Six Sox and Knitting Olympics event

Here is the news of the weekend. After a long rehearsal Friday night, I was able to go back to the hotel, flip on the TV and cast on for my Olympic event, The SIX SOX Knitalong sock. I love this pattern and after frogging only a few times...because my brain does shut off after rehearsals, I came away with this. I have decided to bead every repeat instead of every other, but the rest is the same as the pattern so far. This will be a prezzie for some unsuspecting Sockapalooza Pal!

On the oboe front, the concert was a lot of fun this weekend. We had the honor of sharing the stage with none other than Pepe Romero playing Rodrigo. It is a wonderful piece if you don't know probably do and don't realize it. An emotional roller coaster of a piece. He received several ovations and did two encores. The rest of the program was Debussy Prelude and Bruckner Symphony 1. It is the second time I have performed the Bruckner and it felt like an old friend from the first rehearsal. Our soloists in the group on all of these pieces were just spectacular this concert.!!!!

The sock looks lovely. I'm sure the recipient would love it.

I found your blog through Marina's link. loved the beaded wrist warmers, and your Mary Tudor is GORGEOUS!
I'm trying to figure out where you are playing in a symphony - must be south of where I am in St Louis, our winter has been warm but not quite that warm. David Robertson has recently mixed things up here a bit.
Happy Olympic knitting.

Those socks will do your pal proud!

I took up oboe in high school (eons ago) when I got bored of the clarinet. Had to revert back to the clarinet come marching band season, though. Double reeds just don't do well on a football field. Ha!
