2 March 2008: Projects and Concerts

I celebrated Leap Day by finishing some projects and restarting others. It was a good way to finish off the day that makes up for all the 1/4 days in the previous three years. Here is the "cuff" of a mitten that I restarted. It's a Gotland Island Mitten pattern and I've been wanted to knit it for a long time. It took me a while to find the right yarn and small enough needles.

And today, I went to see Traditions and Beyond - featuring the Edmonton & District Pipe Band, Strathcona School of Dance, Sean Somers, and Celtic Fusion Illusion. I went primarily to see my cousin play (CFI) but I was blown away by the concert and the blend of rock, bag pipes, drums and dance. It was a great event and well worth the ticket price. I guess I wasn't the only one who thought so; the Winspear Centre was full.
