November Greys



We were in Lincoln Park again yesterday and it was pretty grey. We've been graced with a very warm November so far, and we are hoping it makes winter feel shorter this year.....

I am knitting a grey cowl for my friend Linda who asked for one. The Sock Yarn Scrap Bag Cowl by Allinson is the pattern. (Ravelry) If anyone wants a great simple cowl pattern that is actually very boring, this is it. I may make another in a bigger gauge for another friend for Christmas.

I also shot this city scene as the sun was setting yesterday afternoon. The light seemed just right. I did learn from Franklin Habit's class, the importance of the right light. I dont' like the city much. I'm glad it is there for others, but I love the peaceful country. At least with the City of Chicago you get the Lake, the magnificent huge ocean like lake, to make the city feel like part of nature.

Have a happy day even if it is grey.....

It looks incredibly futuristic! And, I've been dying for mindless knits lately while I watch TV and just recover from life, so... thanks for the pattern recommendation :)

Wonderful photo of the city. It brought back memories of a time I stayed in Chicago and walked the trails near the lake.

Nice photo of the city. Sometimes we need some mindless knitting.

A beautiful picture of my "home town." Makes me feel like I've been on that exact spot during another, distant time. Thanks for sharing!

Love the shot of Chicago. I was born there during WWII.

Also love the shot of you with Lake Michigan, source of the dreaded Lake Effect Snow, in the background.

I love the reflection in the water. So pretty.

Great shots!!! But I would think the lake would make the city feel colder as well, esp when the wind is whipping over it!!!

Nothing like a boring knit on a gray day!
