon. It should be fun. I guess I better get in my studio and make some recording quality reeds for the morning.

Have a great weekend, y'all and leave me a note before you leave :-)
