Today is Service Day/ MLK jr Day and the last day of winter break. And how am I spending it? sitting inside the house, not enjoying my last day of "freedom." This semester I must be on my A- game. I refuse to be here for another semester. If that is the case I might as well just transfer to a different to Red Wing and become a luthier.

Recently, I talked with Vince, the luthier from Double Bass Workshop in Madison, about what type of repairs he gets. Some of them are very odd and extreme. He told me about this one bass that the face was caving in on itself.  The bass bar was part of the face and was running down the center of the face and was pushing up on the face.  There were other problems with the bass that just made it almost unnecessary and very expensive to be repaired. 

Lately I'm been on a dish cloth knitting kick. I am trying to use up all of my cotton yarn that I have. Once I have it all used I can move on to other things. I really want to make a scarf, but I cannot until I have my hat done. Otherwise I will never finish it. 


  1. Cool blog, Bridget! I love how much you're into cats. My two kitties are sitting hee with me right now.

  2. Hi Bridget,
    I love your blog. I didn't even know it exited until I stumbled across it today while looking at Michael's blog. I love your kitties and the fact you are still knitting!!!
