I play the piano too!! Have you all ever tried playing the organ? I took lessons a few years ago and it has been the most difficult thing I ever took up. Once I got past the pedals it was a lot easier! It's so hard to get used to playing notes with my feet, but it's actually a lot like dancing.
Come to think of it though, I am a lousy dancer.
I am currently knitting the Sally's Favorite sweater from The Knit Stitch by Sally Melville. It is a summer sweater and oversized and I'm using cotton/linen blend which is really weird, I usually work with wool. I usually don't knit things in pieces that get sewn together, I prefer Elizabeth Zimmerman designs. But, this book is all garter stitch and I love garter lately. I also have a garter stitch cardigan on needles that I started three years ago. It will get finished some day, but come to think of it, it's way too large for the size I plan on being in another year. Oh dear. Oh, and I also have started the scarf from the Melville book in yarn that coordinates with the linen sweater.
I have a local knit shop that has a Knit Night and I love to go there for that. Well, I did love it until my sister started going. But that's a whole nuther story. It is really helpful to have a group to meet with. Most yarn stores have similar groups and if they don't, they should!
Yesterday I received a big bag of yarn from a friend from Knit Night. She remembers that I told her about a year ago when I didn't have anything to knit that I would make her one of the Adult Surprise sweaters of EZ design. So now I have a project to finish before my own nice summer sweater. Sigh.
Yes, I remember Uncle Buck! I wonder what happened to him. He wasn't posting there so much when I was there. It is hard to remember exactly who was there. I remember John C, was it? I wonder what happened with him. He had lost a whole bunch of weight, got married, then gained it all back and was in the process of losing it again.
