Packing, last minute knitting, etc.

I'm off to Korea tomorrow, so my life has been rather dedicated to lots of rehearsals and concerts lately...I've hardly had time to pack, knit, or decide what knitting to try and take on the plane (so far I'm planning on a baby hat and a pair of socks on bamboo needles, with metal back-up needles in the checked luggage)

Anyhow, just to show that I'm still working on those Lozenge socks during rehearsal breaks:
Here they are lounging on a first row seat of A Very Famous Hall here in NYC. (I think I'm not supposed to take pics here, so I'm playing it safe. Used my crappy cell phone camera.)

I also made a reversible name bib. The general bib pattern is in this book, but all garter stitch was boring, so I knit the baby's name into it. I didn't like how the "wrong side" looked, so I picked up stitches along the bottom of the name panel on the back, knit another name in contrast color (next time will try different language), grafted it to the top of the panel, and seamed the side bits. Added buttons to match the name colors, crochetted an edge, and voila!

  1. You're totally not allowed to take pics in there!
    How was Schumann 2, conductor-less? That's amazing. You have my total respect. I am practicing the Scherzo right now, for the reasons you'd expect. What program are you touring?
