I went without any handknits, yesterday. Fireman and I wanted to see the Kindlemarket downtown, In Chicago.
The Bean looked so beautiful above the ice rink in Millennium Park.
Let me tell you it was cold! I wore my new winter parka from last year's supersale and it was wonderful. I decided however that
I could knit a hat to go with it, as the hood is very large. I then changed my mind and told Fireman I was going to knit a Baklava instead. Headed into the wind on the long trek back to Union Station, my face was a freezing.
The German Market was charming charming charming.
The crafts were amazing and pricey.
The image on the top of the blog site is from one of the vendors.
We were headed for a special lunch, so we did not partake in the food at the Market. I have to say I nearly snatched a bite of a potato pancake from a woman while she looked away, but I restrained myself. They were also selling beer, brats, stollen,
pretzels, and something called
SolJanka soup that sounded very unique.
Pickles were part of the soup base.....
Have you ever???
