Not what I'd call blizzard conditions, but nice wintery conditions. I do love a snow storm, so pretty! Just snapped this from the front door in the midst of our Northeaster.
I don't believe I've ever written about a night out, so this will be a first. A week ago Thursday I went to Carnegie Hall to hear Radu Lupu play. Sigh. Sigh. Some of the most beautiful music ever written heard in one of the most beautiful halls in existence played by one of the most beautiful pianists alive. It was so good! Radu Lupu is a very sensitive player and brings exquisite nuance to his music making. I remember the first time I heard him play Shubert. I knew pretty much then that he'd probably be my favorite Schubert interpreter. On the program that night he played Schubert, Franck, and Debussy. All of it sublime. While waiting for the concert to start I snapped a pic of the stage with the beautiful 9' Steinway. I still cannot believe that Carnegie Hall came sooooo close to being demolished. Bless Isaac Stern for saving it.
Here is a video of Radu Lupu playing some Schubert. Perfect for this peaceful, snowy evening. Long sigh.... doesn't this music just make you cry? It does me.
And finally, a status pic. Where it stands at the end of this week.

* I wound the rainbow yarn (pictured here: Rainbow skein) into a ball so I can start knitting it into a scarf.
* The large spool of red wool is ready for plying. That's the last of that roving so the spool is a little short.
* Not too much progress on the silk hanky spinning, but a bit more has been added to the spindle.
* The granny square stack is growing!
