I suppose that some of you may have led a deprived musical life and have never heard a perfectly executed, romantic bossa nova. In Portugese, bossa nova, meaning new trend, was a musical style made popular by Brazilian born, Antônio Carlos Jobim. As a young girl, I was lucky enough to have a father who immersed his kids in music like this.
As I was plying this art yarn, I found myself humming this song. While my first attempt at learning to execute core plying techniques weren't the best, this rendition of Baubles, Bangles and Beads is, well, sublime. The music is inspiring me to keep trying to make baubles and coils in my yarn.
I'll apologize in advance, but if you have to have a song that's stuck in your head, this would be a good one.
