Braided Wristlets Class Debut, singing, and more

I had a super busy weekend, and knittingly, this was the highlight.

I taught my new Braided Wristlets class at Twisted. I designed this pattern to be a workshop in herringbone and other braids, two color stranded knitting, and color dominance. We did cover all these things, and had a great time, too. And I made a good start on another one of these for me.

I’ll be teaching this class at Oregon Flock and Fiber Festival in September. It will be an all day class on Saturday, September 24. Come and learn new skills with me!

But the weekend wasn’t all knitting. Sunday was Pentecost, and I organized and led music with the Pie Birds for worship. (The Pie Birds are a 3 part harmony group with guitars and mandolin: My friends Claudia and Becky and me.) So much work, so much fun. We sang Somewhere to Begin for the prelude; link provided if you want to give a listen. We closed the service with Turning of the World, with the congregation joining in.

We had a guest chorus from the Randolph-Macon Academy in Virgina sing for us. What a talented group of young people! They sang We Sing and All Creatures of Our God and King (not the version you might expect). Really wonderful. And they joined our choir for Spirit Come Down; it was so much fun to have all these voices singing with us.

I needed a recovery day on Monday!

    I enjoyed listening to the music – good music!

    I sing (mostly acappella barbershop chorus, some for church/worship, and I’m quite happy to find more good music to share with my chorus & other places!

    Thanks very much!

    • You’re welcome! Singing is such a great community builder. I’ve been singing with a community group, and it’s very fun. My digital recorder ran out of storage during our singing party, or I’d share with you my new favorite song. I’ll have access to it in a couple weeks from another source, can’t wait!
