On Thursday I got into this
left sunny, warm southern California, and flew here
Yep, I’m in Chicago, the windy, and very cold, city. It is funny when I remember (and was rudely reminded by this trip I should note) that it is winter in most parts of this country. They are even putting up holiday decorations here, and I don’t mean thanksgiving! Poor thanksgiving, it really is getting squeezed out between Halloween and Christmas.
I’m in Chicago only through the weekend for another professional conference. I keep finding myself laughing over the contrast between here and home. For example, I submit the view from my hotel window.
I’d like to contrast this with the view from my window in Hollywood.
Some difference hmm? [laugh]
Of course, to be fair, I should point out that if I learn far over and turn my head a bit, I can see a bit of the park off Michigan Avenue from the window. Want to see?
That’s even funnier isn’t it? Well, I’m not here for the views or the weather so I won’t complain, I’ll only laugh.
The trip has given me some opportunity to knit. Nothing like being trapped on a plane to provide quality knitting time. Here, take a look at what it looks like to knit in coach.
Just being in Chicago, I feel connected to other knitters too. All this cold weather reminds me of why most people knit with wool… and there is a lot of wool evident here [grin].
Until next time, I’ll be finding moments to knit some more.
