I had an appointment in the city, right in the heart of downtown Chicago, today. It was hot and humid and gorgeous. People were in cut off jean shorts, high heeled yellow pumps, bike shorts and pedal pushers. We appreciate unexpected fantastic weather and an early spring in this town.
I did some car knitting as Fireman took me downtown. I ripped out my Happy Feet sock. I Just want to keep Shawl knitting right now. So its String Theory's Life Is Good Shawl Pattern. It has a large buttonhole knitted into the piece that really appeals to me. I do not like knotting shawls to secure them.
So I'm Happy Feet yarn knitting for Happy Shoulders.
As we drove home on the expressway I thought it must be odd for folks to visit our city, drive the interstate and see the "l" train coming up in the middle of the highway.
My advice to anyone driving through the city is to get off the interstate and enjoy Lakeshore Drive's beauty. No trucks allowed. Almost never congested. I love Lake Shore Drive.
