A Musical Interlude

On Sunday evening, Bill and I strolled up the street to hear Angela Hewitt perform at Sydenham United Church as part of the Grant Hall Concert Series organized by Queen's University. Deja vu. Angela's father was the organist and choirmaster at Christ Church Cathedral in Ottawa and I grew up hearing Angela perform from an early age. I can remember watching a CBC TV programme about her performance with the Toronto Symphony when she was about age 10. She still doesn't disappoint. Lovely performance, especially of the Bach Three-Part Sinfonias, which one doesn't often hear.
My turn today to perform some Bach, in a MUCH more modest capacity. Concert at 3:30 at the Queen's School of Computing Annual Concert. Looking forward to it.
On a knitting note (pardon the pun), here's a glimpse of the "Perth Cardi" in Diamond's Superfine Egyptian Cotton DK, colour # 71.

Discontinued, unfortunately. There's not enough to make long sleeves. There may not even be enough to make the border. Necessity may have to be the mother of invention, but, like Scarlett O'Hara, I'll worry about it tomorrow.
