Klezmeroke at the Temple Club Tonight

Tuesday, February 8th, 2005

Klezmeroke, we play weird klezmer – influenced tunes.

We’re doing a show for the Icarus Falling theatre group at the Temple Club, Tuesday February 8th, two short sets, one at 9 pm one at 10 pm.

I have seen these guys play (at the Green Door). It’s amazing, high-energy, incredible stuff. Makes you want to dance and dance and dance! Some things stand the test of time and this type of music sure is doing well in that category.

Brian and I will be there. I hope you local folks consider coming out as well.

(We are also considering a run over to Dagwood’s Bar… Kalamazoo at 496, no website. Brian heard that Jen Sygit, a talented local songwriter/performer, is hosting an open mic session there around 10pm. Therefore, we just may do Temple Club at 9 and Dagwood’s at 10. Could be a lively Tuesday night! Especially for a boring non-drinker like me, two bars in one night is a lot of excitement!)

Photo is my multi-colorway Noro bag in drying position upside down! I’m quite pleased how the the three colorways worked out well together. And I am very happy with the size and shape of it now that it has shrunk. Not too big, not too small, and not so deep that you can’t find anything in the bottom of it. It measures 11 inches long, x 7 inches wide x 11.5 inches tall. I was able to block it with a chunky shoebox inside, if that helps picture it.

I’m almost done knitting the miles and miles of i-cord I’m going to use for the strap. Good thing I can knit i-cord in my sleep, or nearly so. Assembly will be later today, after I go out and buy a few things at JoAnn Fabrics.

After looking at the bag, and searching ad nauseum on the Internet making sure nobody else has used the name, I have christened the bag with a wonderful name. It’s the LynnH Watercolor Bag. Does it have enough colors in it to have my name attached? I think so! Pattern is expected to be ready sometime later this week (target date is Thursday). Woohoo!
