Today I'm going to write seven things about myself as promised in my previous post. First, two things I look forward to this week:
Seeing fellow knitter and blogger Born to knit tonight. We first met live about a year and a half ago after getting acquainted thanks to the internet.
A concert on Sunday with Dee Dee Bridgewater, a favourite singer I'm going to get to enjoy live for the fourth time. I love her gorgeous, rich voice (she can sound like anything from a caress to a grater), her way with lyrics, athletic scat singing, interaction with musicians and her sense of humour - all of which plus some present in this version of "Love for Sale". (It takes about 1½ minute before she actually starts singing.)
Through her albums, Dee Dee's singing is knitted into many of the things I've made since I first heard her some ten years ago.
Last, five favourite tastes, simply because I can't think of anything better to write about: lemon, ginger, garlic, cinnamon and pomegranate.
