Knitting, Pathetique Sonata and A Poppy

31 May

1   A friend’s Mum has been knitting for the babies of Tanzania, having been inspired by my post about  KnitZTanzania and the need for little sweaters and beanie hats to stop the babies dying of hypothermia. Here are what she describes as her ‘first’  batch!  Thank you so much for joining me in this venture. If you, too, would like to join us in this project, the pattern can be found here.   The address to send them to can be found in the comments on the same page.

2   I was reminded of a beautiful piece of music, Beethoven’s  Pathetique Sonata, 2nd Movement, this evening as it was part of BBC Radio 4’s  programme Pick of the Week, this week’s items being chosen by Antonia Quirke. Just listen to Daniel Barenboim playing  and feel the calm come over you……..

3   Another Poppy is about to break free. This has to be one of my favourite photos this year!
