Roll over, Beethoven

Nathan had his piano recital last week. He did an excellent job and I'm very proud of him. He looked like a little professional up there at the baby grand (I'm not biased). He played something called Airy Fairies and Can You Feel the Love Tonight. He did very good on both numbers. Truth is the child can play Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata, Pachabel Cannon in D, Fur Elise and other classical stuff, but this is what he and his teacher agreed on. I'm currently trying to convince him that he should learn Imagine by John Lennon. He's slowly warming up to the idea. He's a classical music snob.
On another note.... I finished the odessa hat and donated to a chemo patient at the hospital I work at. It wasn't a hard pattern once you get the knack of it.
I also started the Brigid sock from Ravelry in some berroco alpaca. I'm doing this pair for my primary care provider. She's taken good care of me and was the only person who seemed to want to consider my blood pressure when I had the onset of horrible headaches. She's also taken good care of the hubby and my kids. She always asks about the projects I'm working on when I go in there. She knows I'm feeling really crappy if I don't bring any knitting in. So, this pair is for her.

Nathan must try any Beatles songs. Image is a great start. Your Odessa is beautiful and I'm certain the receipient is just overwhelmed when she get it.
