From Chicago

Once again, I find myself behind on blogging. I feel like I have so much to share – and, so little time. This past week has been full of dyeing, reading, celebrating (it was my sort of Leap Day birthday), spinning, and seeing some good friends. Tonight in fact, we just got home from the Avalanche/Red Wings game; fun, fun!

Alas, the picture parade has to start somewhere. A few belated things from our Chicago trip:

On Saturday morning, we walked around the city. It was frigid and windy, but I finally got a chance to wear some handknits! If you ever need to search for winter during the winter, Chicago is a good place to start. We had a great time overall, we even had a chance to have a wonderful dinner at Frontera Grill. It’s hard to find restaurants that serve local, sustainable and healthy food. Major, major kudos to Rick!

And, a few snapshots from the wedding….. the happy couple and Scott with some of his high school buddies!

We also ended up making it to Loopy Yarns again this visit. They are now in a new, much more fabulous location. Since I’ve been in my knitting funk, I didn’t bring any knitting with me on the trip (just books). So, when I saw some yummy colored Cascade sock yarn, I knew I had to cast on immediately. I left with a centre-pull ball and a new Addi 32″ US1 needle (cause you can’t ever have enough sock needles, or sock yarn for that matter).

Voila! Some new socks for Scott are underway.
