One of the things I brought home are some of Dad's CDs. A lover of music for sure, his greatest love was reserved for the Big Band/Dance music, seconded only his love for Dixie Land Jazz. Music was played at home, 24/7 - the louder the better. He thinks his bad hearing is a result of the bombs during the war. However, those gigantic speakers played a role, I am sure.
Last night I created a few playlists and as I type I am listening to one I dubbed War Time. Vera Lynn, Glenn Miller, Artie Shaw and the like. With a few speeches by Winston Churchill and 'Ike' Eisenhower thrown in for a full dose of patriotism. The kind of music that makes you sit up straighter.
There was a bit of knitting done - I finished Kitimat.
Free pattern on ravelry.
Mine is knit with stash yarn. The white yarn, long ago, lost it's label. The green, however, is a 100% Peruvian Wool from Diamond's Luxury Collection.
It is a fun and - most important for me over the last few days - easy knit. One of those pieces that looks almost as good on the wrong side as on the right side.
