Chi-Town with Knitting Content

Home! Always feels great to sleep in your own bed, yes? Chicago was great, not too much work and more than enough play!

The shot of the partial skyline from the north end of Navy Pier. The weather was AMAZING until the last day when it turned hot and humid. Most days were a glorious 70's with very low humidity and downright chilly nights.

While I catch up with life (and work...) I'll leave you with the travel knitting accomplishments:

Both of the fronts of the Purple Nimbus are on the needles now and they're getting ready to have their armhole decreases.

The back came off the needles shortly after checking in to the hotel room. Less knitting time after 5 hours of driving.

Trip Snippets include Navy Pier, Michigan Avenue, Frank Lloyd Wright, Chicago Style Deep Dish Pizza at the Silo, Stevenson High School (go Patriots) and we'd be remiss not to add Lollapalooza to the list.............. and we missed Kings of Leon! (Hum "Charmer" anyway....)

Tender Buttons was closed due to a lost lease (very sad), and I didn't make it to ONE knit shop, and Chicagoland has so many of them!

Chicago looks beautiful and so does your sweater. Glad you had fun.

What a great idea to knit the fronts at the same time.
