Here I am realizing that it is Thursday and the few days ago that I posted that I would update have long since passed. But here are the long awaited (that might be a stretch) pics from Chicago.
The city was so beautiful, I loved the tall buildings, the night lights, the hustle and busy-ness. I just loved it all. I really enjoyed driving in Chicago as well. It was fun and definetly kept me on my toes!
I was able to go the the Art Institute while we were there. I was so excited as it was Free Feb while I was there. I would have payed to go in, but free…great! I was so excited to see so many painting and sculptures I had only looked at in books. I loved seeing them in 3D. The textures on the paintings were amazing. I found myself staring at them from the side just so I could see the texture. I really wanted to reach out and touch them, but my friend, David, assured me that if I touched the painting that I would not be allowed to touch anymore and I might not be welcome back…LOL!
I also went to Knitche…..okay the outside of it. Their website said that their knit night normally went on until 9 or 9:30 PM, well I got there on knit night around 9:05 and they were counting down their cash register. We hung outside and David even knocked…but to no avail. I was going to use the “I drove all the way from Ohio just to come to your store line,” but I think they saw it in my eye and never did come to the door. I think I may have made them a touch uncomfortable with the picture taking from the outside. We saw, but did not conquer Knitche….oh well, when I return this summer I will try to go again!
Later I will do up the Letter ‘D’. Here’s a hint…it is something Blue….any guesses. If you post to my comments and get it right I will give you a little prize. Something yarn related…or spinning related if you are a spinner. Let others know as well….we can make it fun!
Okay off to Giggles Choir Concert….see you all later!!
