Asleep at the Wheel

I saw this great article on CBS Sunday Morning about Asleep at the Wheel. Now I don't LIKE country music but what they do is different-country swing I think. And they are wonderful at it too!. The focus of the piece was on the lead guy, Ray Benson- a nice Jewish guy from Philadelphia! They have been making records for 37 years!

Any way it makes me long for Bob Wills and His Texas Playboys too. A-Haa!

I am knitting this bear from Simply Knits for Cherished Babies by Erica Knight. I am knitting it out of Debbie Bliss Cashmerino which just happens to be the recommended yarn! Isn't he cute? Mine is a soft baby yellow.

Isn't this bunny cute? I may have to get the pattern and knit her too! She is from Baby Cashmerino 2 by Debbie Bliss. My only complaint about Debbie Bliss and most toy patterns is that they are all knit in pieces and sewn together-I hate doing that! I think I would do the face different too...

No No No! They play Country Swing which is an offshoot of Swing-And Their music really does!
Yeah I knew Terri and Ted had some connection to them. Too bad the piece on them was on at 8:30 am Sunday morning or I would have called her up!
