Let It Be
I am up to the shaping of the armholes which is why there is a box of matches pictured with Janelles lacy jumper, I have been very tempted to burn the thing!!!. You have to be so careful with this pattern while shaping and I have mentioned many times how I have a love/hate relationship with lace knitting, I am definately going through a hate stage at the moment.
I went out last night to the Princess Theatre to watch Let It Be, a concert of Beatles songs performed by John Waters, Christine Anu, Leo Sayer and Rick Price together with an extremely talented group of musicians. On the whole this was a very entertaining concert except for one thing, now reading through the list of singers above there is one name that stands out as being the most successful, maybe even the most popular and definately the most well known. Leo Sayer was a very popular entertainer both here and in the UK during the 1970's so you would consider him to be a professional, yes?? No think again, this little guy who granted is a fabulous entertainer and showman and knows how to work the stage, had to constantly keep reading the lyrics as he sang and a few times completely forgot the words. Leo please learn the songs as most of your audience know them word for word!!!
Thanks to Fitknit I am currently reading the Yarn Harlots Secret Life of a Knitter, I am loving it. She is so honest and she could be speaking about any of us as she talks about the joy and the frustrations that our wonderful craft brings. Hmmmmm that lacy jumper is springing to mind here, anyhow it really is refreshing to hear of a knitting 'guru' speak so honestly.
Have a great weekend and happy knitting xx
